Slush Cup Marks the End of the Ski Season for 2024 at Alberta’s Sunshine Village


It might not seem like it is possible, but today is the last day of the season at Sunshine Village for the 2024 Ski Season.

The end of the season at Sunshine is marked by the annual Slush Cup.

The season for skiing will end today likely with snow flurries as this morning it is a mere +1 in Banff.

The Slush Cup is a tradition at Sunshine.

Held each year on the last day of the season, Slush Cup is a competition where participants ski or snowboard down a run into an icy pool of water. The aim is to skim across the pool until you’ve reached the end.
