The ZiZU Name

Our name comes from the Finnish word sisu and its meaning embodies the essence of racing and sport. Translated, it can mean perseverance, grit, and guts. It is that word shouted in every language at every race in the world: Go!  We like to think this word also describes us.

Our Sunglasses

ZiZU Optics are designed with the athlete in mind. Whether you are a weekend warrior or member of Team Canada. ZiZU Optics are the result of seeing the good the bad and the ugly of the sunglasses industry and developing a product that leaves out all the bad and ugly. We are pleased to introduce you to our line of eyewear which have been carefully designed and manufactured for performance and durability.

Our Promise

ZiZU Optics is committed to providing high quality eyewear to serious athletes at affordable prices. Moreover, we have focused on overcoming the weaknesses in sunglass performance that athletes have been enduring for years. Based on feedback from elite athletes, painstaking measures have been taken to develop eyewear which meet the highest standards required and pursued by podium athletes of all sports. We promise that you will be delighted by the quality, fit and overall performance of your ZiZU Optics eyewear.

ZiZU Optics – Durable, Dynamic, Inspiring ‚Äď Just like you.

FAQs – Snowmaking At Goldbar

FAQs Р Snowmaking At Goldbar
When will ENSC start snowmaking for the 2017/2018 season?
Most years we expect to begin snowmaking after the Remembrance Day weekend once there is a prolonged cold spell of weather (10 or more very cold days with suitable relative humidity levels). It looks like we will be starting earlier this year, possibly firing things up this Monday.
How long will it take to complete making snow for the trails?
It can take as much as about 240 hours of the snowmaking gun in operation to cover all the trails with a depth of snow suitable for grooming. Currently ENSC has only one gun, so the process takes quite a while.
Which trails have snowmaking?
The Lake Loop and 50th Street Loop.
Which trails rely on natural snow?
Capilano, Woodcutters, Esso Hill, Creek Crossing Loop and Goldstick trails.
Can we ski when the snowmaking is operational?
Great caution is needed when skiing near any areas where the equipment is running. These areas should be avoided.

2017 Ski Swap tomorrow November 5th

Come to the annual ski swap this Sunday November 5th at Goldstick Pavillion between 11am and 3:30pm.
