Congratulations Team MSM, we WON! An incredible team effort and come from behind victory to capture the $50,000.
We collectively posted 4,200 Instagram photos that captured the spirit of MSM, proving that our little community sure punches above its weight, beating out sixty other Peaks from across Canada. For quick historical reference, you can always visit Instagram and type in #toppeakmontstemarie. The photos should be there forever.
To honour Mackenzie and to thank them for the $50,000, we are officially changing the section of the Dustin Cook run known as "Rock Cut" to the "Mackenzie Cut."
Thank you to Mackenzie Investments for pulling all of us and the country of skiers together. It's been fun. Congratulations to all finalists and especially to Calabogie and Camp Fortune for also reaching the top five. As a consolation, the good news is that the "Mackenzie Cut" will benefit their athletes as well, the region wins.
