Happy Love Month

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.

An Inspiring Company Called Rocky Mountain Adaptive Sports Centre

The RMASC is actively helping everyone realize they have no limits when it comes to outdoor adventure in the Bow Valley. The RMASC participants completed the Triple Crown of Canmore last summer – a hiking challenege comissioned by Waymarker Hospitality and The Georgetown Inn which challenges hikers to complete the East End of Rundle, Ha Ling Peak and Mount Lady Macdonald in just one summer. They must post a photo of themselves at each peak on The Georgetown Inn Facebook Page to claim their complimentary beer glass that is refillable for a discount at The Georgetown Inn Pub and a T Shirt! Way to go RMASC. Click Here to watch their inspiring video.

Canmore in November

Canmore is always quiet this time of year. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing going on or nothing to do! The Banff Hot Springs is always a great place to visit – and this time of year there won’t be a line! Thanks to the early snow some ski hills like Naksika and Norquay are opening a few runs early. Sure you won’t be knee deep in powder but you’ll get a leg up on the competition! And sometimes, it’s just nicer when the town is quiet. The Georgetown Inn is featuring a Date Night at The Pub for a reduced rate and the Silver Creek Lodge offers Girls GetAway nights. Get out of the city and Experience Canmore in the mountains this November. You get all the benefits of a mountain experience at lower rates and a quiet escape from work and everyday life.

Johnston Canyon Photo Ops

It was a great day to visit Johnston Canyon today. The water flow is amazing, the crowds still relatively light and the weekend might be your last opportunity to enjoy it before the summer season starts in full swing. See you Out’n About! >DS

Join the Bike Ride Tribute from Canmore to Banff this Sunday

Canmore is hosting the 8th annual bike ride in memory of Isabelle Dube — a Canmore local who’s tragic death prompted an annual cycle tribute in her honour. Dube was an avid cyclist who competed in endurance races such as the World Solo 24 Hours of Adrenaline Championships and the TransRockies Challenge race.  Cyclists will meet in the Canmore Public Library parking lot this Sunday June 3rd at noon. The route goes through the streets of Canmore, continues through Harvey Heights, and heads into Banff via the new Legacy trail. Participants will finish at the gazebo in Banff Central Park. RCMP will be escorting the bicyclers the entire ride. Don’t have a bike? You can rent one at Trail Sports up at the Nordic Centre or down at Gear Up on Bow Valley Trail. Meet new friends and enjoy the Legacy Trail – one of our “must-do” Banff/Canmore excursions!

New Gallery in Town!

A unique approach, the new Carter-Ryan gallery at 705 Main Street in Canmore is a terrific addition to our art gallery offerings. Drop in and meet Jason Carter, acclaimed soapstone carver and painter. ‘Bold’ and ‘brilliant’ are two words that have often been used to describe Jason’s work, and I agree. The gallery is different in that it hosts live music and cabaret style shows. You can also see live art demonstrations on weekends.  See their website for their current New York city cabaret-style piano show entitled “Stand Up and Sing” running nightly through April 7th. To book a reservation go to their website – carter-ryan.com. >D.

See Jason Carter at his "KONA (Cree) SNOW" exhibition


Spring? Really??

As another day of snow piles up in the mountains I must extend my most sincere condolences for those of you who live out east (I’m an ex-Ontario gal myself – learned to ski at Georgian Peaks).  Really people, it’s time to book your holiday to Canmore and take advantage of our 40+ year record snowfalls.  Sunshine Village for example reports ALL TIME SNOWFALL RECORD 908cm (30ft), YTD SNOWFALL 877cm (28ft) 31cm (12in) TO GO!! Lake Louise, Nakiska and Mt. Norquay are also in stellar shape for a spring ski trip.

So no excuses. Get on out here…

… and, bring a friend… >D
