The Great Canadian Life Project landed on top of old Smokey with Smokey’s Big Weekend.  This weekend was filled with music and dance as Smokey Mountain, Gateway Labrador and the communities of Labrador West welcomed DJ Savory to the stage for 2 nights of hot music in the cool north of Labrador. 


Thursday April 6th, Savory hosted the first Video Dance Party for local youth from 6-9pm.  The following night on Friday April 7th, he delivered another great night pumping out more sick beats for folks 19 yrs and up. Savory is somewhat of a Canadian legend in the DJ world having shared the stage with some of the world’s hottest celebrities including Snoop Dogg, Lil Jon, Pitbull, Kanye West, Pauly D, Ludacris, Far East Movement and Ciara to name a few. In 2010 Savory took home 1st Place in the "Heineken Rock The House DJ Competition". His last award was being voted Faces Magazines dj of the year for 2011 and 2012. He is currently one of the hottest VJ's on the east coast.

On Sunday, April 9th Smokey Mountain was the hot spot for hundreds of families and friends for a free ski day!  Free lift passes, free rentals and perfect temperatures brought out people of all skill levels to hit the slopes and celebrate life in the great white north.  The hill was the place to be, to watch or participate in the Big Air Competition or the Annual Slush Cup.  It was a great day and a fantastic weekend to celebrate this Great Canadian Life!
