Grizzly Mountain Events is a small business based in Canmore, Alberta - gateway to the Canadian Rockies.
Grizzly Events (formerly Smith Events) was founded in 2006 by Tony Smith. Since launching the company, Tony has created, managed and directed over 100 multisport events and played host to approximately 30,000 participants and raised well over $200,000 for registered charities and non-profit organizations.
Tony was born in Montreal and grew up in London, England. Upon returning to Canada he lived for several years in Banff, Alberta and quickly realized a passion for the mountains and endurance sports. He is now a proud resident of Canmore and is often called upon to M.C. for local community events including Canada Day Celebrations, Canmore Nordic Festival and Winter Carnival.
