What we'll do
Join me for a day of skiing (Classic or Skating) at the Canmore Nordic Centre. This will be a ski at your own pace event, or if you wish, you can pair up with other participants. Please note that I will not be organizing groups of skiers.

Also please note that I am a volunteer organizer. I am not a guide or a ski instructor.

After a morning ski, we will meet up for lunch in the Nordic Centre lodge at approx. 12:00 noon if you wish to join us for a quick lunch (optional) and then head back out for another ski before we leave the venue by 2:30 pm. Please be changed and have your gear ready to leave at 2:30 pm at the latest. We should arrive back in Calgary before 4:00 pm.

Important Note: The primary reasons for this meet-up are to be more sustainable by having fewer cars on the highway, being able to share the gas expense and to meet new people. The organizer will arrange the carpooling on the day of the meet-up to ensure we can meet these goals. The only meet-up point is Dalhousie CTrain Station. If you do not plan on joining the carpool, please do not RSVP to this event as we do not have a meet-up point in Canmore. When responding, please ensure that you indicate if you can drive or will be a passenger.

Remember, trail fees are in effect for the Canmore Nordic Centre. If you dont have an annual pass, you will need to purchase a day pass at the centre. The rate is $15/day for adults. Seniors over 55 are $11.25.

If you dont have your own equipment, there are various places in Calgary that rent equipment and Trail Sports at the Nordic Centre also has rentals available.

Note: a minimum of 3 participants will be required to go ahead with this event.

Difficulty: All levels are welcome as this is a ski at your own pace event.

What to Bring: Lunch, trail fees and gas contribution.

Contact Information: If you need to contact me, you can reach me through the meetup app.

Gas Contribution: $15.00 per person payable to the driver on your arrival back in the city.

Carpool Departs At: 8:00 am sharp. Please arrive 10 minutes early to allow time to coordinate the carpooling.

Safety Precaution: If the forecast temperature for Canmore is less than -18 degrees, or if the highway conditions are unfavourable, for safety reasons, there is the potential for this event to be cancelled. I will endeavour to update the site by 7:00 pm the night before if the decision is made to cancel the event, however, please check again on the morning of the event.

Waivers: I will bring the group waiver form with me to the Calgary Meetup location. You must sign it before you will be allowed to go on this event. You will also be asked for the name and phone number of an emergency contact. Please come prepared with this information and review the attached link before you arrive.
