General:
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.
