January 2021 Update

BEST WISHES TO EVERYONE 

 

Happy New Year. It has been a long time since I've been in touch, and I apologize for the lack of communication. It has been a very crazy and unprecedented time, and it seems like whenever we start to make any plans, they have to be altered or adjusted. Through all of this, I hope you have kept safe, well and as active as possible. Hopefully, you have been able to get out for some personal skiing. It certainly makes us realize how important outdoor physical activity can be! We have following a few updates. 

 

ONTARIO POINTS SERIES 2021 

 

We had originally hoped to be able to offer a modified Points Series this year. With the increase of COVID cases in December, and the shutdown starting Dec 26th, we shifted our idea to a Virtual Loppet Series. We were just getting plans solidified for this, when the next‚Stay at Home‚ and Emergency Order came into effect. Therefore, to conform with regulations, to protect you and to protect and respect our host clubs and resorts, we have scrapped that idea as well. So, unfortunately for this year, personal skiing and training will be 

the order of the winter. 

We will aim to have the 2022 Points Series information ready in fall, 2021, so that you can get excited about that. In the meantime, enjoy the trails close to your home! 

 

ONTARIO MASTERS CHAMPIONSHIPS 2022 

 

We were scheduled to have the Ontario Masters Championships at Highlands Nordic, Duntroon, Feb 19-21, 2021. We have now postponed that event to approximately the same date, 2022. We'll keep you posted with exact event dates when we have more details. 


CANADIAN AND WORLD MASTERS CHAMPIONSHIPS 2022 

 

As you know, the World (and Canadian) Masters Championships, to be held in Canmore, Alberta in March 

2021, has been postponed to March, 2022. The date will be March 3-11, 2022. The organizing committee is working hard already, and has the courses up and marked! So, if anyone is able to get out to Canmore, either later this season (if travel re-opens) or early next, you will be able to pre-ski the courses! Here is the link to the
