Skiers around the province are gearing up for the winter season, after Sun Peaks opened near Kamloops this past weekend.
Sun Peaks was the first resort to open in B.C., and the line up for the first chair was a long one.
Three eager skiers pitched a tent the night before opening day to secure their spot at the front of the line, according to Sun Peaks.
Those in line were treated to coffee and baked goods, as they eagerly waited their turn on the chair.
The season opened with 21 runs and a clear sunny day on the mountain.
In the Okanagan, Big White and Silverstar Mountain Resort are set to open for the season on Nov. 22.
Opening Day is just around the corners!😂 Nine days to be exact.
Pick up your Season Pass by Nov. 22 to take advantage of the Pre-Season rates!
