Epic Snowfall at Sun Peaks Moves Up Opening Day
Sun Peaks set to open Saturday, November 14!October 28, 2009 – Sun Peaks, BC – Close to 60 centimetres of snow has fallen in the last seven days, and with another 15cm expected in the next 48 hours, Sun Peaks Resort is moving up the planned opening day to Saturday, November 14, a week ahead of schedule!
“This is the earliest we have seen conditions like this, and to take advantage of this gift, we are going to move the planned opening day up to November 14,” says Jamie Tattersfield, Mountain Operations Manager at Sun Peaks. “We aim to open as many lifts and runs as possible.”
The Sun Peaks Slopes Department has been working diligently to pack all of the fresh snow down, and snow making efforts are continuing to build up the base on OSV, where the Austrian National Ski Team will be training next month. Mountain Operations says the snow making will likely move to the Terrain and Tube Parks in the next couple of weeks.
The final decision on what lifts and runs will be open will made on Monday, November 9.
