The 9th annual ski trip to Highlands Nordic (http://www.highlandsnordic.on.ca/), courtesy of the WRNSC and the Grand Valley Trails Association, will be on Saturday, January 31st, 2015. Travel will be aboard a very comfortable Ayr’s coach bus.
Highlands is a great family destination, with 24 km of impeccably groomed trails for classic and skate skiing. Novice to expert skiers will find a trail to match their abilities. For a different pace, there’s also 7 km of snowshoe trails and a toboggan hill (bring your own toboggan, but no GT Racers or stand-on sleds). The ski centre also provides ski equipment rentals (both classic and skate), pro & service shops (they’ll even wax your skis), change rooms, waxing facilities and a full service cafeteria that offers hot soup and sandwiches, hot and cold drinks & fresh baked goods.
Trip cost includes bus fare & ski trail fee. The fee is non-refundable, unless the trip is cancelled. Advance registration and payment is required. Registration and payment deadline is Friday January 16th.
Fee for WRNSC members: Adults – $40; Children over 6 & Youths (18 & under) – $25; Children 6 & under – $12. Fee for Adult non-members is $48.
