CIP Draw Winner from Edmonton

Congratulations to Will Dempsey of Edmonton who bought a $2 ticket and won a brand new Viking Tent Trailer (and hitch if he needs one) valued at $10,000!

The raffle not only provided one more camper with an excellent get up and go unit, it raised awareness of the Community Initiatives Program here at Snow Valley.

The Community Initiatives Program provides disadvantaged youth and new Canadians a chance to try skiing and snow boarding at no cost to them.  It’s an opportunity not only grow the sport but introduce people to a great winter activity the whole family can enjoy

Big Success at Big Hit presented by Elan!

Despite the bitter cold temperatures, 57 participants braved the weather to show their stuff in the Skiers Sportshop Terrain Park at Snow Valley.  The wind held off and skiers and snowboards in two age divisions demonstrated their tricks and jumps to an appreciative crowd of friends, family and sponsors on a brilliant sunny day.

“Bullet proof” conditions were the rule of the day thanks to Snow Valley’s Park Crew.  They worked diligently throughout the week to rebuild and groom the entire park.

Congratulations to all winners: (See Photos from the Gallery: Click here)
