The Racing Team and Salomon Canada are proud to announce the winners of this year's Skinny Ski Story contest. Over 30 stories were submitted by kids aged five to thirteen, from across Canada. The judges had a very fun time reading the different versions of how cross country skiing was invented. They were very impressed with the creativity of each and every story! The winning stories will be posted on and over the next two weeks! Thank you to Shayla Swanson, Erik Carleton, Gordon Jewett, Sara Renner and Rhonda Sandau for judging all of the stories. Visit next fall to find out about the 2005 Skinny Ski Story Contest.
