The sun was shining for our 7th Annual Sun Peaks Family Cup on Saturday and despite the freezing temperatures we saw a record number of competitors as well as some enthusiastic spectators who came down to cheer them on!
While there’s no doubt that the Canadians and Australians dominated each of the divisions there was also a number of English and Kiwi racers who did their countries proud. The Linder’s from Canada smashed their competition in the family category taking 1st place with a 6 second lead on the next fastest family, the Avery’s also from Canada. 3rd place was the Reid family from Australia who narrowly missed out on 2nd place by less than a quarter of a second!
Strong times in both the individual and group categories meant that Australia were once again this year’s overall winners of the Family Cup, with a total of 20 points! Canada came a close 2nd with 18 points followed by England in 3rd place. Click here for a full list of individual, family and group results.
While the Sun Peaks Family Cup celebrations may have come to an end for another year the fun and festivities definitely haven’t, particularly for the adults who can now indulge their après-ski desires! Wining and dining is the focus at the 15th Annual Sun Peaks festival of Wine, with culinary events, wine tasting and educational seminars taking place every day until January 20th! Check out the program for more info on the various activities!
