Winter Dominates Haywood Eastern Canadian Championship-Ontario Cup #4 at Sherbrooke Quebec

It was Mother Nature that took over the competition this past weekend! On Friday in the Sprints Free Technique skiers had to deal with about 10-15cm of snow on the ground & blowing winds! It looked more like 5 pin bowling at times. Huge number of skiers going down because of tips being caught in the snow. It turned out that whoever went out first in each heat had the best outcome.  On Saturday's classic technique it was the howling wind & then Sunday's Free Technique Pursuit it was the deep cold. Races had to be delayed one hour.  But then the sun came out & the weekend finished on a great note!

Most trails were groomed for skate and classic this morning. See ski school note below.

Ski School Cold Weather Advisory - February 8th (Classes Running) 

It's chilly but the sun is shining! With the appropriate precautions we can make the most of this beautiful crisp winter day. Coaches will be adjusting lesson plans to stay close to the cabin and class times may be shortened depending on windchill and our ability to stay warm. Parents, please make sure kids are dressed appropriately for cold weather. This means kids need to cover exposed skin (ski masks, buffs, balaclavas, scarves), proper mitts, and layers of clothing. You can even create boot covers using large wool socks by cutting the tips off to allow for the binding. Hand/foot warmers are also a great idea!

Although we do hope to see everyone on the trails this afternoon, please use your discretion as to whether you wish your child to participate in these cold temperatures. If we don't see you this week, we look forward to seeing you next week for our family fun day.

January 25th - Ski School Classes Cancelled for Today

As much as we love to ski and are looking forward to our second week of classes, the freezing rain warning affecting most of our region this morning into the afternoon presents unsafe conditions both on the trails and driving to/from. Due to this extreme weather, we have cancelled ski school for this week and look forward to seeing everyone back on the trails for Saturday, February 1st.

To make up for this 2nd lost week, we have altered our planned Ski School Schedule to include classes on the Family Day Weekend (Saturday, February 15th). This class will be a fun day in which we will have a series of special activities planned and parents are encourage to participate! Stay tuned for more details.
