Spring at Sunshine

Sunshine announces spring events line-up

April 1, 2014

 

As if you needed a reason to get out to Sunshine and take advantage of a 237 cm (7 ft. 9 in) snow base and the best spring skiing in the Rockies, but in case you need a bit more convincing, Sunshine Village has a stellar line-up of events happening all the way up until the last day of the season on May 19th.  

Sunshine’s spring events lineup includes:

Brand new Molson Coors Spring Beer Gardens

Voted one of the best spring events in North America, Slush Cup features wild and crazy individuals brave enough to ski or ride into a pool of ice cold, slush water, wearing their craziest and most original outfits.
