Bike Now Ski Later

How many places can you mountain bike one day and snow ski the next, or vice versa!.

Our story starts in Fish Creek Park, Calgary. Ian and I parked at Glenfield as we often do, outside the gates in case we don’t get back before 6pm, and rode to the west end of the park and back. It became dark while we were still on the trails, which only added to the excitement!


Next day, it was off to Canada Olympic park.


In typical friendly Calgary behavior, there were no shortage of volunteers to help with photo taking,


and Red Bull provided the apres-ski refreshments.



Calgary COP

We made it to Dec 12 this year with only one snow storm so cycling has been great, but snow has arrived and it’s winter time now. My daughter and I had great fun taking snowboard and ski lessons last year at Calgary’s Canada Olympic Park, and this year we purchased a family pass. Our first day out was Dec 7 – a monumentally snowy day!
