After a solid day skiing (well, at least for my 2nd day back on the slopes!) and a few epic stacks including one where I managed to fly what felt like 10 metres down the mountain, lose both my skis and pull a knee muscle in the process, I decided to spend the evening getting a bit of R & R at the Sports and Aquatic Centre!
There’s no denying that when you’re feeling a bit bruised and battered or just exhausted after a big day carving it up then nothing beats a relaxing soak in a hot tub. The Sports and Aquatic center has a hot tub and a heated outdoor pool which are perfect for thawing out, relaxing and in my case relieving aches and pains! The center is also home to the Mascon Hangout where teens can play video games on the Xbox or Wii, watch the latest ski and snowboard movies or just escape from their parents! It really is post-slopes enjoyment for everyone!

Well despite the less then favorable conditions over the
weekend it was great to see many of you out there enjoying the first runs of
the season. And it’s even greater to see that the snow is now really starting
I hit the slopes for the first time this winter yesterday,
and had a blast being taken back to my beginner days on the greens but also
going off trail and discovering some fresh pockets of powder, thanks to all the
snow that’s recently fallen. It definitely did the trick and has got me very
excited for what’s to come!
I’ve been here a little over a week now and I’ve spent some
time getting acquainted with the village and meeting some of the very friendly
locals. I’ve also hit the shops for items to get me ready for the season ahead–
on top of a few necessities I managed to convince myself that an additional
pair of goggles, mittens and another new beanie (or should I say, toque!) were
not ‘wants’ but ‘needs’. This was also the case for the delicious chocolate,
caramel, nut creation that I found at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory -
Well, one thing that is undeniably a ‘need’ are some ski’s
so I’m off to demo some now (it’s down to the Volkl Kenja or the Rossignol
Temptation 82, I’ll let you know how I get on).
Until next time - enjoy your time out on the slopes and make
sure you ski and ride with care!

Hey everyone, my name is Sarah and I’ll be your blogger for the season. Although originally from Australia I’ve spent the last few years in London where one indoor ski slope (150 metres long!) was the best and possibly only option for skiing or riding. So it’s definitely an understatement to say that I’m a little excited to be spending this winter living and working at a world-class ski resort!
I’m really looking forward to keeping you all informed about what’s been happening at Sun Peaks Resort as well as sharing my own experiences with you over the coming months. If you’re wondering how to spend your time when you’re not on the slopes then be sure to check out our Events Calendar – there’s always something going on for everyone.
Apart from the obvious there are lots of other things to do this opening weekend! On Saturday night the annual Fire Fighters Fundraising Gala will take place at The Delta Hotel and there’s also the premiere of LSL Production’s newest ski and snowboard film at Masa’s Bar + Grill.
Enjoy your first day on the slopes - I look forward to seeing you all out there. And don’t forget to keep praying to Mother Nature!
Here's a picture we took on the mountain this morning!
