The Big Bear

On Friday, February 5th and Saturday, February 6th, The Big Bear is heading to the "Train Station" in Downtown Banff.  Watch ski and snowboard pros as they stomp out their tricks at this unique location - all to the adrenaline-pumping sounds of DJ's.  In between sessions you will have a chance to win great prizes, including tickets to the Saturday night “Official After Party” at Wild Bills featuring DJ Felix Cartal with special guest DJ B-KODE.  Entry to The Big Bear Event is FREE and tickets for the After Party will be given away through contests and giveaways, so you must WIN to Get In.

The Big Bear event will kick off on the Friday Night from 6PM - 9PM, creating some fun competition between the three ski & snowboard resorts, with the Terrain Park Showdown.  On Saturday we will open up at 3PM until 9PM with Beer Garden, DJ music and the little kids Burton Riglet Park to try out. Lace up your skates and try the outdoor rink with some of your friends, also right there at the Train Station.  Starting at 5:30PM, teams will throw down their best tricks, while judges will determine who will walk away with the biggest cash prize.   

Food and beverage vendors, including a Beer Garden with a DJ, The Red Bull Team and Coors Light Girls will round out this one-of-a-kind event.
