Official 50th Anniversary Celebration, Saturday, December 3
Sun Peaks, BC – From huddling under a horse blanket for the ride up the chairlift on Tod Mountain, to Ladies Cocktail Parties on the Ridge ski run, the stories and memories from the first days of skiing at Tod Mountain will be centre stage on Saturday, December 3rd as Sun Peaks Resort gets set to host their Official 50th Anniversary Celebrations.
Lift tickets are 50% off for every skier and snowboader enjoying the mountain on December 3rd, but the party doesn’t stop at the lifts. Enjoy live music from Paul Filek, the Miss Tod Mountain Pageant, a barbeque at Masa’s Bar + Grill, a 50th anniversary cake and more!
Sun Peaks is also kicking off a new tradition with a 50th Anniversary Time Capsule. Bring your favourite present day mementos to be included and in ten years, join us as we crack open the box and enjoy the memories. The capsule will be available for contributions until the Grand Reunion Gala on January 27, at which time it will be officially locked for the next decade.
Don’t forget to pull out your retro wear! Skiers and snowboarders with the best retro looks will have a chance to win some fantastic swag.
Also on display on December 3rd is the 50th Anniversary Quilt, put together by the Sun Peaks Quilters Guild. Stop by Guest Services to check it out!
