Even the Duck Mountain Loppet is Cancelled

Duck Mountain Park in snowier times

On Tuesday February 21 2017, Allan Bear posted the following on the Kamsack Ski Club: “Due to the warm weather of the past week and with no significant snow in the forecast for this week, I am sorry to say the [Duck Mountain] Loppet is canceled.”

As a consequence, the Regina Ski Club and our Jackrabbits have cancelled both busses scheduled for a trip to the loppet on Saturday February 25.

Kurt Oatway – Bad News and Good News

Kurt Oatway, 2016 IPC Downhill Sit Ski World Champion, unfortunately had his season cut short with a broken arm. Although Kurt is off the world circuit, it doesn’t stop him from contributing to adaptive skiing. He will be at Mission Ridge Winter Park this Saturday signing autographs at the Regina Alpine Adaptive Ski Program’s Challenge Cup event.

Sasktel Challenge Cup February 25 2017

The 11th Annual Sasktel Classic Challenge Cup is a major event sponsored by companies proud to feature adaptive skiing. Corporate teams, each including a member of the Regina Ski Club Alpine Adaptive Ski Program (RAASP), participate in fun races. This event truly illustrates the resilience and abilities of many “disabled” skiers, including blind, paraplegic, quadriplegic, amputee, and autistic and cognitively challenged individuals. Come to Mission Ridge on Saturday for a great time.

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.

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!
