It’s a full day affair with awesome skiing for all abilities and tubing on the hill or more track skiing if you didn’t get enough in the morning, and pack a lunch and your provincial park pass,

No Thursday skiing

It has not warmed up, and upon discussion with others, there will be no Fast Rabbit Thursday tonight.

Please look at the blog from a couple of days ago for revised schedule and I am looking forward to seeing as many of us as possible at the Jackrabbit Jamboree!

Coach Ihor

Froze my nose! Like it was white frozen!

I’m now inside for the evening, having frozen my nose solid white while running the dog.  Haven’t done it that badly in over 30 years! Ouch

BUT Fast Rabbit Thursday is still on as they say it is warming back up.  Plan for classic skis as the snow will not be skate friendly.

APJ upcoming events!

Hi All,

Everything happens and is rescheduled in February!

Okay, the spin-drift has settled.
to update: Manitoba Champs and Riel Weekend this weekend so
no session Sunday Feb 16.

Sunday Feb. 23 is now the Jack Rabbit Jamboree! So, rabbits go to Windsor Park:
Jack Rabbit Jamboree click here!
There is a small fee of $10, but it is a great show. This will make your skier go to bed early!
This is a major hi-light of the season for rabbits so we encourage all families to attend. Bottom line- no Assiniboine Park session as everyone seems to participate in this event.  All abilities have a great time! APJ coaches are there too,

If you have questions about the event please send me a message.

This Thursday Night Fast Rabbits is still on, Wednesday Night racing cancelled due to cold air.

Way to go: Coach Yan and Don-Han for grinding out the Manitoba Loppet, Coach Katherine, Nastasja and Axelle for shooting out the Manitoba Biathlon Championships,

And remember the 37.25 km everybody skied on Sunday!

Fast Rabbit Thursday! Classic Skis

Hi Skiers,

Skiing Thursday at Windsor Park, 7:00 at the ski racks ready to go.  As the temperature and fresh snow may make for a sluggish skate ski, let’s get the classic skis out, and work on balance while gliding, and strong leg push and extension,

Here are some images from the Sunday marshmallow roast! What a great day!


YES, Skiing is on for Sunday Feb 2!

And it will be spectacular!

Sun, snow, tracks, and treats, 1:30 the usual place near the duck pond,
