If you can’t beat winter, then you might as well join in on the snowy fun, at Crowsnest Cando Society’s Wintervention, running from February 22 to 24.

The seventh edition of Wintervention will feature a new event called Crokicurl that will be held at the Crowsnest Lake Rest area.

Some of the other events that are planned for the weekend include a fun run on Saturday at 9:30 am, music and a bonfire at the ski lodge from 10 am to 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday and human dog sled races sponsored by CNP 40Assests and the PPK at the ski hill on Saturday starting at 1:00 pm.

Fundraising Director of Crowsnest Cando Randall Shemko says that he is excited about the weekend and that the group is grateful for the help they’ve received.

“We are really happy that CNP 40Assets took over the human dog sled races and we are pretty excited about Crokicurl. It seems to be generating a lot of interest in the community.”

On of the more popular events of the weekend is the Chili Bowl and Shemko believes that it will be a hit again this year.

This year’s dinner, dance and silent auction will be held at the Elks Hall in Blairmore starting at 5:30 pm on Saturday.

The theme for this year is the fifties and Shemko is very pleased with the current number of tickets sold so far.

“Early on we had some minimum projections of at least 100 tickets to our dinner and dance but now we’re at 140 so I think this is already a success in our eyes.”
