    Winter Running 101

    As soon as the temps get colder and the snow starts falling people change from running to winter sports like cross country skiing, backcountry and resort skiing and other winter sports.

Our goal with those is to provide you with an honest and realistic opinion of the products we carry here at the store. We carefully curate everything that ends up on our shelves, so there won't be many bad review, but no product is perfect.

    We are well into renovations for our new space at 906 Bow Valley Trail. It’s great to be able to say that 8 days after getting the keys. Scott and Nicole, my brother and sister-in-law came in last minute to help with renovations and we were so thankful to get a big head start and some great knowledge on ‘how tos’ from them.
