Hello Jackrabbit Managers,
Whew! Saved by Mother Nature!
With a -24 degree Celsius air temperature and a -32 windchill forecast for 13:00 tomorrow, Saturday, 10 January 2015, the Assiniboine Park Jackrabbit excursion to Fort Whyte Alive for Snow Trek is hereby cancelled.
Confused by the “Whew!”?
Turns out that cross country ski trails will be found only on the exposed lakes at Fort Whyte Alive tomorrow, rather than through the fabulous forested trails of previous years. So, the session would have been not as pleasant as we originally had hoped.
So, as of now, “Sunday Session (8)” has been rescheduled back to Sunday, 11 January 2015, from 13:30 to 15:00, at Assiniboine Park.
Of course, we will confirm whether Sunday’s session will run or not by 09:30 Sunday morning. Currently, the forecast indicates a -21 degree Celsius air temperature with a -28 windchill (which is 1 degree colder than our cutoff).
We have been told that we should expect mechanically groomed, flat packed, ski trails in The Hummocks area and in what is to be our terrain park area for Sunday afternoon.
