Prince George, BC – March 18, 2013 – As an extension of the #takeonPG campaign, Tourism Prince George will be hosting a community event at Tabor Mountain Ski Resort on Thursday, March 21st to feature #158 from takeonPG.com. Spring break is in full swing, but the winter conditions on the slopes are as good as they have been all season.
Locals and visitors alike are encouraged to join Tourism Prince George and Olympic Champion Ashleigh McIvor for a fun day on the snow. Tabor Mountain Ski Resort is offering a special deal to all skiers and snowboarders: full day lift tickets will be priced at only $20. Tourism Prince George staff will be on hand with giveaways to engage with locals and encourage them to get involved with the #takeonPG campaign.
Ashleigh McIvor was the first ever gold medallist in women’s ski cross at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games held in Vancouver/Whistler. In addition to her Olympic title, Ashleigh has also taken the top spot at the World Championships and won a silver medal at the X Games. Thursday’s event will provide the chance for Ashleigh to take a test run down the newly constructed ski cross course that was built in advance of the upcoming 2015 Canada Winter Games.
Tabor Mountain Ski Resort is conveniently located 15 minutes east of downtown Prince George. The mountain is open 10:00am-4:00pm every day during spring break to provide ample opportunity for exploring the more than 180 skiable acres.
