APJ annual expedition: Sunday February 25 at Falcon Ridge… and other important news

If your calendars were already marked, great! – you won’t miss out on this coming Sunday’s APJ annual expedition to Falcon Ridge Ski resort!

Sunday’s session (February 25) will be at Falcon Ridge (Falcon Trails Resort) – NOT at Assiniboine Park.

You’ll find Falcon Trails at the end of the south shore road of Falcon Lake: there will be great snow, milder temps, and awesome terrain!  Google Falcon Trails for a map and great resort stories or

Please prepare to arrive for skiing at 11:00 am.  We will ski together as a large group (or two).

There is a yummy restaurant there, or bring your lunch.  Bring helmets (or rent) if you want to have some more fun tubing in the afternoon… or keep skiing!  Many families stay to the end of the day and all ages have had a great time.

It’s a provincial park so remember to bring your park pass!

Driving time from Assiniboine Park to Falcon is 2 hours.  Leaving the city by 8:30 will give you plenty of time to unload the vehicle once you get there.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Secondly, the annual Dash for Cash event is next week Tuesday February 27 at Windsor Park.  It’s a really fun, very short event for kids in Nursery School through Grade 6.  Only $1 per child.  Registration is on site from 5:30-6:30.  Races begin at 6:45 and are usually finished by 7:30.  All children win either chocolate loonies or actual cash loonies!  Winners also receive medals.  More details about Dash for Cash can be found here on the CCSAM website.

Third, APJ coaches Ihor, Jeff, Katherine, and Yan will all be in Thompson with their children (James, Hayes, Hudson, Axelle, Nastassja, & Don-Han) who are competing in the MB Winter Games along with fellow-APJer, PJ McManus, from March 4-7… so Sunday March 4 will not likely run as a formal APJ session.

APJ on for Sunday Feb 18

Hi Skiers,

Hi just went to confirm the park and it’s a whiteout and the tracks are all wiped out and the wind is way way bigger than planned.

Stay at home please, sorry for the the notice,

In spite of some wind we will carry on and ski this afternoon as per the usual schedule.  Be mindful of the wind so make sure that your skier has something to pull up on to their face.

Classic skis and grip wax training for the track attackers.

As before- hot chocolate and wagon wheels after!
