May 13 & 14: This Weekend @ Banff Sunshine Village Take advantage of the last 10 days of Canada’s Best Spring Skiing at the last resort open in Alberta before this is too late! With a cooler spell of weather rolling through this week, making sure to keep the snow pristine, as well as a host of exciting events around the mountain, there’s never been a better time to get these last few lines in, before summer officially hits. Here’s what’s happening this weekend at Banff Sunshine Village. Saturday 13th Bikinis and Boardshorts – presented by Roxy & Quiksilver: Join our 9th Annual Bikinis and Boardshorts fundraiser in aid of the Canadian Breast Cancer foundation! Our event is back bigger and better than ever: more activities, more prizes and so much snow. In addition to the usual activities, including the Bikinis and Boardshorts run down the Strawberry face, we have two new exciting races - the Raft Obstacle Course and the Fat Bike Race. If you didn’t manage to register your team in time, don’t worry. All these events will be open to the public in exchange of a donation, with a bunch of prizes and giveaways up for grabs. Prizes valued over $6,500 for the raffle and silent auction alone! This is time to undress to your swimsuit and meet us at the tent outside of the Alpine Day Lodge for a fun day benefitting a great cause. Sunday 14th Mother’s Day – Moms ski for FREE: Nothing says “I love you” better than a day riding side by side with Mom on your favourite slopes! Let Mom know how much you appreciate her this Mother’s Day by bringing her to Sunshine for a FREE day skiing with the family! All mothers coming this Sunday accompanied by their child to Banff Sunshine Village will receive a FREE pass alongside the purchase of a Child or Youth Day Ticket. Create some Sunshine memories with Mom before the snow is gone for Summer. Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th Coors Light Spring Concert Series ft. Michael Bernard Fitzgerald This week gracing the PEPSI stage is Calgary’s own export, Michael Bernard Fitzgerald! After leaving Alberta to pursue a life on the road, MBF returns home to headline our second last Spring Concert for the season, bringing a wealth of live show experience with him. With a mixture of songs featuring everything from upbeat electro-pop tunes with pounding drum and bass rhythms to down-tempo acoustic soul ballads showing off a diverse vocal range, his show will keep you engaged and wanting more.
