September 1, 2021 – The organizers of the 2021 Calgary New & Used Ski sale, scheduled for October 22 – 24, have very reluctantly chosen to cancel the sale due to increasing COVID-19-related safety concerns and venue-related logistical challenges.
The health of our patrons, consigners and volunteers is always the No. 1 priority of the event, which since 1963 has been organized and held as a key fundraiser by three Calgary non-profit charitable clubs; the Calgary Ski Club, the Canadian Ski Patrol – Calgary Zone, and the Lake Louise Ski Club. The recent sharp increase in COVID-19 infections and rising uncertainty about what measures might have to be in place or prudently should be in place to protect our patrons and volunteers, including attendance limitations and distancing requirements, created unacceptable risk.
Additionally, organizers were grappling with utilizing an unfamiliar venue after the City of Calgary announced in June our home of 20 years, the Max Bell Centre, would be closed for renovations until 2022. Based on potential health concerns, attendance concerns and logistical challenges, the organizers concluded that cancelling the 2021 event was the prudent thing to do. The decision followed announcements of cancellations involving similar events in Toronto and Quebec.
Organizers are now turning their attention to planning for the 2022 Calgary New & Used Ski Sale, which will be held October 28 to 30, 2022, with consignment on the evenings of October 26 and 27.
