Grouse Mountain welcomes spring with a splash at the Slush Cup this Saturday

Mar 31 2017, 5:49 am

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 your looking for.

This Saturday, April 1, the 2017 Slush Cup takes place at the popular North Vancouver resort, from 11 am to 4 pm.

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.

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.

Those not participating and who just want to watch, can access the Slush Cup by hopping on the Sleigh Ride (departs from the Skate Pond) or by walking along the Snowshoe Grind trail. Ensure you are wearing snow-appropriate footwear.

More information is available online.
