The annual Snow Valley Ski Swap in support of Snow Valley Ski Club and Snow Valley Racing Association was a huge success. Thanks to all those who consigned and purchased ski and snowboard (equipment and clothing) for helping to raise over $10,000 for each club.
Our local shops also contributed their staff to help with sizing and recommendations. Thank you:
Sundance Ski Shop,
Out of Bounds,
Pacesetter Ski Shoppe and
Track ‘n Trail.
This season is already looking better than last year (weather wise) and we can’t wait to open. Our, fingers crossed, opening day is scheduled for…NOVEMBER 11, 2017!
Special thanks goes to Re/Max for their on going support of Snow Valley by bringing their Balloon and Jumpy castle! Plus Street Eats food truck for their delicious food!
PROJECT NOTICE & OPEN HOUSE INVITATION SUMMER ADVENTURE ACTIVITY AREA
Snow Valley Ski Club plans to develop a Summer Adventure Activity Area that will consist of a recreational aerial rope park structure. This modular structure will be located within the grounds of the Rainbow Valley Campground.
This will be an exciting and unique facility on which participants will make their way through numerous “games” or challenges throughout the entirety of the structure. The “games” will consist of a variety of elements including rope bridges, log ladders, cargo nets, tightropes, climbing walls, wobbly bridges, etc.
This project aligns with the recreational and wellness-based elements of the City of Edmonton’s Vision and Strategic Plan by providing an accessible facility that will encourage healthy and active living as well as provide a connection to nature. It will also enable Snow Valley to fulfill its mission of providing year-round outdoor recreational opportunities for all Edmontonians. This project was included in the City of Edmonton-approved 2012 Snow Valley 10-Year Master Plan.
The structure will measure 30 meters by 30 meters at the base and 15 meters tall. It is anticipated that it will be constructed in May/June, 2017 and will be operational by July, 2017. The construction area will be fenced to ensure the safety of all users of the Whitemud Park area.
Snow Valley will be hosting an informational open house regarding the project on Wednesday, April 27th from 6-8pm in the new Rainbow Valley Campground Chalet. You are cordially invited to attend.
