Helly Hansen Big Mountain Battle kicks off Feb. 27

Teams of two will once again battle it out on the slopes of Sun Peaks as the Helly Hansen Big Mountain Battle returns to the B.C. Interior resort on Saturday, Feb. 27.

Each team of two (skiers, snowboarders or mixed) will be racing around Sun Peaks on a course designed by well-known big mountain skier, Chris Davenport. While being tracked by FLAIK GPS devices, teams must cover all of the designated GPS checkpoints, including an inbounds hike! FLAIK GPS provides real time data on each team as they race. Not only monitoring the time and speed of each person, the devise also ensures teammates stay within 200 feet of each other.

Two local Sun Peaks ski instructors dominated the field in 2009, with a time of 2:30:57, and won an all-expense paid trip to Aspen/Snowmass to square off in the final Battle in the Bowls. The 2010 Battle in the Bowls takes place Sunday, March 28.

Beyond the grand prize, there’s tons of swag up for grabs for other participants. The top three teams who complete all checkpoints, the team with the most vertical, and the individual with the fastest climb will all be awarded prizes.

The $75 registration fee per team includes two Helly Hansen Lifa base layers valued at $45 each!
