Even though it feels like summer, it’s hard to believe that Banff’s Sunshine Village is still open for skiers and snowboarders alike! And this weekend, their last weekend of the season, promises to be their craziest weekend of the year!
This weekend, Sunshine Village Ski Resort will cap off a successful season this Monday, May 18 with the 87th Annual Slush Cup party. The event will see adventurous skiers and snowboarders fly down the Pando Hill in outlandish costumes as they strive to make it across pool of icy, cold slush water.
I’m actually going to be judging the competition asbrave Sunshine Village guests who attempt this annual feat will be up to receive such prestigious accolades including best belly flop, best face plant and biggest splash to name a few.
But the festivities aren’t just on Monday, Sunshineâ€™s long weekend celebrations will also include the final acts in the Snowchella Concert Series, the 7th Annual Bikinis and Boardshorts Ski & Ride in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, and the 2nd annual Salomon SlushShine Rail Jam.
Sunshine Village is the only resort in the Alberta Rockies now open for skiing and snowboarding, and will remain wide open until Victoria Day on Monday, May 18.
The resortâ€™s long weekend events include:
May 16 â€“ Salomon SlushShine Rail Jam starting at 11:30 a.m. on Pando Hill.
May 16 â€“ 18 â€“ New Moon hits the Pepsi stage all weekend and Slush Cup Monday.
May 17 â€“ Seventh annual Bikinis and Boardshorts Ski & Ride in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation starts at noon at the top of Strawberry lift.
May 18 â€“ The 87th Annual Slush Cup starts at 1:30 p.m. in the village.
To help celebrate this weekend, I’m giving away three lift passes to one lucky winner! Â The passes are good for Saturday or Sunday or Monday. Â You can decide what day you want to go. But I’m there on Monday if you want to cheer on the Slush Cup with me on Monday!
