Sun Peaks set for Snow Festival
The 10th annual Alcan Husky Nancy Greene Snow Star Festival is set for this weekend.
More than 550 children aged five to 12 will take part in multiple events, including a mini velocity-speed challenge, moguls, dual races and ski cross.
“It’s now the biggest youth ski event in Canada,” said John Crichton, Sun Peaks Alpine Club’s program director.
“The kids just land at Sun Peaks and go crazy for a couple days.”
Crichton said the festival is spectator-friendly.
“It’s a really fun event for people to come up and watch and ski around.”
The festival runs all day on Friday, March 23, and Saturday, March 24.
