SANSC 2019-2020 Weekend Local Tours
SANSC would like to invite all members to join our Club Tours. SANSC Tours are designed to provide an opportunity for club members to explore new trails with friends and family, within 1-2 hours of the city. For youth who would like to participate, parent supervision and transportation is required. General format for SANSC Tours: meet at designated locations, overview of trails, assistance with waxing, groups self-assemble and select routes to ski, then meet back for post-ski beverages / campfires / etc. when available.
SANSC Tours are for club members. For liability purposes, friends or family who do not have a membership but would like to participate are required to sign the consent and risk waiver (from Cross Country Canada). The waiver must be submitted to a SANSC executive prior to participation in club ski events. This can be done at the trail head on the day of the event or via email to the club President at SNSCPresident.firstname.lastname@example.org.
The waiver is only required if the skier is not a club member and can be downloaded here: https://www.cccski.com/getattachment/About/Insurance/Informed-Consent-and-Assumption-of-Risk-Agreement_2019.pdf.aspx
Skiing will be weather and snow permitting. Updates on whether the tour is cancelled or not will be updated via Tweets, which appear on the club web page.
