Created by SilverStar Mountain Resort, the first-ever Seismic Mountain Festival will feature well-known professional athletes, some of the provinces best chefs, multiple sporting events with more than $50,000 up for grabs in cash and prizes, LED lit igloo tasting events and plenty of live music.

“This is our first year putting on a festival of this size and so far the feedback we’ve received has been nothing but positive,” said Ian Jenkins, Director of Sales and Marketing for the resort. “There will be feature events that are perfect for the whole family, it’s a festival that’s really meant for everyone to enjoy.

The spring mountain festival is meant to bring together everyone from sport, business, art, culture, and the community to experience unforgettable moments on the slopes before the winter ski season comes to an end in early April. There will be music, beer gardens, art, entertainment and a firework show over the course of the festival.

“We have some extremely unique and fun things planned, that we are certain the community is going to be very excited about.”
