Daredevils return to Sun Peaks
Sun Peaks Resort is hosting an FIS Speed Ski World Cup event from Feb. 28 to March 3.
“In 2002. we hosted our first FIS World Cup event and the rest, as they say, is history," said Adam Earle, event organizer and longtime speed skier.
"Now, we are the only speed-skiing event in North America and all the fastest skiers in the world come to test their mettle on the Headwall Speed Track.”
Dressed in skin-tight rubber suits, wearing eight-foot long skis and helmets Darth Vader might wear, skiers will race down the mountain at speeds upward of 150 km/h.
