Snowbombing Canada is finally a reality! For the first time ever, Europe’s largest ski resort festival, Snowbombing is jumping across the pond and will be taking place in BC’s very own Sun Peaks Resort in 2017. Skiers, snowboarders and music festival fans alike can rejoice over this unrivalled snow-shredding, igloo raving extravaganza!
For the past 18 years, Snowbombing has been taking place in Mayrhofen, Austria, showcasing big names like The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, Bastille, Carl Cox, Fatboy Slim and more. While Snowbombing Canada’s lineup has not been announced, we know the festival will take place on April 6-10, 2017 at Sun Peaks Mountain Resort, hosted by Coors Light.
EAT. SKI. RAVE. REPEAT.
Set in the mountains, the itinerary of a typical Snowbombing day is a morning packed with skiing or snowboarding, catching a quick dinner break before you’re out of your snow gear and then heading off to one of the festival’s igloo venues for an unforgettable night of music and partying. Seems like a natural Canadian fit, right? Which is probably why Snowbombing has had it’s sights on North America for a very long time. “20 years ago when we started Snowbombing it was a very distant dream to one day do it in North America,” said Gareth Cooper, CEO of Broadwick Live, the festival’s organizers. “Now, with the help of an iconic brand like Coors Light, that dream is to become a reality and we are so proud and excited to be able to launch Snowbombing, Canada in the superbly stunning Sun Peaks resort. Not only is this one of the best ski locations in Canada, but strangely it looks just like our Austrian home, Mayrhofen! We cannot wait to come and share our unique style of après ski and passion for music with the people of Canada.”
As this is Canada’s first major ski resort music festival, it’s safe to assume it’ll be a mad race for tickets and resort rentals as excited festival-goers ensure their spot at what’ll be a highly-anticipated adventure. Visit snowbombingcanada.com for more information and updates.
