Adult Ski Lessons, NWT Ski Day and more!

In case you missed it, the Yellowknife Ski Club was buzzing with activity this past weekend, where you could have spotted Care Bears, Mr. Incredible, Harry Potter, Raggedy Ann, Batgirl plus others out for a ski! This is of course all because the YKSC hosted an All-Ages Costume Ski Event and there was a Learn to Train Coaching workshop as well.   

Here are some photos that capture the fun activities that took place last weekend at the Club:

Frostbite 50 March 19!

This year’s Frostbite 50 is scheduled for Saturday, March 19th, and they’re on the lookout for volunteers to make the day a huge success!

Many different roles are needed including lots of people throughout the day at check-stops, people willing to cheer their friends and family on to support their endurance efforts! For those early birds, there’s also support needed before the event!

Check out our volunteer website for more details or reach out directly by email to sign-up as a volunteer today

That is all for this week! We hope to see you out on the trail!

Happy Skiing!!
