X marks the spot for geocachers

Treasure hunters take note—more than 75 existing and 30 new caches are out there to find at Sun Peaks.
To celebrate this trove of treasures, the Seek the Peaks Geocaching Weekend will be held at Sun Peaks on July 21 and 22.

Saturday’s geocaching hunt will take place from the top of the Sunburst chair, downward. Over 15 caches will be hidden on the lower mountain, with log books to sign and ballots to grab for chances to win prizes at the wrap-up event.

On Sunday, July 22, geocachers will again meet at the top of the Sunburst chair for coordinates, but will travel upwards in search of over 30 caches on the alpine hiking trails.

Entry is complimentary for these events, but lift passes must be purchased to ride the Sunburst Chairlift, and all participants require their own GPS. An awards evening will follow at Masa’s on Sunday afternoon.
