This is the last weekend to ski & snowboard Captain's & Whitestar, & The Fun Never Stops is on Sunday!
This weekend marks our "official" last weekend of the season (but cos we love you all so much, we decided to stay open for another week), so on Sunday we're holding the annual Fun Never Stops race. Check out all the race info below!
This weekend will also be your last chance to ski Captain's Basin & Whitestar Express – from Monday onwards, we'll be running the McDougall's Chondola & the Learner Conveyors only. It'll give you one last week to get your snow fix in before we wrap up Winter 2018 for good... then we're full steam ahead to prepare for our Summer 2018/19 Opening Day on December 1!
The week ahead is looking like it should be a mostly fun week in the Spring sun! The team at Snow-Forecast.com are predicting a sunny week with a couple of random showers here & there.
The Fun Never Stops is our celebration of the transition from winter to summer, with a ski/snowboard/mountain bike adventure race all the way to the Cardrona Valley floor! This year, the fun REALLY doesn't stop (because we're staying open for another week), & we're absolutely fizzing to celebrate an epic winter season with this equally epic event.
You can enter on the day in either the solo or teams divisions – race kicks off at 4pm! The Fun Never Stops is a hilarious spectator event so if you're not racing you should definitely stick around to watch all the madness go down...
For the last week of the season we'll be running Spring Camp in Big Bucks park, which means the large triple line will be closed to the public for Spring Camp participants only. There will be features in Stag Lane & Lil' Bucks to keep the froth alive for the last week – you'll be able to access the parks from McDougall's Chondola for one last fix of park riding!
Things to look out for
The team at Captain's Café have organised one heck of a party on Sunday to celebrate the last day of shredding at Captain's Basin. There'll be music, food & drink specials, & they're also hiding a wee friend somewhere in Captain's Basin... the first person to find the gnome & bring him to Captain's Café will win a sweet prize!!
As the season winds down we just want to say a massive thank you to all our Winter 2018 staff – many of them are heading off on other adventures from Monday onwards. The team have made this winter a truly memorable one, so make sure you give them some high fives this weekend!!
Don't forget: our 2019 season passes are on sale at the 2018 rates in our Price Freeze sale – the best rate for a 2019 season pass is right now!
