Ski season is still a few weeks away(notwithstanding Chuck’s ski trip of Sep 22), but ski blogging season officially starts today, so welcome back!

I hope everyone had an enjoyable summer. If you’ve been reading this blog over the summer, you’ll see that I’ve put my old mountain bike to good use. 

It appears that skiers could enjoy some early-season skiing by going to Medicine Hat and Cypress Hills where there’s a storm warning in effect and 30 cm of snow in the forecast for tomorrow(Oct 2).

Frozen thunder at Canmore Nordic Centre on Oct 22, 2016

Frozen Thunder at the Canmore Nordic Centre opens on Saturday Oct 21, and with any luck, we’ll be skiing on Moraine Lake road at Lake Louise in early November.

CNC Passes 10% off

Individual season passes to the Canmore Nordic Centre are 10% off until the end of October. The season pass is not valid for Frozen Thunder.

Skiing at Emerald Lake on Mar 9, 2017

September and October are the months where I make arrangements with businesses regarding advertising on this blog for the winter. I’m lining up some fun contests where you can win great prizes. 

I’m pleased to say we have Emerald Lake Lodge back for the sixth consecutive winter with their xc skier’s special rate.

In the month of December we’ll be giving away two free nights at Emerald Lake Lodge. 

From Nov 1 to March 31, this blog averages 6,634 visits per day. If you know of a business or organization who wants to reach the xc skiing community, send them to my advertising page, or directly to me bobtruman@shaw.ca

One didn’t have to travel to the hat for snow as their was plenty -about 4′, that blanketed Okotoks today. I couldn’t garden 🙁 so played hooky 😉 & enjoyed part of the afternoon skiing about a 4km loop through fields, natural areas and along pathway ribbons reacquainting my week ankles to a not so graceful stride.
