A brand new slopestyle event hit the Rockstar Energy Terrain Park on Sunday, March 17. The Duff Invitational Slopestyle brought local legend Chris Dufficy and friends to Sun Peaks for this fun and social event everyone was invited to enter. With a warm and sunny day serving as the slopestyle backdrop, a TON of cash and prizing up for grabs, 'best Daffy' and 'best backside 180' contests from SBC Skier and Snowboard Canada, and event proceeds going to the Kamloops Brain Injury Association, it was an awesome way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day!

With nearly 2 metres of fresh snow falling through the month of December, we've seen countless powder days and fantastic early season conditions all over the mountain. However, to every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction. Our groomers have been pushed to their limits and in this case, the reaction to all this snow meant groomers temporarily turning their direction from park development, to the slopes.
That being said, those Piston Bullies have been putting in long hours to keep park development rolling along as much as possible through December and we're stoked to report that the Rockstar Energy Terrain is now fully open for the winter season!
B&B Board Shop presented the 3rd Annual Resurgence Rail Jam on Sunday, December 9. Although temps were chilly, snow was dumping and pow was abundant, we still saw record entrants battling it out in the park!
