Ever wanted to try nordic sit-skiing? Now’s your chance! Join SCI BC and Whistler Adaptive Sports for a day on the groomed cross-country ski trails of Callaghan!

Enjoy over 50 kilometres of groomed cross-counrty ski trails for all levels of skiers at the Whistler Olympic Park. Whistler Adaptive Sports will provide all the necessary skiing equipment (sit-skis and poles) and will have instructors on hand to help transfer, teach and guide you through the park. They will also help ensure you’re using proper technique and can answer any questions that you may have! Some important details:

  • Transportation to the event is not provided.
  • Please dress apprioriately for cold weather (gloves, toques, winter jacket, etc.) and be prepared to spend the majority of your time outside—don’t worry though, it’s absolutely beautiful!
  • Lunch is not provided. Please make sure to bring enough food and snacks for the day!
  • This event is free, but registration is required. Contact Jenna at jwright@sci-bc.ca to RSVP.
