We need your help! The Canadian Ski Patrol are celebrating 75 years with a Guinness World Record attempt.
On Saturday, Feb. 6th, Manning is participating in this momentous undertaking to commemorate Canadian Ski Patrol day, by attempting a Guinness World Record for Most People Making Snow Angels.
Ski areas across all of Canada are joining together to make the most snow angels simultaneously for 30 seconds. You and your family are needed to make this World Record!
At Manning Park, the meeting point is at 9:30am by the Twin Tow building, or at the Resort behind the Nordic Centre. Snow angels commence at 10am!
In case you are unsure of the particulars of making your snow angel, Guinness has detailed instructions to follow:
- “Fall gently into the snow onto your back.
- Keep your entire body flat in the snow.
- Brush your arms between your head and waist in a sweeping motion.
- Move your legs apart as far as they will go and then together.
- Repeat these motions (it’s like doing a jumping jack while lying on your back) until you have made indentations in the snow.
- Have someone stand at your feet and pull on your arms to help you up.
Please be aware, that this event will be recorded with photos and video and that by participating, you consent to your photo and/or video being used for evidence, and also for promotional or other publication purposes by Manning Park Resort.
Come down to the Bear’s Den Pub for drink specials, live music and football!
