Wax on, wax off

Olaus Jeldness gets a shine in preparation for the Spirit of Red Society’s Snow Dance on Saturday, Nov. 9.

World class sand and ice sculptor Peter Vogelaar of Winlaw puts a shine on Olaus Jeldness on Columbia Avenue in preparation for the Spirit of Red Society’s Snow Dance on Saturday, Nov. 9.

Olaus did need a buffing as he does need to look dapper for the upcoming dance, said Roly Worsfold The Spirit of Red Society has organized the fun event for a few years to appease the snow god, Ullr, therefore ensuring a good ski season.

The society has managed to secure the award winning band Shred Kelly for the Snow Dance on Saturday, Nov. 9 (8 p.m.) at the Miners’ Union Hall.

“As Ullr will be watching it is imperative that we have a full house,” said Worsfold.

Advanced tickets are $20 and are available at The Grind or Mountain Town Properties.
