COVID-19 Response

4-H CANSKI will have to adapt to the following changes for the 2021 season:

  • There will be no group transportation. As a result, our schedule will focus on weekends when parents or guardians can drive skiers to the trailheads.
  • We are hoping that parents who are driving can help us respond to a need for more coach/leaders to accommodate small group sizes.
  • We will ski in groups of 8 or less with buffs while skiing and masks when talking.
  • While skiing we will try to maintain a 6ft physical distance.
  • We may not have access to reliable indoor warming areas available for skiers so skiers will need to come prepared with extra layers for the start and finish.
