February 12 is NWT Ski Day and Costume Ski!
Looking for French coaches!
Bonjour mes chers coachs bilingues, (English follows)
L’activité pourrait durer environ 2 h – 3 h, avec une partie apprentissage des bases et une autre balade à ski par exemple, mais ils sont ouverts aux suggestions quant au déroulement de la session. Ils proposeront ensuite des collations et boissons chaudes aux participants.
Après discussion avec le ski club, il y aurait une disponibilité pour l’organiser le dimanche 5 février prochain. Seriez-vous intéressés pour animer cette activité? N’hésite pas à revenir vers Lisa (en copie) pour tout renseignement complémentaire.
The activity could last about 2 – 3 hours. During the first half, the participants will learn the basics and during the other half, they can go for a ski on the trails, for example, but the organizers are open to suggestions as to how the session should be run. They will then offer snacks and hot drinks to the participants.
After discussion with the ski club, this activity could possibly be run on Sunday, February 5th. Would you be interested in leading this activity? Don’t hesitate to communicate with Lisa (cc’d) for any further information.
