Hello Wostaweans! The snow is here, trails are groomed, get out and ski. Updates for the next couple of weeks:

ACOA Announcement at Killarney Lake – The Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, in partnership with the City of Fredericton, the Province of New Brunswick and Wostawea Cross Country Ski Club, have a very special announcement to make at Killarney Lake Lodge on Tuesday, December 20 at 11 am. All Wostawea members and other cross country ski enthusiasts in the City are encouraged to attend.

Wostawea Programs (Jackrabbit, Track Attack and Adult) – Programs start on Saturday, January 7, 2017 at Killarney Lake Lodge. Please note that registration for lessons will close at 5pm on Thursday January 5, 2017, to allow for proper planning. No new registrations for lessons will be accepted after that time. There will also be a cap of 30 learners in the adult program, to allow for an appropriate learner to instructor ratio. So sign up today! 

Wostawea Trails – Wostawea Trails at the UNB Woodlot and Kingswood have been groomed. Please access the trails by the Kingswood Lodge. Rear access is no longer available due to construction activities on site. Killarney Lake Trails are also groomed. Come out and ski the 6 new km of trails. Check out trail conditions on this site.
