Tod Mountain Days - End of Winter

by Sarah11. April 2012 12:34

Over the Easter weekend, we wrapped up winter with our annual end of season events. We had an Easter Egg Bonanza in which the Easter Bunny had hidden a bunch of chocolate eggs along 5 Mile. There was a fantastic turn out and the kids were over the moon when the Easter Bunny himself made an appearance. Soon after the madness of the egg hunt we held the Dummy Downhill. Teams could construct there dummies however they wanted the only big rule was the dummies had to be free of any living cells, explosives, or remote controls!

First place was awarded to team 'Skeleton' with their coffin and its occupant soaring sky high. Team '50th' sweetened the deal earning the second place position and Team 'Red Barron' flew into third place.

On the Monday we held the Slush Cup which was a huge crowd pleaser and hands down the funniest competition to happen on the slopes of Sun Peaks Resort all winter long. Participants had to mentally prepare themselves to hurl their costumed bodies across an ice cold slush pond with the goal of making it to the dry shores at the far end of the pond... That never happened but a few came close.

The overall winners were:

1.    Maurice

2.    Bob

3.    Jan

The other category winners were:

Top Costume: Madeline as the wizard.
Best Style: Sebastian
Crowd Applause: Jack

During the entire weekend people rocked out in their vintage outerwear, rear entry boots, straight skis and neon one piece outfits for the "Retro Weekend" theme and being bluebird all weekend long, the fluorescent zinc could be spotted from a mile away!

It was a fantastic few days and a great way to end the 2011/12 season! A huge thanks goes to our sponsor Kamloops Computer Centre.

See you again next season; it's only seven months away!
