A HUGE Thank You to the generous donors who made our much needed Warming Hut upgrade possible.  The Hut now has a new roof, siding and an outdoor fire pit.  The metal cladding was donated by Econospan Structures Corp., the lumber was donated by Scotch Creek Home Hardware and the fire pit materials were purchased through a donation from TNRD Area Director Mel Rothenburger.  Special mention to Woody’s Wholesale Lumber for custom building the incredible benches.

Upcoming Programs & Events

The program consists of six to eight weekly lessons (snow and weather permitting) on Saturdays from 10 – 11 AM, Programs will run January to March. With one adult membership and one child membership (or more, depending on how many kids are signing up for Bunnyrabbits/Jackrabbits), the cost of the program is $25 per child. Included in the program fee is access to equipment (sizes permitting) that is loaned for the duration of the season, at no cost, and returned when the trails close.

The objective is to introduce cross country skiing and the healthy lifestyle associated with it through organized activity and active play. In addition, the program is designed to:

  • Help children develop a positive self-image
  • Be fun
  • Provide children an opportunity to make ski-friends
  • Develop fundamental movement skills
  • Help children develop an awareness and appreciation of our natural environment

Registration opens on October 15. Sign up when you get your memberships.
