Track N Trail is a locally owned and operated family ski shop found on Whyte Ave. They have been a staunch supporter of cross country skiing in Northern Alberta for almost 25 years and is a main sponsor for ENSC.
Open since 1984, Bob Schilf started Track N Trail with his father, Horst, when Bob was finishing his Bachelor’s degree at the University of Alberta. Track N Trail’s initial focus was always on being a successful Nordic ski shop, as Bob and his father were both avid cross country skiers. They brought that passion for the sport to their little shop on Whyte Ave. That passion was further refined after numerous visits overseas to the Fischer factory. Track N Trail prides itself on being northern Alberta’s first Fischer Race Centre, a designation given to stores that demonstrated commitment and longevity to the sport at all levels. Track N Trail believes in establishing links with the ski community at large through active sponsorships with young athletes, many of whom have gone on to enjoy national and international success as skiers, as well as supporting local events and clubs.
Today, Track N Trail is managed by Bob’s son, Aron, and they’ve expanded their business to more general outdoor pursuits such as climbing, hiking and trail running, but at the end of the day, they still strive to be Edmonton’s premiere ski shop for cross country skiers of all skill levels and ages.
