What to Wear for Specific Events

Comedy Night - March 1st at 8 pm: This is the event that kicks off the weekend, so you’ll want to put your best foot forward. It’s a pretty casual night of good laughs, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress to impress (whatever that means to you personally)!

Pride Mountain Parade - March 2nd at 2:15 pm: This is your chance to show your winter pride, and you’ll definitely want to be prepared for it. Bring your Pride flags to participate!

The Bottoms Après - March 2nd at 3 pm: Come fresh from the slopes or from your sheets if you had a few too many adult beverages the previous. Anything goes at Après.

wipeOUT - March 2nd at 9 pm: This is your chance to go all OUT! With DJ Dopamine and Drag Queens galore - you’ll want to bring your best party gear for this event.

Other Items to Consider...

  • You’ll be on the go throughout the day and late into the night, so you may want to bring a portable charger
  • Bring a winter jacket and boots suitable for snow conditions.  
  • Review the weather forecast and pack appropriately (example: hat, scarf, mitts/gloves, undershirts, long johns)
  • Circuit fans, harnesses, jockstraps
  • Lubricant and condoms
