Sun Peaks, BC (May 14, 2013) - Sun Peaks Resort won BC Alpine Mountain Resort of the Year at the organization’s annual awards banquet last week. The Sun Peaks Alpine Club also walked away with three other awards for the 2012-13 ski season.
“We’re thrilled with the success of the Sun Peaks Alpine Club and its members,” says Anne Haight, director of sales and marketing for Sun Peaks Resort Corporation. “These recent BC Alpine accolades validate Sun Peaks’ ongoing commitment to providing an exceptional sport venue and fostering alpine racing in British Columbia.”
BC Alpine Club Development of the Year went to Sun Peaks Alpine Club. The club also received the BC Alpine Development Coach of the Year to James Clarkson and BC Alpine Volunteer of the Year to Karen Cowburn.
"The Sun Peaks Alpine Club is very excited to receive the awards. To be recognized in a province that is so deep in skiing and ski racing history is humbling to say the least,” says Johnny Crichton, currently the BC Ski Team head coach and last winter's program director for Sun Peaks Alpine Club. “It's a direct result of the team work from Sun Peaks Resort Corporation, Sun Peaks Alpine Racers, and all their partners that made this possible. That and the fact Sun Peaks is full of amazing people."
