Itinerary:
Come out and join us for a beautiful day at Sunshine Village for the last day of the season skiing or boarding.
Bring your sunscreen and a friend and sign up. The weather is supposed to be warm that day.

This is going to be a real relaxed event, as the snow conditions are probably not going to be great, but who cares? ***It is Slush cup, costumes are ENCOURAGED ** Even if it’s just a funny hat or a boa or Jersey

When you sign up don’t forget to say if you can drive or how many you can take.***If you plan on driniking lots PLEASE indicate that you CANNOT drive***

When we get to the hill each car can decide where you want to get ready and we will meet just outside the lodge at the top of the hill by the Angel chair at 1015am and break up into similar ability levels.

Since the snow doesn’t soften up until around 10 or 11 ,we are not leaving super early in the morning,and will prob take a late lunch at about 1 PM in the Top lodge.( or pub deck TBA)


****Please show up 10 minutes early to the car pool, which will be the north part of the Petro Canada station. If you have any questions about carpooling please Sue at 403- 818 6124*** if you were going to be late or delete your membership after the cut off please call Terrie 403 828 9434
