Skate Sun Peaks Freeride Presented By Landyachtz
The first of its kind in North America, Skate Sun Peaks presented by Landyachtz is a tight and techy Freeride at Sun Peaks Resort near Kamloops BC with a ski lift back to the top! On June 11-12, only downhill skaters will get endless runs down 17 unique corners, 14 of which skaters will have to drift to control speed. Make sure to stop by the World’s First Longboard Park in Kamloops on your way up to the mountain.
Free camping is included for volunteers and only $5 per night for participants but the resort is also really affordable and welcoming especially considering the low Canadian dollar. Invite your friends and family because they will be able to watch every corner of the track from the restaurant patio at the bottom or from your hotel deck, no obstructions! There tons to do for everyone like hike, mountain bike, golf or hit the village to shop and eat.
