83rd Annual Slush Cup at Sunshine - This Weekend!


There are certain events which signify the end of the winter season in the Rockies. One of the biggest is the closing tradition of Sunshine Ski Village – the infamous Sunshine Village Slush Cup.

Picture this: a steep ski hill, a bikini-clad guy (yes, guy) on skis, and a 20ft pond of ice cold water. A bad combination? We think not!

The brave Slush Cup skiers and snowboarders have one objective - to speed down the ski hill, skim across the ice cold water and victoriously reach the other side of the pond….without falling in. Few manage to earn the glorious title (and bragging rights) of reaching the other side and most dent their pride while trying. But it sure is fun to watch.

Skiers are judged on their distance, air, style and perhaps most importantly, the quality of their belly flop, with various prizes awarded at the end of the competition. This year will also see the 3rd annual Bikini’s for Breast Cancer fundraiser on the Strawberry Face. All of this teamed with a live performance from New Moon and you’ve got yet another great weekend at Sunshine Village.

Huge crowds gather to watch the event and it’s a great day out for everyone. It’s a fantastic combination of celebrating the 2010/11 ski season, saying goodbye to winter and enjoying everything that is great about the sport.
