The past few weeks of 2012 not only saw a number of incredible powder days but also some great events both on and off the slopes! The personal highlight for me, other than experiencing my first ever white Christmas was seeing the village come to life for Santa’s Alpine Visit! I also had an amazing New Year’s Eve and there’s no denying that the year definitely ended with a bang at the celebrations on Monday night. It was an epic sendoff to 2012 and those that made it down to the village were not disappointed by the tricks thrown down at the First Flight Big Air Invitational, Dan Oig singing live on stage, the fantastic fireworks and of course the torchlight parade! It must have been a big night for many of you as the slopes were suspiciously quiet on New Year’s morning!
As we enter another year, I thought it would be appropriate to make some ski season specific New Year’s resolutions. On top of just improving my skiing on more difficult terrain I’ve also decided I’d like to pick up a new winter sport – I’ve tried snowboarding before (without success!) and so I’ve decided to give Nordic Skiing a go! I’ve heard so much about it, particularly since being at Sun Peaks and since it’s meant to be great exercise I’ve really got nothing to lose! I’ve booked myself in for the Introduction to Nordic Skiing program and I’ll be sure to let you all know how I get on!
2013 is already looking great; we’ve had some beautiful sunny days and yesterday the 7th Annual Sun Peaks Family Cup got underway! Over the next two weeks there are a number of family activities, events and competitions going on with the signature race taking place on Saturday, January 12th. Make sure you check out the schedule of events for more details.
Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all have a fun and fulfilling 2013 with lots of free time to hit the slopes and of course plenty of powder days, first lifts and fresh tracks!
