F.I.S. World Snow Day 2019
Snow Valley Ski Club has participated in every World Snow Day celebration since 2012. This season is no different and we’re gearing up for Sunday January 20th. We’ll have lots of things to do including…
A hot chocolate station, a scavenger hunt, family fun races and more! This year, World Snow Day is sponsored by Resolve Physio & Wellness at 23 Fairview Drive in Westbrook
We will also have a demonstration from Parks Canada near the fire pit including roasting apples and more. They’ll also have information on winter activities available at Elk Island National Park!
This global celebration is produced by the Federation Internationale de Ski (F.I.S.). Each year the theme is ‘Bringing Children to the Snow’ and it does. In fact all around Edmonton there are celebrations. Here’s an excerpt from the final report on last year’s event,
“On the 21st January 2018, the seventh edition of World Snow Day took place with 516 events in 44 countries. The seventh edition of World Snow Day was the second largest in the history of the program. FIS Secretary General Sarah Lewis commented, together with the event Organisers we aim to make World Snow Day a memorable success every year for all of the participants.
This is now the fourth time we have had over 500 events, which means that we are reaching an enormous number of snow sports enthusiasts on this one day.””
