First Bear of Spring 2008 – Banff National Park

27 Mar
A big male grizzly was photographed on March 16th by a Trans-Canada Highway Project remote camera in the lower Bow Valley. Male grizzlies typically emerge out of their dens in mid-March. Female bears with their cubs tend to emerge mid-April.

This is an indicator that Spring is here and we need to be bear aware!

 

Sunshine Boosts Size of Rogers Terrain Park by 1/3

06 Mar

The opening of the Grizzly terrain park section has added four new acres of features to test the skills of riders of all levels while boosting the size of Sunshine Village’s famed Rogers Terrain Park by one-third.

Skiers and boarders now can access 12 full acres of the Rockies’ best jumps, boxes and rails while enjoying the spectacular beauty of Sunshine Village.

”We’re really excited about all the new features which add so much more to our terrain park experience,” said Tim Hyndman, Terrain Park Supervisor. ”We’ve received extremely positive feedback about the four biggest and boldest jibs we’ve ever built at Sunshine Village.”

Grizzly has awesome features ranging from small to extra-large, including four large and extra large jibs. The highlight is a 24 foot long by four foot high box, professionally painted by local artists Don Petersen and Anthony Orsatti from New World Samurai Tattoo Studio in Canmore.

”We were approached by Sunshine staff to create a piece for the terrain park and we jumped at the opportunity,” said Petersen. ”We’re thrilled with the way it turned out and look forward to doing more work in such a fantastic venue.”

Come bask in the sun and snow at Sunshine Village. With great weather forecasted, skiers and boarders can revel in the warmth while enjoying Canada’s Best Snow.

Sunshine Village, Alberta’s number one ski and snowboard resort receives over 30 feet of natural snow annually and boasts 12 lifts, including the most quads in the Canadian Rockies. Sunshine each year attracts more than 500,000 skiers and boarders during Canada’s longest season stretching from November to the end of May.

Ski Holidays in Western Canada can be booked through rocky-peak Ski Holidays.
