What's Happening?

by Sarah8. December 2011 21:54
With dumping nights and bluebird days so early in the season, we're so pumped for the months ahead!

This weekend the Green terrain park (located at the base of the Sundance Express lift) plays host to the resurgence rail jam for the second year running. Sponsor B&B Boardshop is putting some sweet prizes up for grabs and a cash prize to the men's open category winner. This event will be the kick start to the season long point series, where the overall winner will walk away with an additional cash prize and the ‘No Bail Peace Prize’ title. Expect to see some amazing tricks thrown down by these talented skiers and riders.

The events calendar is continuing to grow with increasing weekly happenings, as we lead up to the holiday season. We have our regular weekly activities beginning next week. For the powder hounds the First Tracks Breakfast will be on every Tuesday morning; get exclusive runs on all designated trails accessed from the Crystal Chairlift and receive a hearty breakfast at the Sunburst Restaurant *please note that tickets must be purchased in advance from the Adventure Centre on the previous day by 3:00pm. Wednesday’s we have the Family Fun Night at the Skating Rink; one for the kids or kids at heart. With different games to be played on the rink every week, hot chocolate and a bonfire on location to keep everyone warm. Then on Thursdays, the Fondue Dinner & Evening Descent is a truly unique experience. Enjoy a twilight ride up to the Sunburst Restaurant where you will you will be served some delicious fondue and entertained with live music. After the meal you will cruise down under the stars to lantern lit slopes; perfect for a romantic night out or just a great way to end your day on the mountain.

The shops come to you next weekend, with the 4th Annual Christmas Market happening on the 16 & 17. It provides the perfect place to find unique and hand made gifts, along with many other goods on offer. In the days leading up to Christmas Santa will be taking a quick break to stop off at Sun Peaks. Join him while he’s carving some turns on the slopes, going on a sleigh ride or just relax and enjoy a delicious good old fashioned pancake breakfast with him!

With bellies still full from the all the fabulous Christmas dinners, put on by many of the local restaurants. Stand in awe on New Year’s with the spectacular 5th annual First Flight Big Air Invitational in the Terrain Park followed by the famous Torchlight Parade and Fireworks. It’s an event not to be missed and an experience that won’t be forgotten! Don’t forget your camera!

All the regular annual season events will be returning; Winter Festival of Wine, 16th Annual TELUS Nancy Greene Corporate Challenge, the Velocity Challenge, the Adaptive Snow Sports Festival, as well as many other ski and snowboard competitions. And don’t forget the 50th Anniversary specific events that will be happening throughout the season. For dates and information click here to go straight to the events calendar.

Have a great weekend!
