Schnai Dai

Load up the skis and slush pants, it time for another year of Schnai Dai to ring in the spring on Hudson Bay Mountain, April 15

Load up the skis and slush pants, it time for another year of Schnai Dai to ring in the spring on Hudson Bay Mountain.

“This year our theme is ‘Jamaica-me-crazy’,” said events coordinator Erica McGougan. “Also the Rotary is hosting the First Annual Dummy Downhill and are encouraging all the local business to be involved in it.”

Each year Schnai Dai is a crowd pleaser, an event that is on everyone’s calender to close out another successful ski season.

The coveted Slush Cup attracts brave souls from all across the Northwest, attempting to cross the slush puddle atop Hudson Bay Mountain without getting wet. Sumo wrestling, a worm eating competition, face painting and live music will all be on hand to celebrate the last hurrah of the year.

However, for the first time the dummy downhill race will be raising funds for an adaptive ski program right here in Smithers. To provide help to disabled skiers and to ensure they get the full Hudson Bay Mountain experience.


All the Schnai Dai events kick off at 9:30 AM on April 15. For more information call Hudson Bay Mountain at 250-847-2058.
