2013 First Snowfall Contest Winners!
By:  Holly Jones   (2013/11/15)

All you skier/part-time meteorologists can ease off on the predictions, because the weekend of November 9th-10th marked the first snowfall in the 2013-2014 season, and thus, the end of XC Ottawa's 2013 Snowfall Contest. The flakes were flying in Ottawa early afternoon on Saturday, November 9th, and by 4:30PM our XC Ottawa Chelsea webcam registered complete coverage! It was a white and fluffy end to a fantastic contest.

Huge thanks are due to all of our participants, organizers and sponsors. We had over 100 contest entries this year! Congratulations to our three prize winners, Barb Hesk, Mike Vanderveer and Steve Konkle.

CONTEST WINNER: Barb Hesk, with a guess of 11/09/13 at 09:30, November 9th at 9:30AM.

Barb takes home a sweet pair of Rudy Project sunglasses, perfect for shielding the eyes on those sunny/snowy ski days. Looking slick!

RUNNER UP: Mike Vanderveer with a guess of 11/10/13 at 01:15, November 10th at 1:30AM.

Mike wins an awesome Louis Garneau ski bag!

DRAW PRIZE: Steve Konkle!

Steve wins a box of delicious CLIF Bars, ideal for snack breaks on skis!

Our team had been out doing intensity on rollerskis just hours earlier, but by 9PM Saturday, there were some serious snowman-making opportunities. Luckily the group was able to get out first thing Sunday morning to enjoy the fruits of Jack Frost's labour.

Ingrid, the ski model of the day, chillin' on the newly fallen parkway snow. Did you get out skiing for the first snowfall? Send us a picture!

Thank you again to everyone for their contest entries and for helping to make this another wildly successful snowfall contest. Keep up the snow dancing!
