Lunch: Warm food available to purchase by donation. Mac and Cheese, Chilli and more.
Snow Sculpture Competition: UPDATE: Attention snow sculptors - The recent fluffy snow is not ideal for sculpting, so we're turning it into a snow “painting “ contest. Bring your own water colors and water-based paints, food coloring, brushes and spray bottles. Anything you can think of (as long as it's not harmful to the environment) to create a fun colorful piece of art in the snow. We'll have a flat area groomed so you can show us some of your creative flair!!
Ski and Snowboard Race: A fun, casual downhill race for skiers and snowboarders of all ages. Each run will be casually timed, with a jump and obstacles to challenge each competitor. Prizes will be awarded for fastest run in each category. Registration 9am-12.30pm
