Movember Man Up Party!

November can get dark, cold and you can get caught up waiting and just dreaming of ski season being in full swing. While you’re waiting to hit the slopes there are some important and fun things going on in November. What are we talking about? Well, it started in Australia, under their November summer sun. It’s called Movember and it was started to raise awarness about men’s health and prostate cancer. There’s a high chance of surviving this cancer if it’s caught early enough. Trouble is, a lot of men opt out of going to the doctor for ‘just a check up’.

The Georgetown Inn is throwing a bash in support of men’s health. In fact, all the Waymarker Men shaved their faces and volunteered to grow a moustache in support of this great cause!

Steam Whistle will be donating a dollar for every pint sold. Other Canmore locals have donated Heli Tours, Dog Sled Tours and other Gift Certificates to be won. Canmore Cabs has donated Free Taxi Rides home.

Head down to The Georgetown Inn Movember 30th to chat about moustaches, mens health and the Grey Cup game with other Mo Brothers like yourself.

25C and sunny – A dam ruins hideaway day perhaps?

Beat the heat today and check out the hidden dam ruins pools and little waterfall today. Excusion #36 in the “Out’n About” guide book, this easy walk that starts up in the Canmore Three Sisters subdivision is sure to be a hit with families with kids of all ages looking for fun day to escape and relax. Take a picnic and go! >DS 

Yo! Nice Week Ahead…

…and shaping up to be a stellar week to get out and enjoy Canmore and area. The ski hills have received a ton of new fluffy POW, as have the x-country trails in and around town. And, if you’re going to be staying in the area this weekend, you might want to take in the Liona Boyd concert at the Cornerstone Theatre this coming Sunday night. Awesome guitarist! Whatever you do, have fun and enjoy these warm, spring-just-around-the-corner, sunny days. >D.

Skate skiing with Cascade Mountain views - can't be beat!

Ice Sculptures and Little Chippers

If you’re in the area this weekend, think about taking a trip up to Lake Louise to either skate on the lake or enjoy a x-country ski on the many track-set trails in the area.  Then, take in the amazing ice sculptures at the beautiful Chateau Lake Louise.  If you’re bringing the kids, let them create their own ice creations during the “Little Chippers” ice festival event. Whatever you do, there’s tons of fresh new snow everywhere and the weather is looking good so get out there! >D

...and lots more to see!
