Lesson Reminders

1. Please stay away from equestrian equipment and stable (its a safety issue) 
  • Skiers should not be skiing paddocks on the far side of the stable and there is no walking into the horse stalls. This is of course inappropriate and dangerous.

Program Cancellation Policy – 2016 

As much as we love to ski, there are some days when learn-to-ski lessons are not feasible due to weather conditions. Lesson cancellation will happen in the event of extreme weather or unsafe ski conditions (i.e. freezing rain / icy conditions).

We follow Cross Country Ontario Guidelines for cancellation:

  • Bunnyrabbit groups (age 4-6): If the temperature without windchill is below -15°C
  • For older children / adults : If the temperature without windchill is below – 18°C

Determining & Communicating Cancellations:
Lesson cancellations are determined by 10:30 am on Saturday mornings and be posted on the www.kanatanordic.ca website.

In colder temperatures leaders adjust their lesson plans so skiers are not standing around and have more frequent breaks.  As well, we respect parents decision to determine what is best for their child and in what conditions they should be skiing.

Always make sure you and your children are dressed for the weather and are comfortable in the conditions.
