Sun Feb 7: Bunnyrabbit and Jackrabbit Sessions, Douglas Park.
Tue Feb 9: Group Ski Lesson, the fourth of a series of five. Lesson four will be made up next Tuesday or at a later date, subject to weather and snow conditions.

Sat, Feb 13: Kenosee Sweetheart Nordic Day Trip, Moose Mountain Provincial Park.
Sat, Feb 13: Canadian Birkebeiner Ski Festival. Even the fabled Birkie, held annually in the Cooking Lake – Blackfoot Provincial Recreational Area east of Edmonton, has been cancelled due to poor snow conditions and lack of adequate alternate venues nearby.
