Calgary Ski Mountaineering Club Announcement!
Want to get into the sport of competitive ski mountaineering, practice with your touring gear or simply want a great winter workout? Come out and ski with everyone from first timers to members of Canada's National Team!
Starting January 1st 2015, we will be hosting a Thursday night workout at 6:00pm at Canada Olympic Park. This will give you an opportunity to get out and ski during the week, an improve your fitness and technique. The organizers (Travis and Kylee) are both certified personal trainers, and will have a suggested workout, as well as being around to help with any technique or gear questions you might have!
We will be organizing Thursday training nights through meetup.com, a great way to see the calendar of events, RSVP, and connect with other members. You can sign up here: www.meetup.com/Calgary-Ski-Mountaineering-Club We are asking for a voluntary $5 membership donation to help cover website fees, but don't feel obligated.
Anyone is welcome to participate, but it is suggested you have a base level of fitness to participate. If you can run a 5k, you can do a skimo race!
All you need is a pair of backcountry skis with an alpine touring binding. If you don't have a set, you can rent from a few different places:
To use the hill at COP, everyone will need a cross country pass. You can purchase a 4 hour pass for $17 for adults, $14 for teens, or get a seasons pass for $188/$156
