Stormy day update; New contest


Rare sighting of a Pisten-Bully on Tramline at Lake Louise

I’m pretty sure I know where I’ll be tomorrow. The Banff trail report indicates that Goat creek was trackset today. If memory serves me, we had about a one-week window where conditions
were good in early December, then the meltdown / needlemania / ice storm came.

The forecast is calling for 2 cm of snow tonight, so I’m encouraging you to arrive at Goat creek early and enjoy that fresh snow.

Thanks to Ken Hewitt for the prompt Groomer’s Reports regarding the NorAm race course at Lake Louise. If you’re planning on skiing at Lake Louise between now and Jan 15, keep your eye on these updates.

It’s been a blustery day in Canmore with snow, blowing snow, and a temperature hovering around -14°C. I imagine the only people skiing today are Chuck, and maybe Helen.

From the looks of the forecast, the snowfall is almost over. I got about 5 – 6 cm here in Canmore, but I heard Calgary received over 10 cm. Hopefully that will translate into some golf course skiing and improved conditions at West Bragg Creek.

This will be a good time to announce the annual Lifesport “Win a Home Waxing Set-up” contest. This year, we’re doing it a little different:

Win! Home waxing set-up from LifesportEnter in person at Lifesport. No purchase necessary!

Wax contest

Not exactly as illustrated.

Lifesport is at 1110 Gladstone Rd NW, Calgary. That’s in the Kensington area. 

Now here’s your chance to set up your own home waxing system for free, courtesy of  Lifesport.

Many skiers have experienced the frustration of having glide wax which was too slow during very cold weather, with the feeling that you were skiing on sandpaper. If you had your own waxing set-up, it would have been easy to apply some green wax for cold weather and you’d be cruising along on that cold snow.

A regular hot-waxing makes your skis last longer, too.

The photo is my set-up and is not exactly the same gear that you’ll be getting. Yours will be new!

The following is included: 

  • Swix table, form and iron
  • brush
  • scrapers for groove and base 
  • glidewax.

Entry deadline is Friday, Jan 30, 2015 at store closing. Draw will be made on Sat Jan 31, 2015.

Enter in person at Lifesport. No purchase necessary.
