Yes, snow has fallen in Edmonton already. I’ve heard that it may not be here for long, but it’s definitely time to start planning for the winter months! If you don’t have warm clothing, Mountain Equipment Co-op has reliable clothes that are reasonably-priced.
The main reason for the Snow Fest is to help people learn about the winter season and activities, and to find out about clubs to join. Also, there will be a sale of used winter sports gear, so it’s a good place to get equipped for less money.
MEC is in a convenient location, on 124 Street and 102 Avenue, just north of Jasper. Many city busses stop there. Check it out!
