It’s essence has not changed:
A reservation is complete and a seat will be saved only once the full cost or designated downpayment is prepaid by cash or cheque. A full refund is made if the club cancels the trip or if certain other conditions are met.

Snow Falls, Trails Are Groomed

That’s the way it works for our ever-vigilant trail grooming team. On the weekend of Nov 4, just after the first good snowfall, all the trails at White Butte and Kinsmen Park, both skate lane and classic track, were fully groomed. Science Centre, Douglas Park and Les Sherman Park were groomed later that week.
