|Volunteers from The Calgary Stampede|
The volunteers from the Calgary Stampede are here to promote the 100th anniversary of the Calgary Stampede, held in July (of course) Calgary.
|Harry the Horse|
We met "Harry the Horse" wandering through the village. He is the official mascot of the Stampede.
|Ride 'em Cowboy!!!!|
|Rope that pig!|
Yes, we actually took the afternoon of from skiing.
All the festivities were too much to resist.
With all the new snow, our legs needed a break. Bob and I both have powder skis. Yes, another pair... How the story goes, Bob purchased a new pair and was so impressed how they handled in the deep powder, he suggested I try them out. "I don't think so...If I like them, you know what will happen!" Well, I am the proud owner (again) of a new pair of skis. They are fabulous! Skiing a big mountain in various conditions, it is recommended to have 2 pair of skis. Ski bums habitually collect skis..... WE are adjusting to the ski bum society. Long hair.....Long underwear......Long, Fat skis.
|Barry, up to his knees|
The fun begins in the powder with our new sticks. I have the ladies version of Bob's S7 Rossignol. Both pairs are 168cm in length. They float on the snow as we glide down the hill.
|Bob & Mike looking for new tracks...and found them!!!|
|Lots of snow to be found|
|A new avalanche .......more to come as the snow falls|
