This past Wednesday over 150 First Nations and Metis youth from all over the province had an opportunity to ski and have fun with a host of Olympic veterans at the Canmore Nordic Centre thanks to the Ski Fit North program.

Former Olympian and Bow Valley local Beckie Scott is one of the people behind the Ski Fit North initiative.  I spoke with her about it, as well as an instructor from a Metis reserve that has built a popular Nordic ski program from scratch thanks to the program.
