NOV 22nd-28th

 Hi Everyone

CCY is making some changes this week to help prevent the spread of Covid and keep everyone healthy. We are trying to keep squad out of the wax room as much as possible. If you have kids starting in multiple locations I would suggest parents parking in the CGC parking lot for drop off and pick up and the old child can use the stairs to get to and from the wax room. It has been extremely busy in front of the chalet and that is a high traffic area for multiple parties.

Also to minimize the amount of kids in the wax room we will be moving Purple gear down to a sea can in the stadium on Tuesday. Purple Parents you will be picking your kids up in the Stadium from now on! Orange you will now share a sea can with Yellow. The doors will be labelled by end of practice on Tuesday. Don't worry these doors lock automatically and you need to put the code in each time to get your gear. The code to the sea cans for both doors is 9746


Stay safe and healthy!

Nov 15th-21st

 Just a few housekeeping notes to start off. All squads have to remember trail etiquette during practice and outside. The club has a lot of new members this year who are not as experienced as you guys and they might have a harder time getting out of the way. Some things to remember during practice are when your group stops to step off to the side of the trail, don't stand in the middle or take up the whole trail. If you catch up to a skier you step out of the track and go around them. When we are skiing stay in the right track. We want everyone to have an enjoyable ski when they go out.


Next don't forget to fill in if your child is racing in the Don Sumaiks. Go to the Race and Event sign up page and put either a Yes or No by their no please and thank you. The organizers need to know numbers so they can plan the right amount of volunteers so we don't go over the allowed number of people at an event.
