Downtown Throwdown: Banff Snow Gets Dumped on Stephen Ave

  • Stephen Avenue Walk 200 8 Avenue Southwest Calgary, AB, T2P 1B5 Canada (map)

Banff’s Sunshine Village Ski Resort will be hosting their annual Downtown Throwdown - dumping three tonnes of snow straight from the Canadian Rockies onto Stephen Avenue.

“We want to bring the snow from the mountains to downtown Calgary to remind people that there’s still over a month left of skiing (and snowboarding),” said Kendra Scurfield, the media and communications manager of Sunshine Village.

Sunshine Village packs a dump truck full of snow and transports it to Calgary in preparation for the event. Stop by for a taste of the Snow Life. Watch freestyle riders showing off their freestyle skills, get some Rockstar Energy Canada give-a-ways, and high-fives for all!
