While you’re skiing in Lake Louise this weekend, I hope you’ll go to Wilson Mountain Sports and enter the contest to win a pair of Atomic SkinTec skis. No purchase necessary. The manager at Wilson’s, Bill, wants to see if anyone reads this blog so let’s let him know. Just go in and request an entry form, you can say SkierBob sent you.
Peter N, one of our regular trip reporters, tried out a pair of Skintecs last winter and left this comment: “Excellent grip in spring conditions where others required klister. Glide not as good as a well waxed racing ski, but much better than conventional “fish-scale” waxless, and usable over wider range of conditions than zero skis.”

I’ve posted a link to the contest details on the Main Menu under the “Contests” heading.
Wilson’s is selling off last year’s rental gear. If you’re looking for a complete package, you can get started with skis, boots and poles for $179.00. Bill also tells me that “Wilson’s is having an opening weekend special on Swix performance accessories now till Monday.”
