Baldy Mountain Resort is gearing up to celebrate 50 years of fun with 3 big exciting and innovative new events built on our one-of-a-kind culture.
Baldy will be celebrating the people, powder and parties that built the mountain into what we all know and love today with a 50 Year reunion party in January. February will see the launch of a new event for all of the oenophiles, aficionados and connoisseurs of the great grape with Baldy’s 1st annual Winter Wine Event, showcasing the South Okanagan’s best vintners. Come spring it’s time for the hopheads to have their heyday at Baldy’s 1st annual Craft Beer Event. Throughout our 50th anniversary season we’ll be celebrating everything that makes Baldy BC’s best hidden gem. Family friendly mountain, breathtaking views, incredible views, down-to-earth culture with a relaxed vibe and the most affordable prices in BC.
“There are few places like Baldy Mountain Resort left where the focus is still solely on what’s important: Having fun with family and friends in a spectacular mountain environment,” explained General Manager Andy Foster. “We want to thank all of the Baldy family for their contributions to building what we think is BC’s best hidden gem ski resort, and continue their spirit of celebrating winter mountain culture.”
“We’re truly blessed in the Okanagan to be surrounded by some of the finest wineries and craft breweries in the province and country. This year we’re literally tapping into that incredible culture that surrounds Baldy Mountain Resort and celebrating it with two new events. We’re certain the 1st annual Winter Wine Event, and 1st annual Craft Beer Event will quickly become key parts of Baldy’s half century of skiing lore.”
50th Year Reunion – Saturday, January 26th,2019 more info
From day one of the 1968-69 season when the McKinney T-bar began hauling skiers up our slopes, there has been one constant connecting the past to today, and that’s the unique character and vibe of the Baldy community. Over the past half century there has been a dedicated and passionate crew of locals that have carved a memory making factory out of the side of Baldy Mountain. All season long, we’ll have a series of content celebrating the “People of Baldy,” highlighting the stories behind our favourite lifts and trails. It all culminates with a 50th Year Reunion in the Baldy’s classic lodge in late January.
