If ripping down a slope on your skis or snowboard and attempting to get across a freezing cold pool of water is your idea of a good time, then Grouse Mountain has what you’re looking for.
This Saturday, April 21, the 2018 Slush Cup takes place at the popular North Vancouver resort.
For those unfamiliar with the concept of a Slush Cup, the object is simply to make it across a pool of water, on your skis or board, without falling in, while decked out in a ridiculous costume.
Sounds easy enough, right? Well, you may be surprised at how tricky it can be. And therein lies the fun.
The action kicks off at 1 pm and goes until 4 pm, followed by an awards ceremony and après fun with live music.
Participants can hit the pond as many times as they want, and prizes will be given to the best costume, best trick, best crash, crowd favourite, and more.
Registration is $10, but the cost of admission is not included – lift tickets and passes are available for purchase at Guest Services at the base of Grouse Mountain.
More information is available online.
When: Saturday, April 21
Time: 1 pm to 4 pm
