RSVP: Please update your RSVP as early as possible, at least 24 hours before the meeting time.

Transport: CORA trips start at the trailhead. As a convenience to participants, we meet at a meeting point in Calgary then car pool from there.  You may choose to meet us at the trailhead, but please advise me ahead of time. Please reimburse the drivers for gas and if they have and share a group park pass with you. You are ultimately responsible for having a valid park pass if needed. Day passes can be purchased at the park gate.

Mandatory - XC ski package (boots, poles, classic skis), food and water. A park pass might be needed.

If you have any questions, now is the time to ask

Please ensure you answer the RSVP questions so that I can make certain that we have adequate transportation for people and skis. I reserve the right to move people on and off the list base on transportation, experience, attendance record, etc.

    Aside from some frosty cheeks, it was a fabulous day out on a new (to me) trail with some lovely people. Thanks for organizing Claude!

    Looks like good temperature, all round this coming weekend for skiing. Last weekend at Elk Pass was fine. Hopefully, I'll get on the trip, otherwise, I'll see if friends want to get out on Sunday.

      Conditions changes quite a bit during the week and temperature is a big factor these days so I won't decide until Saturday.

    Tammy and Gina, if pay your $5 you will be on list BUT that does NOT mean you will be able to go because of lack of transportation. I don't want you to pay $5 and still not go.

    when I signed up for this there was 7 spots left, how can I be on a waiting list?

    January 26, 2014

  • Gina

    I don't understand either, I am supposed to pay first, and then on a waiting list?

    January 26, 2014

  • Claude

    If you are not a paid member, I will put you on the waiting list until transportation is confirmed. Do not pay until you have been put on the attendees' list.

    January 26, 2014

  • Gina

    so you have to pay $25 total, just for coming out one time on a x-country ski trip?

    January 26, 2014

    • Claude

      Either $5 for the day or $20 for the year. Paid in advance.
