Don’t miss a fun-filled weekend at Sunshine Village

January 14, 2015

Join Sunshine Village as we celebrate both FIS World Snow Day with free skiing for the kids and Avalanche Awareness Days-- jam packed with fun and learning.

Kids ski free on Saturday, January 17th and Sunday, January 18th with the purchase of an adult lift ticket, season pass, Sunshine Marmot card, Costco or AMA lift ticket.

Visit our Snow Safety team who will be in the village both days displaying fake bombs, answering questions and showing off an old avalauncher gun-- ready for photos.

Guests can also check out a transceiver and Recco demo at the top of Wawa Basin where they will also learn shoveling and probing techniques. On Saturday there will be an explosives demo on the north cornice at 2 p.m. (visibility permitting) and on Sunday, Avalanche rescue dog Ferra will be doing a demo at 2 p.m. at the top of the Wawa lift beside Beacon Basin.

Be sure to end the weekend on a high note by heading to the Banff Centre on Sunday night for the annual Avi Awareness film night with Kevin Hjertaas as co-host!
