Opening weekend!

by Sarah21. November 2012 19:15

Well despite the less then favorable conditions over the weekend it was great to see many of you out there enjoying the first runs of the season. And it’s even greater to see that the snow is now really starting to fall!

 

I hit the slopes for the first time this winter yesterday, and had a blast being taken back to my beginner days on the greens but also going off trail and discovering some fresh pockets of powder, thanks to all the snow that’s recently fallen. It definitely did the trick and has got me very excited for what’s to come!

 

I’ve been here a little over a week now and I’ve spent some time getting acquainted with the village and meeting some of the very friendly locals. I’ve also hit the shops for items to get me ready for the season ahead– on top of a few necessities I managed to convince myself that an additional pair of goggles, mittens and another new beanie (or should I say, toque!) were not ‘wants’ but ‘needs’. This was also the case for the delicious chocolate, caramel, nut creation that I found at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory - yum!

 

Well, one thing that is undeniably a ‘need’ are some ski’s so I’m off to demo some now (it’s down to the Volkl Kenja or the Rossignol Temptation 82, I’ll let you know how I get on).

 

Until next time - enjoy your time out on the slopes and make sure you ski and ride with care!

An Opening Day to Remember.

by Sarah21. November 2011 10:10

After a week of solid snowfall we knew opening day was going to be one for the books. There was a fantastic turn out for first lifts, someone even brought in a gas cooker to have a hot breakfast while they waited.

I was lucky enough to tag along with some seasoned pros who knew where to find that untouched powder. We didn't have to go far... I would like to tell you where we went but I don't think they would be to happy with me giving up their spots.

It was a fantastic day and as my first introduction to a Canadian winter it definitely left a great impression!

On Wednesday the Morrisey Express is opening for the season. As it's completely untouched I would lock that date in your calendar. Come take advantage of what will be another epic day here at Sun Peaks Resort.
