Nordic Lessons for Adults a Big Success

The new program of Nordic Lessons for Experienced Adult Skiers is already a success, more than a month before its first session in mid-January. Three experienced and well-qualified instructors – Ruth Chambers, Craig Francis and Trevor Norgen – have volunteered to teach the lessons. As of December 12, twenty-four people have registered for the sessions. As the lesson fees will go to support our young competitors in the Nordic Race High Performance Program, we know we have already netted approximately $2,000 for that program. A big thank you to our three volunteer coaches and to all the registrants.

For program details, see our Nordic Lessons page.

Fat Bike Experiment

fat bikes on ski trail

Fat Bikes will be experimented with on selected nordic ski trails around Regina this season. Fat Bikes are NOT regular mountain bikes. They have extremely wide, soft tires that, when used properly, don’t disturb xc skate lanes any more than skate skis. They have been allowed at several mountain trail systems, including Canmore Nordic Center, with good results.

Regina Ski Club (RSC) volunteer trail grooming leaders at Les Sherman Park and AE Wilson Park have agreed to experiment with them for this season. Also, the hiking and snowshoe trails, but NOT ski trails, at WBT will be available to them on a trial basis. Self policing guidelines have been compiled by the Regina Multisport (RMC) and Regina Cycle (RCC) Clubs who approached the RSC for this trial.

Local Trail Conditions – as of Dec 15 2014

Well, the RSC-supported trails in Regina and at White Butte have survived a lack of fresh snow followed by thawing temperatures. Since recent skiffs of new snow, some trails, including Kinsmen Park and Science Centre in Regina, have been lightly groomed and remain skiable.
Continue to check our Trail Conditions page for updates on trail conditions.
The page also includes maps of the trails themselves and where they are located.

Return to Red Lodge … again – March 18-22 2015

The extremely popular alpine ski bus trip to Red Lodge Montana is on for another year. For a single low price, alpine skiers, snowboarders and occasionally Nordic skiers are treated to a bus ride, four nights in a hotel, three days of lift tickets, special events, and a whole lot of fun.
Warning: this trip sells out quickly.

For complete details of the trip, the ski hill, the hotel, and how to register, see our Alpine Trips page.

The Regina Ski Club

The Regina Ski Club (RSC) provides programs, events and trips for all ages and levels of skiers, individuals and families alike. Club volunteers pack and set ski trails at the White Butte Recreation area north of Emerald Park and within city limits in Wascana Center and a number of city park locations.

Our mission is to create opportunities for recreational and competitive Nordic (cross country) and Alpine (downhill) skiing and snowboarding. The spirit of the club is aptly summed up by our motto: fun, friendship, fitness!
