It’s not every weekend that Mount Baldy holds a jam-packed weekend of adventurous activities for the whole family. Fortunately, those who find accommodations at the Walnut Beach Resort from February 15 to 17 can take part in all the snowy fun at the Mt. Baldy¬†Winter Carnival, a celebration that’s suited for all ages and skiing experience levels.
Are you a daredevil when it comes to the slopes? If you’re ready to flaunt your talents and compete against the best of the rest, then you should make sure to find out the details of the “SlackCountry Cup,” where judges will rate participants on flow, style and rhythm as they make their way down the powdery mountain. If you’re more of an observer than a skilled rider, then you can watch the elite snowboarders and skiers glide their way to flat land and see for yourself who will take the top prize.
Everyone can enjoy Friday night’s party, sponsored by Oliver’s Firehall Brewery. Keeping the lodge warm with frothy libations and live music, the event will also include a “king of the table” pool tournament for anyone interested in really heating things up during the carnival weekend.¬†
Big Surf Brewery from Kelowna will be present Saturday and other contests will fill¬†the day’s agenda, so those staying just down the road at the luxurious Osoyoos hotel should make sure to attend the festivities.
