Not quite sure what to pack for your week at CLSB17? Read on...
When you go ‘boarding in January or when you hit the beach in the summer it's all very simple and straightforward. But Snowbombing Canada takes place on the cusp of the seasons and pretty much has one foot in winter and the other in beautiful spring so you never know which temperature you're going to get!
The forecast from April 6th is expected to be pleasant BUT this is Canada and weather can change – so don’t get caught out! Even if you’re in a t-shirt and shorts in the afternoon, it will still be crisp around Sun Peaks and Kamloops at night…and the forest always has a chill in the air after the sun disappears – hats and jackets are a good idea when heading off around the resort after dark.
That pure, white, beautiful Canadian snow reflects the sun like crazy, and sunburn begins as soon as you set foot on the mountain. If you are a little fair of skin, then ensure your suncream is part of your kit for the day, and do apply it regularly! Don't go any lower than Factor 15 (or get ready for some serious goggle tan). It's also handy to have a lip balm to ensure full, voluptuous lips after a heavy day on the slopes... You'll never get anywhere in Chairlift Speed Dating with a dried-up pout.
Sunglasses are essential for a snow holiday, the reflection is intense and without them you won’t be able to ski/’board and will end up buying goggles with money you ought to be spending on beer. Likewise with gloves. You WILL fall over and snow is cold and wet. Don’t be forking out cash for expensive ski gloves when you can pick up a cheaper pair before you get here.
And of course, most important of all, you need to let us know whether you're packing your Lumberjack or Lederhosen costume for our infamous Street Party! Strut through Sun Peaks letting everyone know who's side you're on. Stein or (plastic) axe, the choice is yours! One thing for sure, you'd better not forget those dancing shoes.
See you in the sun & snow! x
