Sunshine Village Ski Resort will cap off a successful season this Monday, May 19 with the 86th Annual Slush Cup party.

The event will see adventurous skiers and snowboarders fly down the Pando Hill in outlandish costumes as they strive to make it across pool of icy, cold slush water. The brave Sunshine Village guests who attempt this annual feat will be up to receive such prestigious accolades including best belly flop, best face plant and biggest splash to name a few.

Sunshine’s long weekend activities will also include the final acts in the Spring Concert Series, the 6th Annual Bikini’s and Boardshorts Ski & Ride in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, and new Salomon SlushShine Rail Jam.

Sunshine Village is the only resort in the Alberta Rockies now open for skiing and snowboarding, and will remain wide open until Victoria Day on Monday, May 19. Sunshine has received nearly 30 feet of snow this season with a current settled base of 207 cm (6 ft 9 in).

May 17 – Salomon SlushShine Rail Jam starting at 11:30 a.m. on Pando Hill. 
May 17 – 18 – Fernie-based Shred Kelly will perform on Sunshine’s Pepsi Stage starting at 2 p.m.
