Skiing - Larch Hills

Headlamps are mandatory for all ski team members. For safety reasons, if you do not have a headlamp you will not be permitted to ski with your group.

Peewees: Skate Skiing 4:00 - 5:30 pm with a headlamp

Special technique sessions will be held from 3:30 – 4:00 for Pee Wees that are able to arrive early on December 12 and 19. Regular practice will still be from 4 – 5:30 pm.  Pee Wee skiers that are new to skating or first year Pee Wees are strongly encouraged to attend. Parents might be able to arrange ride sharing for these two days.  With the new 4 pm start time, it is proving to be difficult to work on skate technique in the dark. The sessions will be held in the stadium or within the first 200 metres of Larch Hills Rd or Medford Rd for those that might arrive late. 

Bantams: Skate skiing 4:00-5:30pm - headlamp mandatory

Mantracker!! Back at Skimikin (by popular demand)

  • Skimikin Lake Rd Tappen, BC, V0E 2X3 Canada (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Once again it’s time for Mantracker. By popular demand, it will be held at Skimikin again. You have 90 minutes to try to get to all your required stations while trying to avoid getting captured by Mantrackers. Being late or getting captured will give you time penalties. The fastest team wins. There are different numbers of stations for PeeWees, Bantams and Midgets and up.

Like last year, the start/finish area is going to be at the West Campground (see the map). Starting this year, a horn will sound indicating the final 10 minutes and no further captures by Mantrackers will be allowed after the horn sounds.

More information in the attached document. You might have to look at a specific schedule (PeeWee, Bantam, etc) to see the document.
