February 27

A beautiful warm day for a ski! We'll meet as usual at the 4th T for some games and skiing. Only a few more sessions left if the weather keeps up like this! We will continue until there is no snow to ski. Last year we skied in shorts!

Don't forget the Jackrabbit Touque Design Contest as well.

Saturday Feb 20

After 2 day of melting weather, it is going to start getting cooler. Saturday morning will still be really nice though, looking like -10 around ski time. It could mean that we have some icy conditions, so opt for a bit of a warmer wax. Looking forward to seeing everyone on the 4th T at 10:30.

Saturday Scavenger Hunt at Fort Whyte!

This week, we are going to try a new adventure.  The weather looks nice for a Family ski and scavenger hunt at Fort Whyte Alive.  The plan is to meet up by 10:30 am Saturday, Feb 13 at the Welcome Centre, gather up the scavenger hunt list and then you can head out along the trail looking for different kinds of animals along the way.  There will be a treat for everyone at the end and the cafe is open there to purchase hot chocolate if you want.

We have established a Group Rate for Wildwood Jackrabbits.  When you arrive, you can go to the Welcome Centre tell them you are with us and they will collect their access fee.

For non-members our rates are:

  • Adult -$5.75/person
  • Children 3 and up-$3.75
  • Children under 3 - Free
  • There is $3.00/person trail fee.

We have 3 family passes available for those interested.  If you are already a member, it is only $3.00 per person for skiing.

The fees will allow you access to Fort Whyte for the whole day.

The trails are groomed for classic and have a 1.5 km out and back trail to a 1.0km loop and another 1.5 km loop for the  track attack.  Once you are done the ski, there is an awesome sledding run down onto the lake for the adventurous or the animal exhibits are there too.
