January 15, 2014

Great conditions make for another fantastic upcoming weekend and some free family fun. Celebrate FIS World Snow Days at Sunshine Village this upcoming Saturday, January 18 and Sunday, January 19. Kids under 12 can ski or snowboard for FREE with the purchase of an adult lift ticket (up to two child tickets per one purchased adult lift ticket). The offer is also extended to Sunshine Marmot Card holders (discounted passes) as well as Season Pass holders and Costco ticket purchasers.

FIS World Snow Day is part of the ‘Bring Children to the Snow' campaign, which aims to encourage FIS Member National Ski Associations to promote snow sports within their country. FIS World Snow Day seeks to look a little further beyond the FIS membership to the wider snow sports community.

This worldwide event seeks to motivate children by encouraging everyone to celebrate all things snow around the world simultaneously. World Snow Day is one of the biggest days on snow all year and is celebrated annually.

Adding to this weekend’s events, Sunshine Village has seen an epic amount of recent snowfall, providing exceptional conditions leading into the third week of 2014. 

This past weekend Sunshine Village saw an incredible amount of snowfall, with over 30 cm (12 in) of fresh powder hitting the slopes during the weekend of January 11th, and over 20 cm (8 in) of white gold falling overnight Sunday into Monday.

This upcoming weekend will be jam-packed full of family fun, and not to mention optimal ski conditions. The amazing snowfall over the past few days has brought the resort’s settled base up to 159 cm (5 ft 3 in) with a cumulative snowfall of 393 cm (12 ft 11 in) since the season started.

Bright sunny skies and warmer temperatures are headed this way just in time for the weekend and perfect timing for FIS World Snow Days.
