XC help

Date(s) - Thu Feb 13 2020
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


No casual drop-in for rest of 2019-20 season but there are always experienced skiers willing to help you improve.
You just have to ask by emailing coordinator at sinup10@canmoreseniors.org and explaining what you need.
For the rest of the season all queries will be dealt with in the course of exploring the trail system.

We may split into a more distance oriented (few-stops) group and a help group (stop as needed and discuss anything relevant to day-touring) if warranted.
