Ski Club 2013-2014 Season Complete

The Red Lodge alpine trip ended March 30. The last Nordic race of the season was in Canmore April 4-6. And somehow the RSC trail grooming team managed to keep White Butte Trails in great shape up to April 8.
But now our winter programs are done, and the competitive teams are limited to dryland training.

Last Ski of 2013-14 at White Butte? April 8

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!
