Let’s go skiing!

Parkland members and guests will be exploring Central Alberta this winter and running beginner day trips out to the mountains, all at no extra cost! Our monthly gatherings, when allowed, will be outdoor ski and campfire fun at local trails the 2nd Tuesday of Jan, Feb and March of 2021.

All meetings and gatherings will make Covid safety measures a 1st priority.

Prepare for a great season with adult ski lessons!
Sign up here for beginner/intermediate or intermediate/master classes

No skis? No problem! River Bend is renting them out daily.

Please let us know what adventures you are enjoying – post to the Parkland Cross Country Ski Club Facebook page!

Everyone is welcome to join us!
