Winter is Coming! Ski Swap Success

Thank you to all the volunteers that made the Canmore and Banff Ski Swaps possible.  Many kids, parents, new and old residents got some great deals, and are now ready to shred this season.  Special mention to Canadian Rockies Public Schools that allowed us to host the Swap in 2 great locations.  Some gear that was donated is now at the Re-Use It Centre in Banff Industrial Area.  Lots of kids boots, some adult boots, poles and helmets.

Thank you to the retailers that attended the past 2 weekends.  Techno Sport, Ski West, Sports Experts, Monod Sports, Obermeyer & Head, Snowtips, Technica/Blizzard, Ultimate Ski and Ride, Abominable Sports, Panorama Mountain Resort and our home hill Mt.Norquay Ski Resort.

We still have a few spots left in Bow Valley Quikies Ski Programs – 1day and 2day a week options. Contact us if you are interested, or register at:
