The trails were groomed and track set Monday (thanks Dave) but this mild weather isn't helping. Note that later next week some dangerous trees will be removed in the area of the willow dome loop. There may be cones indicating not to use this loop. Please take care.
Please don't walk on the ski trails and do not take dogs with you. Note that Ignatius requires that dogs should be on leashes.
Good luck to the Canadian Cross Country Ski team at the Winter Olympic Games: Dahria Beatty, Cendrine Browne, Anne-Marie Caneau, Emil Nishikawa, Jesse Cockney, Alex Harvey, Knute Johnsgaard, Russell Kennedy, Devon Kershaw, Graeme Killick and Lenny Valjas.
Did you have a great ski? Are you thankful that Ignatius offers skiing on its property? Write a testimonial that we can post on this website. Send it to Guelph-Nordic@hotmail.com We will just use your first name. Thanks!!
If you see a downed tree or other hazard on the trails, please email us so it can be dealt with. Again, thank you.
How To Pay for your Skiing
This season the payment system will be the same as last - put $5 ($4 senior, 60+) in a small envelope (provided in the mailbox), sign it, and drop it in the post box before skiing. After 8 skis the rest are free! Or you can pay $40 ($32 senior, 60+) for the whole season. Make cheques out to Guelph Nordic Ski Club. Other amounts are available for children and families - see Membership below. Don't use larger envelopes as they plug the drop box.
Places to look are: Play It Again Sports, 218 Silvercreek Parkway in Guelph, who sometimes have second hand cross country ski equipment and often new equipment as well. Paramount, 30 Arrow Road, sells new cross country ski equipment and clothing. Speed River Cycle got out of the business a few years ago. If you have equipment to sell - send us the info and we will put it on the website here for a month or until you let us know you've sold it. Include either an email or a phone number and your first name.
