March Madness on the Festival and Ski Circuits
There’s a buzz on the ski hills, spreading outwards to other outdoor live venues and festivals as we break into spring in Western Canada. Live music, sun and snow make a killer party combo, for our own northern version of March Madness.
Many ski resorts send off the final weeks of the ski season with a major bang: slush cups, bathtub races, and Hawaiin themed ski days. We have pulled together some epic events from across Alberta and British Columbia to help you satiate your spring fever with music, skiing and more.
So get your festival friends on the phone and load up the car because we are taking you from the mountainous kootenays all the way to downtown Edmonton and so many more sweet places with these five spring festivals!
