HOW DO WE REGISTER? ONLINE REGISTRATIONS ONLY.
Registration opens on October 15th at zone4.ca . We encourage you to register for learn-to-ski programs early as space is limited and our programs fill up quickly. You can register for a Wostawea membership throughout the season.
This year, registration will only be available online. The club has phased out paper registration forms to reduce volunteer time, administrative burden and improve accuracy. If you require assistance registering online, volunteers will be on hand to assist you at the Open House on Sunday December 1 at Killarney Lake Lodge between 3 - 5 pm. A credit card will be required to complete the online registration.
