CIPlogo(Colour)More fun and more funds raised.  That was the call of the day on May 29th at Jagare Ridge Golf Course.  We raised just over $10, 000 for Snow Valley’s Community Initiative Program on a nice Friday afternoon.  The real encouragement came from golfers who appreciated:

  • + The 3:30 pm start
  • + 9 Hole Fun Golf Format
  • + Short live auction with a super steak dinner
  • + done by 8:00 pm!

Another season passes and thousands of school kids (20,000+) have received at least one lesson and hundreds of disadvantage youth and new Canadians (over 1200) have discovered the thrill of riding down a slope and embracing the environment in which they live.

Thank you Edmonton and alpine enthusiasts of all walks of life for another successful season at the foot of the Whitemud Creek in the winter oasis we call Snow Valley Ski Club.

See you next season – and don’t forget about Skis’n Tees 9 Hole Charity Golf Tournament and Live Auction, May 29th at Jagare Ridge Golf Course.

Excellent Conditions Despite Wonky Weather

Snow Valley has experienced some strange weather in it’s 66 years but this year has to stand out as one of the weirdest.

We’ve had heat, rain, snow and sub arctic cold.   And that was just last week!  All kidding aside the variance in the weather can be challenging for us to get around but it’s not that bad on the slopes.

Conditions of the snow vary with the temperature and humidity.  That, however, should not prevent you from enjoying the experience of riding the slopes on skis and or snowboards.  The key to survival is layering and it’s not new.

Begin with a base layer, a mid layer then a top layer.  What has changed are the materials and therefore the number of layers has also changed.  Where wool was once king, breathable man-made fabrics rule the roost.  Thin materials that are also much lighter.

Your equipment should also be checked at the conditions change, as well.  It’s important to keep an eye on edges, bindings, boots, helmets along with mitts and snow pants.

This is winter in Alberta, weirder than most this season, but winter just the same.

So get out there, grit your teeth and embrace the outdoors in comfort!
