NorAm Race - Canmore Nov 25 and 26

A reminder to people thinking of racing at the first Noram in Canmore Nov 25, 26 that the Rooms at the Windtower (and the decent rate) will be released this Friday.

For younger Biathletes looking for an out-of -province race to try out, the Nor Am 1/Alberta Cup/Calforex race in Canmore Nov 24-26 would be an excellent race to start out with. (or, possibly Westerns in Red Deer in February) We mostly all stay at the Windtower.

To book at the Windtower call 403 609 6600 and mention the Biathlon Saskatchewan Rate and switch the room out of my name into yours (which includes all the bacon that you can eat and parking)

Standard Bedroom $89 (One Queen Bed)

One Bedroom Suite $129 

Two Bedroom Suite $209
