2015 First Snowfall Contest Winners!
By:  Ingrid Hagberg   (2015/11/24)

After weeks of anticipation, we finally got our first snow! According to Environment Canada, the snow started falling at 1am this morning and stopped at 5am, at which point there was plenty of coverage. 
Plenty of coverage after the sun rose.

This year's winner was… Evan Kealey, with a guess of 11-24-2015 5:21am, which is pretty much bang on! He is extra deserving of the great prize due to his commitment to keep the 2005 XC Ottawa suit alive and well. Evan will win an Exel Backpack, generously donated by Canadian Wintersports. 
FUN FACT: Evan's grandfather was last year's snowfall contest winner and his uncle David won in 2011! Does a 6th sense for snow lie in the family…?

2nd place goes to Steve Kelly, with a guess of 11-24-2015 at 12:32pm. Steve will win a Kama merino wool windstopper hat.

Finally, 3rd place goes to Benjamin Lee, with a guess of 11-23-2015 at 18:23pm. Benjamin will win a Red Creek World cup diamond grind scraper.

Thanks to everyone who entered the contest and to Canadian Wintersports for the generous donation of prizes. Happy skiing!
