Please note – Two changes compared to previous years:
- The trip will be one week earlier than usual, on January 19; registration and payment deadline is January 4th.
- We have reserved a 32-passenger activity coach instead of a 54-passenger motor coach, but we will be able to upgrade to a motor coach if we know early enough that we have more participants. So, please, register early!
The 13th 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 19, 2019. Travel will be aboard a comfortable Ayr’s activity coach, which offers the same amenities as the big coaches, but has no washroom.
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 and 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 and fresh baked goods.
Trip cost includes bus fare and ski trail fee. The fee is non-refundable, unless the trip is cancelled. Advance registration is required. Registration and payment deadline is Friday, January 4th.
Fee for WRNSC members: Adults – $40; Children over 6 and Youths (18 and under) – $25; Children 6 and under – $12. Non-member fees: Adult and junior – $48; children 7 and under – $32.
