Grab your skis and boards and join the rippers, park rats, and shredders alike on January 14th, 2017 for National Ski Day — a fun nationwide celebration to celebrate all things ski. Canada boasts some mind-blowing mountain ranges, home to amazing ski resorts. Pack up your gear, get outside, and enjoy the great outdoors!
This year marks the third annual CIBC National Ski Day which supports Canadian Ski Teams across the country. As a child, I grew up skiing on the Nancy Green Ski Team at Mount Seymour in North Vancouver, BC. It was a tremendous experience, one that I hold near and dear to my heart. I went on to be a Ski Instructor for many years in Banff, AB, and while my ski racing days are a thing of the past, I am able to watch the likes of Manuel Osborne-Paradis and Kelsey Serwa and reminisce of our times racing as kids.
Across the nation, this year’s CIBC National Ski Day has 17 participating resorts!
So find a destination close to home, or make a weekend trip out of it. Either way, the forecast is calling for tight lines and pow for days so get out there and rip it up!
