Trails closed, end of season message

Due to today's major rainfall and the forecasted above zero temperatures we will be enjoying this week, we will not be able to keep the trails maintained this week, and most likely, for the rest of the sesaon.

Thank you all for the very good season. We had no freezing rain this year, which made trail maintenance easier. But we started the season late, with a soft wet snowfall which bent a lot of trees and broke hundreds of branches in early January.

Due to the pandemic, we will not have a PAXC annual general meeting (AGM) in April, like as usual. We will postpone it until September, likely. We will let all members know when we will have a firm date.

Thank you to all the volunteers who instructed ski lessons, maintained trails, maintained equipment, and helped out in a multitude of tasks in the executive.

Thank you also to all the visitors who came to enjoy our great trails.

Thanks to all who contributed daily with a donation, which go towards paying for the parking lot maintenance, as well as upkeep of machines and equipment for the trails maintenance. These items cost thousands of dollars yearly.

We hope to see you at the AGM in a few months.

Saturday Mar 21

The Blue, Purple, Red and Orange trails were groomed for skating this morning.  Still lots of snow to ski.  It' too hard to do a new classic track at this point.

The Blue trail was groomed for skating tonight.  No new classic tracks because these conditions are hard to groom.  Thanks to Ted (and Carey) for the grooming.

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.

It is with heavy hearts we share the sad news of the passing of Brian Mottershead. He will always be remembered for countless hours, support and dedication to our community. His involvement was felt by many including the PAXC Ski Club, the cycling community, and the Rapid Ride and Skate Park in Pembroke. Thank you Brian for your tireless dedication and commitment.

The family has asked for donations to go to the PAXC Ski Club. This can be done thru Murphy Funeral Home, e-Transfer to skipaxc@gmail.com or by giving a cheque to one of the PAXC Executive Members.

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.
