There is a lot going on in Canmore this March and I am excited! I hope my product picks will get you excited as well. The Master’s World Cup Cross Country Ski Competition is being held March 3–11. This event reminds me of the role winter sport plays in the Bow Valley’s history and present day. March is also Women’s History Month—there are so many incredible women who have helped shape this community. I hope my picks will help you learn and engage this month.
