The snow angel record in the Guinness book of world records is huge. Last year almost 16,000 snow angels were made in the effort. The Canadian Ski Patrol hoped to break that and so they declared February 3rd snow angel day.

It couldn’t have been a colder day but volunteers showed up to lend their support to the local ski patrol with 54 snow angels  helping in the attempt to  break the record. Ski patrols right across Canada organized the event so these were all done at the same time.

All participants registered through the ski patrol. Members were on hand along with volunteers to help with the event. After making the angels, participants headed to Smokey Mountain ski lodge to help themselves to hot chocolate and Smokey cookies. Participants who weren’t a member of Smokey received certified for a free a free rental and day pass.

Did they break the record? Unfortunately, no. That honour went to the London District Catholic School Board in Ontario who now have the record with 15851 snow angels which was set many years ago.

Nevertheless the local ski Patrol thanks all those who helped and participated. Will they be back next year? Does it snow in January in Labrador? You guess the answer.
