Skiing Activities at Waskimo are Cancelled

You doubtless have noticed several days of melting snow with no snowfall to replace it. What little remains of the groomed trails at the Science Centre is too thin, soft, slushy and / or icy to be fit for a fun loppet or beginner lessons. As a result, we are reluctantly forced to cancel all of the events planned by Regina Ski Club as part of the Waskimo Winter Festival version 2.0.

This includes

  • The youth/adult loppet, general public skiing, and beginner lessons are cancelled.
  • Jackrabbits activities for children are cancelled.
  • There will be no Ski Club trailhead tent.
  • Free ski loans from Fresh Air Experience are no longer required.
  • The bike race and fat bike demo are also cancelled.

The Regina Ski Club is extremely greatful to everyone who has put so much effort into planning and organizing the RSC contribution to this year’s Waskimo 2.0. In particular, Julie Rutledge and her team planned all the Jackrabbit events, Don Laing was going to lead beginner lessons, and Sandy Bain had organized a loppet a la Wednesday Night Races. Most especially we thank Gregg Brewster for representing the RSC at literally years of Waskimo planning meetings and for organizing all the other organizers who have contributed to the effort. Hopefully all this effort is not in vain, and we can use all our great ideas and plans next year at Waskimo 2.1. But for now, as Groomer Gregg says, “It is what it is.”

Please note Waskimo still plans several indoor events at the Conexus Arts Centre. Consult the Waskimo website for details of which programs are cancelled and which programs are scheduled to go ahead as originally planned.

White Butte Trails Remain Skiable Despite Warm Weather

As of Sunday February 19, White Butte Trails are icy early mornings and soft in the afternoons. So, if timed properly, good spring skiing is still available around mid-day, especially for skating. Temperatures are forecast to return to normal Wednesday night and we expect the sheltered areas of WBT to survive the warm spell intact. After that, there could be weeks of good skiing left.

As always, please check our Trail Conditions page, with an eye on the “Last Updated” date for each set of trails. You may be pleasantly surprised!

Sasktel Challenge Cup February 25 2017

On February 25th, 2017, the 11th Annual SaskTel Challenge Cup will take place at Mission Ridge Winter Park. Event proceeds will be presented to the Regina Ski Club Alpine Adaptive Ski Program (RAASP).

Jackrabbits Bus added for Duck Mountain Loppet Trip

On Saturday February 25th our Nordic bus trip is to the ever-popular Annual Duck Mountain Loppet. The first bus is full, but this year we will have a second bus with priority seating for Jackrabbits families. Non-Jackrabbits skiers are also welcome on the second bus.
There is still room – register now!

The buses leave Regina at 7:30 AM from the SaskPower parking lot. Try to arrive by 7:00. Prices for the bus are $20 for kids and $35 for adults. Email Julie Rutledge to reserve a seat!

Loppet registration itself is via the Kamsack Ski Club. Pre-registration is preferred. Fees are very reasonable and include snacks on the trails, certificates/pins, and a post-event turkey dinner hosted at the Rec Centre across the road from the trails.

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!
