The culinary team at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel are real rock stars this week.
Ron and Pam from the Canmore Improv Association joined me on air this morning for some laughs!
Melissa Woodcock is the new coordinator for artsPeak in Canmore and she popped by to give us a sneak peak at this year’s event, held in conjunction with Alberta Culture Days September 26th – 28th. Right now their most pressing need is volunteers – she says they’d love for local lovers of the arts to come out and make this event successful.
Interested in helping out? Email Melissa at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also check out the Mountain Arts Foundation Facebook page for updates and artsPeak event announcements.
Bow Valley Wolverines head coach (and Mountain FM sales guy) Gord Elser popped into the control room this morning to let us know the latest Bow Valley Wolverines news. He invited everyone to watch the Wolverines exhibition game at 4pm Friday at Millennium Park, updated us on the selection process for their new QB, and appealed for a little help in the athletic training department.
Would you like to help the team as an Athletic Trainer? Volunteer for another area? Or maybe you or your kid wants to play high school football next year? Give Gord a shout at 403-678-2222.

Tea Time is a new TV show idea from producer Joanne Levenick – exploring unique tea houses and their surrounding communities all over the world. It was only natural that the beautiful backdrop and interesting story behind the Plain of Six Glaciers Tea House in Lake Louise would be the first one profiled in the demo version of the pilot.
Cookbook authors Linda Whitworth and Pat Inglis will be in Canmore on Saturday discussing their work Go Barley: Modern Recipies for an Ancient Grain. They tell me about this often overlooked ingredient and give some examples of how it can be used in meals from breakfast to dessert.
Stop by Cafe Books in Canmore between 3-5pm Saturday to meet the authors and pick up your copy.
As a new weekly feature on Mountain FM, Pete from bikepirate will be joining us on the show Fridays to give us a weekend update for cyclists, discussing current conditions and giving a few trail recommendations.
If you’re a local cyclist you should definitely check out bikepirate for great descriptions and difficulty information for Bow Valley trails and current user-generated trail reports.
