On behalf of the Yellowknife Ski Club Board of Directors, I would like to extend a sincere thank you to the entire ski club community for their support, understanding, and adaptation to public health guidelines throughout these past two years of skiing. We are so pleased that we were able to keep our doors open (although limited) and most importantly to continue to operate all outdoor ski programming! It is no exaggeration to say that each and every member played a role in allowing us to continue functioning. It took all of us to accomplish this, from the main program leads adjusting season plans, to coaches helping children stay distanced, to our tiniest skiers keeping their masks on and having a great ski day, even without hot chocolate! There are truly too many people to thank individually.
With the end of the Northwest Territories public health emergency, the Yellowknife Ski Club is again shifting our policies. During our April board meeting, the directors made a unanimous decision to rescind the Proof of Vaccination requirements and to remove the COVID-19 control plan. It is a big step to remove these tools which have served us so well. What this means is that our capacity and activities within the chalet and outdoor gatherings are no longer restricted, we will not be keeping detailed records of attendance, and members who are unvaccinated can once again access the Chalet and ski programs.
While this is great news, we also want to take this time to strongly recommend continued masking within our facilities as well as healthy respiratory practices. We will also be maintaining our rigorous cleaning protocols of the chalet. We ask that anyone feeling sick, or who has tested positive for COVID-19 to stay home until recovered. COVID-19 is still a reality here in Yellowknife and we want everyone to feel safe and stay healthy as we complete our ski season.
Again, thank you all and if you have any questions or comments please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
