Project Notice & Open House

PROJECT NOTICE & OPEN HOUSE INVITATION SUMMER ADVENTURE ACTIVITY AREA

KT-90-Soar

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.

Stylish Skiers

Most Stylish Skiers Ever

They were as influential off the slopes as they were on. Introducing the all- time most stylish men’s alpine ski racers.

GOLD – STEIN ERIKSEN

SteinEriksen

The Norwegian-born great is the epitome of skiing style. Even at 87, the Olympic gold medalist – who moved the U.S. shortly after the 1952 Olympics – wines, dines, and smooth talks as the director of skiing at the classy Deer Valley resort in Utah.

SILVER – ALBERTO TOMBA

The Italian, La Bomba, rose to the top of the skiing world as a brash, aggressive skier, with throngs of women waiting in the finish area. Let’s not forget he became the first skier to medal in three different Olympic games and claimed 50 World Cup races.

BRONZE – JEAN-CLAUDE KILLY

Raised in the French Alps, the son of a shop owner learned to ski early, and quickly learned to win. The pinnacle of his career – three gold medals at the 1968 Games – etched this handsome skier into worldwide stardom.

Close to the podium mentions:
Bode Miller, Franz Klammer, Erik Guay, Aksel Lund Svindal, Alexandre Bilodeau
