The “Rabbits” and “Track Attack” cross-country ski program at Candle Creek, through the Wells Grey Outdoors Club, enjoyed a day camp on March 2 as well as a wind up party for the season on March 3.

Coach Jen Belle said the day camp was an amazing day, having Search and Rescue educate the kids on avalanche safety before going for an off trail adventure.

Members of the program also cooked and ate bannock over an open fire, drummed with Georgina Leppky, created a ramp for the following day’s wind up party and learned how to properly wax skis with Charlotte Smith.

Other activities included learning the three techniques for skate skiing with Christine Graham before having a pizza party and ending the day with a night ski while donning many glow sticks.
