The first of its kind in North America, Skate Sun Peaks presented by LANDYACHTZ and hosted by UNKLE is a Freeride Event at Sun Peaks Mountain Resort with a Ski Lift back to the top!
Skaters will get endless runs down this challenging track with 17 UNIQUE CORNERS 14 YOU WILL DRIFT. The top half is extremely challenging and impossible to do without putting your hands down. The bottom half is less hectic but still requires a lot of drifting to negotiate the tight corners. All ages and skills levels are welcome. Skate Sun Peaks will partner with Sun Peaks Skate Park Foundation and the Kamloops Longboard Club to raise funds and awareness of their missions. The Freeride will be supported by Landyachtz Skateboards from Vancouver BC, Canada.
