This also includes a tour of the Calgary Olympic Park with Eddie at the end of the week. There’s a few spaces available for anyone who wishes to participate on the trip.
Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards said:
I’m really looking forward to visiting Kicking Horse resort and experiencing the famous terrain on offer there, I’ve heard so much about it and I’ve always wanted to ski there myself. Going back to the Olympic ski jumps in Calgary is going to be really exciting too – it will certainly bring back some memories.
