The 21st annual Calgary Snow Show returns to Stampede Park in November. Visitors to the show can have a chance to win three days of catskiing, a full season condo rental and season passes, or a Banff National Park getaway.
The show features booths from ski resorts, retail outlets, gear manufacturers, and the Calgary Ski and Board Swap, put on by the Alberta Freestyle Skiing Association. The association also plans to host a rail jam demo.
Big Red Cats will again be hosting their transceiver hunt. The winner will receive three days of catskiing with the Rossland, B.C. company.
Two prize giveaways include a Banff National Park getaway and a season package at Panorama. The Banff getaway includes three nights of accommodations and two days of skiing at Sunshine Village, plus a sled dog tour, Broadway Series theatre show, and passes to Banff Upper Hot Springs and the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies. The grand prize giveaway from Panorama Mountain Village includes a full season condo rental and season passes for two.
The show is scheduled to run Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in BMO Centre, formerly known as Roundup Centre, in Stampede Park. Visitors to the event receive free opening day lift tickets for Big White and Silver Star.
