Consistent with other years the trails are all mowed and ready for action. But there is a big change since last year. Further development work has been done on the trail so that not only will it be a ski trail in the winter but a Nordic walking trail in the summer. This change would not have been possible without the financial commitment by the Rural Municipality of Rocanville of $6,000 for three years.
For the 2020-21 winter season, we were fortunate that cross country skiing allowed us to keep our physical distancing and even with the various COVID protocols everything went quite smoothly. Fortunately we had reasonably good snow conditions and most days it was not too cold. We estimate there were about 2,000 people who used the trail which is more than ever before. We believe the same safety protocols will be required for this year as well.
We are attaching a registration and waiver form to this letter for the 2021-22 year. Please note an Annual Trail Pass will allow you to not only ski during the winter but also allow you to use the trail for Nordic walking during the summer. Rental equipment in the club house is continuing to be provided for cross country skiing as well as several sets of Nordic walking poles for participants to use on the trail during the summer months.
We are in the process of establishing a web site for our club and it is expected that it will be up and running in the near future.
