Unlike most other festivals, SnowBombing Canada is held at a ski resort, giving attendees the opportunity to hit the slopes all day at Sun Peaks Resort, and then go dance the night away afterwards. Because the festival is held at a resort, the most popular way to purchase a ticket is by purchasing an accommodation package. Hotel packages start at $460 CAD per person, ($342 USD) and include a room for four people at Sun Peaks as well as a festival ticket for each person! Attendees also have the option of adding on a ski lift ticket for $90 CAD ($67 USD) a day or $255 CAD ($190 USD) for 3 days! Equipment can also be added on to packages starting at $60 CAD ($45 USD) a day and $130 CAD ($97 USD) for 3 days!
Sun Peaks Resort has 4,270 acres of terrain including two mountains containing routes of varying difficulties, so that there is something for everyone! Mount Tod is highest mountain at Sun Peaks, with a 9,510ft long chairlift ride, and includes double black diamond routes for those who seek a greater adrenaline rush! Headwalls is another mountain that is very smooth and popular for speed skiing! It is not nearly as steep or as long as Mount Tod, making it a better option for those who are not as experienced. Apart from the two mountains, Sun Peaks also has several terrain parks which contain jumps, rails, and obstacles for those who are looking for a freestyle skiing or snowboarding experience!
