The 5Winds board has decided to suspend all in-person outings for the 2020/2021 ski/snowshoe season. This policy will be reassessed at the 2021 AGM. Membership fees have been reduced for the coming year to $30 from $45.
The Five Winds Backcountry Ski Club is a four-season outdoor club. During the winter months, we enjoy cross country skiing on marked, ungroomed wilderness trails, off-trail snowshoeing and winter camping. Post COVID, each Sunday, from January to the end of March, a luxury coach will take us to different areas of our trail system. During the spring, summer and fall, we enjoy activities such as hiking, backpacking, trail clearing, and camping. Read more...
