HPSC Nordic Bus Captain Announcement for N27 
on March 25, 2017

Today is the last day trip of the scheduled season. Let’s have a round of applause for Monica and her team who make the often difficult decisions about whether and where to send a bus full of skiers and snowshoers itching to get out on the snow. Thanks to you and all of the volunteers on the Nordic side of the club, we’ve had another fabulous season.

Mark your calendars for our annual Summer Fun In The Sun event on Thursday, April 13 at 7:30 pm at the Lithuanian Hall. Booths will be set up highlighting the summer programmes of various clubs and vendors around the GTA, including cycling, hiking and water sports. Check the HPSC website for details. This event is free for both members and guests.

Lastly, on Saturday evening, May 13, HPSC is holding its annual Apres Winter Gala dinner and dance, celebrating yet another fabulous winter and Canada’s 150th birthday. The “City of Stars” Dance Gala will be held at the National Yacht Club starting at 6:00 pm, with dinner at 7:00 pm, and dancing ‘til the wee hours. Online registration for members and guests is currently open at the early bird price of $80 per person. The dinner menu and the event schedule can be found on the online registration page.

Thank you.

Upcoming events

Cross-country skiers and snowshoers welcome!

 Looking for a great way to enjoy Canada’s winters? Leave the  crowds and lift lines behind and check out the cross-country side  of High Park Ski Club. With a few lessons you will fly with grace,  speed and efficiency over the forested trails. Cover distances and  hills you never thought possible with a few lessons. Add skate-  skiing and you’ll be even faster. The only thing you stand to lose is  calories!

 For something really different, try snowshoeing with us too!  Snowshoers travel on the same day trips as cross-country skiers,  since you can snowshoe at almost all of the cross-country ski  resorts we go to. We offer a number of guided snowshoe tours.  Check the cross-country day trip schedule for the dates of all our  cross-country and snowshoe outings.

 Our day trips are a great way to meet people, learn a new winter  sport and generally enjoy winter. We offer more than 20 cross-  country/snowshoe day trips from December to March on  Saturdays and Sundays.

 If you are thinking about joining the club or are new to cross-  country skiing or snowshoeing, you probably have a lot of  questions. If you don’t find the answers on our website, please feel  free to contact us at crosscountry@hpsc.ca. We look forward to  seeing you on the trails this winter!

Race results are up on the website at https://hpsc.ca/Race-Results.
