After a week of solid snowfall we knew opening day was going to be one for the books. There was a fantastic turn out for first lifts, someone even brought in a gas cooker to have a hot breakfast while they waited.
I was lucky enough to tag along with some seasoned pros who knew where to find that untouched powder. We didn't have to go far... I would like to tell you where we went but I don't think they would be to happy with me giving up their spots.
It was a fantastic day and as my first introduction to a Canadian winter it definitely left a great impression!
On Wednesday the Morrisey Express is opening for the season. As it's completely untouched I would lock that date in your calendar. Come take advantage of what will be another epic day here at Sun Peaks Resort.

Welcome to the 2011-12 winter! This is Hayden here your blogger for the season, coming all the way from New Zealand to keep you informed on what’s happening around Sun Peaks Resort throughout the winter.
Having been travelling for the greater part of the year and missing out on a winter, I think I've been getting withdrawals of not being able to ride. What’s making it so much harder is that over the last couple of days we have had 39cm of fresh snow, causing us to tap our feet trying to make opening day come that little bit faster even though it’s just around the corner.
I will be up on the slopes on Saturday for the opening day of the 50th Anniversary season enjoying my first taste of a Canadian winter and from what I hear this is going to be a spectacular one!
I look forward to seeing you out there on the slopes, amongst the glades, lapping the park or shredding some pow!

March has roared in like a lion here at Sun Peaks. The last two days of February dropped 25cm on us with an additional 64cm in the first week of March. Everyone has been out slashing pow and tearing round in the trees. I love how great snow makes everyone (feel like) better riders! There is nothing like some freshies under your feet to generate some courage.
It’s been a stellar season. We are only 7cm away from surpassing our annual average snowfall of 559cm and we still have four weeks of winter operations left. With nothing but flurries in the forecast we will exceed that in no time at all and my instincts tell me we still have a few epic pow days before spring hits. If you have photos or videos from the last couple weeks be sure to share it on our Facebook page so we can all relish in the snow stoke. You can also enter your photos in the JAY-peg Photo Contest to win great prizes, including the snowboard hanging in Cafe Soleil. This weekend the focus will flip from the powdery alpine to the Rockstar Energy Terrain Park. Locals and pros will be competing in the You Look Good Rider’s Cup slopestyle event. Check out their website to preview the lines, check out winners from other venues and register if you have your eyes on the prize.If you are on your way here for spring break you're sure to have some great conditions for your holiday. There is also a ton of live music in the village this month as its March Music Madness so your après can be almost as entertaining as your time on the mountain. Make sure to take advantage of our package deals if you are headed our way!Spring slush fun is in the future but for now everyone should get out there play in the powder. You don’t too many more days to rack up the numbers on your pass!See you out there!Brandi
