The Friday Race Series

by Sarah19. March 2012 18:44

One of our most popular weekly events is The Friday Race Series; it's a recreational racing event for all level of skiers and snowboarders. Racers are split up into Local and Visitor categories and then into further age divisions. We've had competitors as young as three and todays oldest was 71. With your race entry fee you get two timed runs and a chance at medals and prizing.

This event has been running since the Tod Mountain days and Sun Peaks Resort is one of the only resorts to offer a weekly recreational fun race. Making it very popular with around 50 – 70 local and visiting competitors each week!

There was a quick inspection of the track, to make sure everything was in top condition and then the racing commenced at 12pm on the dot! The level of each skier varied from the seasoned pro to people just wanting to ‘give it a go’ but no matter the level, everyone was having fun.

This coming Friday the 23rd is the final race for the season and along with the regular prizing, our fastest local throughout the series will be crowned and awarded the grand prize.

Once the races are complete and times are tallied, everybody heads to Masa's Bar + Grill for celebratory drinks and prize giving. Here you can sit back, have a laugh and share your experiences of the day.

Thanks to the Rosedale on Robson Hotel and Masa's Bar + Grill for sponsoring the Friday Race Series and supplying such fantastic prizes and to all the volunteers, because without them giving up their time each week we wouldn't have such a fun event!

See you this Friday for the Grand Finale!
