The Big Bear

February 6, 2015 - February 8, 2015
The Big Bear

On Friday February 6, starting at 6pm, street party meets terrain park showdown on Bear Street.  Watch ski and snowboard pros sponsored by Salomon Snowboards, Tecnica/Blizzard, K2 and Icelantic Skis as they stomp out their tricks on custom designed ramps and rails - all to the adrenaline-pumping sounds of DJ Fatmufin and RedBull DJ Adam Doubleyou.  In between sessions you will have a chance to win great prizes including a day on the slopes skiing or riding with one of the pros!  

Food and beverage vendors, including a Molson Beer Garden, will round out this one-of-a-kind event.  The rail jam will wrap up at 9pm and the party will move to the Aurora for the official Big Bear Afterparty, free entry with the purchase of your Big Bear ticket.

The fun doesn't end Friday.  The whole Big Bear weekend will be jam packed with activities and parties that will kick your ski & snowboard mojo into high gear.  Sunshine VillageLake Louise Ski Resort, and Norquay will all have activities happening during the day before you settle down by a crackling fire for some après in Banff or Lake Louise.
