Yes! We have scheduled days each month where prospective members can come out and ski with us for a day. Please visit our Racer for a Day page for more information on dates and registration. There is a small fee of $25 for a temporary BC Alpine Membership which is required to participate for the day.

Due to coach to child ratio we can only accommodate 5 children per date, so we suggest signing up early if you are interested!

Another great option is Christmas camp. This is a 3-4 day camp from December 27-30 where we will work on get comfortable on our skis again and focus on developing fundamental skills through activities, drills, and stubbie gates.
