Spring skiing and riding…is there anything more fun? Yes, yes there is – it’s our 2017 Slush Cup! 

Join us as competitors, attired in their most ridiculous costume, attempt to cross a pool of slush on their skis or board. We have great prizes for participants from our sponsors, but the cheering crowd is the best prize of all! For onlookers in the “splash zone”, bring your positive vibes and lively support to encourage the best performances from all participants. The available BBQ and beer garden, on Peak flats, will help ensure everyone is properly fueled for fun. 

The action kicks off at 11am and goes until 2pm followed by an awards ceremony and après fun with live music. Participants will be able to hit the pond as many times as they want, and prizes will be given to the best costume, best trick, best crash, crowd favourite and more. Don't forget, creativity is key for our panel of judges!
