November 16- 22, 2015.

There's snow!!! And winter has started! The temperatures are now looking like they will stay below zero which is promising that this snow may stay.

Headlamps are mandatory for all athletes. The lights are typically not turned on until later in November. 
Please note: Training times will not change this week as we negotiate between grooming, enough snow to ski on and ensuring everyone has rock skis to ski on. Training places will now all be at the lodge.

Please read your emails in the coming few days for information on the Northern Alberta Ski Camp. I highly recommend attending this two day camp that is being held in Hinton. Stay posted- no official information is out yet. 

Tuesday- we will be skate skiing- bring your boots, poles, warm gear (rock skis if you have any)- we will use the lodge's for those that don't, but there's not enough pairs. We will be focusing on technique as we reap the benefits of snow and rest week, all together.

Thursday- AT LODGE:  skate skiing- again, bring boots, poles, warm gear and your rock skis if you have some.

Saturday- Hinton Ski Camp

Sunday- Hinton Ski Camp

ThursdayAT LODGE: Skate skis for the kids and warm clothing please. It's supposed to be a bit on the chilly side as we haven't acclimatized yet. Don't worry about waxing the skis yet- this will happen on Sunday.

Sunday- Bring your kids skis for another wax lesson with Claire. Your kids will be skate skiing with Davis. You will be encouraged to hot wax the classic set of skis to practice and we will work on kick waxes as well. See you then!
