Membership Details 

No membership in OutThere Skiing is needed for the Windsor Park trails, because insurance is included in the Nordic Centre’s trail fees. However, for out-of-town ski trips with the group (marked with a **), membership in OutThere Skiing  –  which covers accident insurance – is required (see below). You can register online at: https://zone4.ca/regc.asp?id=9929&lan=1&cartlevel=1. It takes a bit of patience to get through the site, but you only need to do it once.

Families: $85

Membership includes a $12 (individuals) or $23 (families) CCSAM Membership.
