A few things to note…

This website has been undergoing a number of changes over the past few weeks.  Bear with me as I stumble over some of the hurdles that come along with navigating new territory.  The menu now has a drop-down option so please take note of the extra links attached to “About”, “Photo Gallery”, and “Marketplace”.

  1. Please spread the word to your friends and family that they are to FOLLOW this website in order to receive email notifications re: any posts to this site.  All announcements about our ski club will be made through website posts from now on.  Please remind fellow club members about this change.
  2. Registration for APJ will be closing in a few weeks (December). You must register for the club for insurance reasons and so the coaches can contact you when necessary.
  3. A “Buy & Sell” section is now attached to this website.  You can find out more about it under “Marketplace”.
  4. Photos have been posted from Sunday’s dry-land session.
  5. Check out the coaches’ bios and photos.  Every coach took time to write a blurb about her- or himself in order for you to know each one better!  Take time to read their stories.


Today is our first session for 2014-2015!

Just a quick reminder to everyone that today is the very first APJ ski club session (on land, of course!) at Assiniboine Park.  Meet at the Duck Pond Shelter at 1:30 p.m.  Please wear shoes appropriate for “hiking” along the park’s riverbanks.


“Orientation + Dryland Fun 1” Sunday October 19, 2014

Hello Jackrabbit Managers,

This Sunday:

  • Join us this upcoming Sunday, 19 October 2014, between 13:30 and 15:00, in and near the Assiniboine Park Duck Pond Shelter, for the Assiniboine Park Jackrabbits Ski Club’s “Orientation + Dryland Fun 1”, our first non-snow session of the 2014-2015 cross-country skiing season!
  • Bring your whole family. Bring your friends. Bring your friends’ friends. Forward this information to anyone who might be interested. Everyone is welcome!
  • Bunnyrabbits, Jackrabbits, and Track Attack skiers should all come prepared to run around in the great outdoors for most of this session.

Some highlights for the upcoming 2014-2015 season:

  • Twenty-four (24) sessions have been scheduled for the whole club.
  • An additional seventeen (17) sessions have been scheduled for keen Jackrabbit and Track Attack skiers looking for even more skiing.
  • Two (2) fun, out-of-town, come-if-you-can, day trips have been scheduled for the whole club.
  • Hot chocolate and wagon wheels will again be supplied as après ski refreshments most snowy Sundays.
  • Cost is still only $45 per child. Same price for your second child. All additional siblings are $10. Parents and caregivers are free!
  • Coaches Ihor, Robert, Katherine, and Jeff return this season for more skiing fun.
