Parkland crazy mare ski and biathlon
This Brand NEW new ski and biathlon program for youth has begun! For young skiers aged 4-13, we coach both classic skiing and skate technique for biathlon. We follow the Cross Country Canada Jackrabbit program for skiing, and a brand new biathlon training program that we are developing in partnership with Biathlon Canada!
Skis, boots and poles provided! PROGRAM PAGE HERE
We have already started dryland (hiking, games, and fun stuff!) If there still isn’t snow after the Thanksgiving holiday we’ll begin with a scavenger hunt! Our location is 5 mins outside Devon on over ¼ section of groomed rolling trails.

Through partnerships with local landowners, we have a new location just a couple minutes North of Devon with over a ¼ section of rolling hills and trails. The team has been mowing and maintaining trails, and we have over 5km of good rolling trails, flats, and climbs, free of buildings, obstacles and roads, with room for many more km’s of trails.
Several of the coaches from the former Bears will be joining us, including Mike Tousignant, who competed for Canada in Biathlon as a Junior. We also have the Crazy Mare husband & wife team of Kevin and Ntala Quintilio guiding our program, both of who competed at the Olympics in Biathlon, and at least two former Bears athletes with multiple race wins and Provincial championships to their names. Through our corporate partners, and relationships with the UofA Ski Team, the Camrose Vikings, Edmonton Nordic, and Crazy Mare Ranch Biathlon, we are able to offer many opportunities to the kids, as well as a solid future with these teams once the kids outgrow us.
