Moose Trax brings in Gerry’s Gelati to keep things cool during the summer

Moose Trax in downtown Golden is now serving gelati, from the famous Gerry’s Gelati in Invermere.

Summer is almost here, and this year you won’t have to drive all the way to Invermere for your favourite summer treat.

Moose Trax in downtown Golden is now serving gelati, from the famous Gerry’s Gelati in Invermere.

“I had ice cream last year, but you can get ice cream lots of different places. I just wanted to do something different. And I really like that it’s local,” said Janet Crandall, owner of Moose Trax which is now entering its second summer in business.

“I really like the flavour selection, you can get your standard ice cream flavours. But you can also get some really different ones.”

The specially ordered display freezer arrived at the store on April 23, along with a selection of delicious gelati.

There will be seven flavours in store at all times, and Crandall will be changing up the selection with every order, yet still keep some local favourites, whatever those turn out to be.

“I don’t have a favourite flavour yet, but I really like the sorbets. The mango is great. The raspberry cheesecake is really good too,” said Crandall.

The prices will stay in line with the prices at Gerry’s Gelati in Invermere. One scoop is $3, two scoops is $4.25, and three scoops will be $5.50. It will also be available to take home by the pint.

Soon to come will also be hand made waffle cones and bowls.

“Making the waffle is not the hard part, it’s flicking it off the pan and moulding it into a cone. I’m going to have bandaids on all my fingers, it’s really hot,” joked Crandall.

Moose Trax, located at 101-421 9th Ave. N., is open Sunday to Friday.
