The sun is shining, the groomers are great and the people of Castle are smiling! It must be time for Spring Fest!
Each year we host the Castle Mountain Slush Cup at the base of Whiskey Jack. Contestants strap up their boards and click into their skis and see if they have what it takes to make it all the way across a huge slush pit. (Participants are highly encouraged to dress up in creative costumes whilst slush cupping!) The party judges will be awarding prizes for the first person to surf the entire slush pit, the biggest splash, best crowd reaction & the most steeeeeeeazyyyy!
Following the Slush Cup, will be the long awaited and highly anticipated Cardboard Canoe Race. Think you have the engineering skills to craft a canoe – made entirely out of cardboard and duct tape – that could hold up the entire length of the slush pit? Get to building, find some friends to canoe with you and put your cardboard canoe to the test. Which team will have built the best cardboard canoe to fly them into the gates of victory??
*Participants for both the Slush Cup & the Cardboard Canoe Race must sign waivers at Guest Services prior to entering the event.
