Delirium Dive

Sunshine Village opens Delirium Dive

February 27, 2014

Sunshine Village Ski Resort is poised to open one of the most recognized freeride zones around the globe with the launch of Delirium Dive today.

The widely expansive terrain, which is set to open at 11:30 a.m., is the result of multiple mid-season snowfalls, in addition to the hard work of the Sunshine Village on-mountain team. 

“Through the excellent work of both our ski patrol and snow safety teams, we are pleased to announce to guests the opening of our internationally recognized advanced terrain,” begins Dave Riley, Chief Operating Officer, Sunshine Village Ski Resort.  “The opening of Delirium Dive, coupled with last week’s opening of the Wild West, is a glowing testament to Sunshine’s emphasis in providing guests an exceptional big mountain experience.”

Delirium Dive is a shining example of Sunshine Village’s commitment to providing the best extreme terrain possible within a ski and snowboard resort’s boundary. The Dive features over 2,000 feet of vertical, a 40 degree average pitch and over 600 acres of terrain.

Delirium Dive is located off the summit of Lookout Mountain and is often home to the best snow conditions in the Canadian Rockies. 

Like all of Sunshine’s freeride zones, the following safety requirements are mandatory for access: You must carry an avalanche transceiver, shovel and probe and must have a partner with you who is similarly equipped and competent in using the above-mentioned equipment.

Delirium Dive is subject to weather and snow closures, including avalanche control work.

The resort also provides guided programs for expert skiers and snowboarders through Sunshine Village Ski and Snowboard School.
