October 2017 – Canadian Masters has NEW team ski suits!!!


Thanks to Wendy Grater, Pat Pearce and Sheila Lenes for their help with this long awaited ski suit project to help organize the design and manufacturing of a new two piece ski suit for our skiers from across Canada!!!

The two piece suit designed in part by Jakroo here in Vancouver BC and support from Fresh Air Experience in Ottawa, Ontario for allowing us to use their swirling maple leaf graphics!  Jon from Fresh Air in Ottawa was very supportive of our association and its goal to keep Masters skiers skiing and racing regardless of age or ability.  If you are in the Ottawa area please drop in and thank Jon and spend a few bucks!

The two piece suit will be available to order with the next few weeks or early November through an on-line store set up for our Association.  The on-line store will be open for three weeks and then all orders will be manufactured for delivery within three weeks to our members across Canada.

Cost is $180.00 for two pieces as well as Provincial sales taxes and delivery.

Sizes will be available from XS to XL with a slim option as well.  We will send out sizing details soon. Some of our BC members will be helping try on a variety of sizes from a Fit Kit so we can have a better idea of proper fits for the wide range of body types.  Top and bottoms can be ordered in different sizes through the on line store!

Pictures of this new design will be uploaded soon onto our Canadian Masters National website and here on BC site!

Lots of good feedback from our Provincial Directors and skiers already and we will look great with this new Jakroo Standard Thor design with 100% Canadian design!

Thanks Again to Fresh Air Experience in Ottawa!

October 18, 2017 – Skiing on Soveriegn trails!

Yes snow has started to accumulate on the upper trails and last weekend saw skiers skiing aprox. 5 kms on classic tracks with a course on repeater trial area system and over towards Paradise Camp trails.

Sovereign Lake Noridc club(SLNC) provided the recent trail setting and could use a $5.00 donation if you ski the tracks to help with fuel costs.  There was talk of setting up a pay box but not sure if that is in place so feel free to drop off $5.00 per skier later in the season at the club or check at Stussi Sports on your way down from skiing.  SLNC members who have paid this season memberships are not required to pay the $5.00 fee.  This is an honour system so please follow up if you ski the trails early.

More snow has started to accumulate on trails as of October 18th and cooler weather and more snow on the way should help to retain the snow.  May be best to call the Sovereign Lake Nordic Center or check their website for any updates.

Remember this is still early season so bring rock skis and variety of waxes or waxless skis.  Great to have this opportunity thanks to SLNC volunteers!
