Spring and Summer Programs

For more information, see poster!  Register on Zone4.

And here are more specific details on the Spring Kids Running Wild program as well as the Spring & Summer Adult Dryland Fit programs.

2017-2018 Club & Program Registration

Lappe's Club and Program Registration for 2017- 2018 is now available at www.zone4.ca. Past online registrations required Zone4 fees and vendor credit card fees to be added on at the end of the registration transactions. In the interest of simplicity and transparency, Lappe has adjusted its club and program fees so the Zone4 and credit card fees are included in the advertised club and program fees. HST on program fees (club membership fees are exempt) are still added on at the end of each registration transaction.

For Program Descriptions, visit the Program section of the website. For Trail pass information visit the Trail Pass Fees section of the website.

Register online at www.zone4.ca. Once at the Zone4 website, type LAPPE in the search box at the top to see all of Lappe's current registrations.

Raffle and Award Winners 

It's all done! The Run & Ski windup was a great success thanks to the many volunteers and some help from Mother Nature - she let the temperature drop below zero Friday night so we didn't have a "slush cup" event.

In addition to a fun race event, we had the pleasure to honour a number of members with Club and other awards and draw the names of the lucky winners of the Lappe Club Raffle.

First, here are the Raffle winners:

VOLUNTEER ENGAGEMENT
Lappe Nordic Ski Club is a "club", not a business, that operates primarily through the efforts of its members who volunteer time and effort.  This allows the club to operate its many excellent programs with very low fees for its member participants.  To ensure this continues, the Lappe Board has introduced a formal Volunteer Engagement plan.  This plan details volunteer opportunities as well as exemptions for new members and members in the younger Jackrabbit programs.

Volunteer Opportunities
Are you ready to join a dynamic group of volunteers? Read on....

The operation of the Lappe Nordic Ski Club and the programs and services we provide depend upon the volunteer efforts of our members. With the exception of one paid coach, the ski club is run entirely by the efforts of tireless volunteers. Volunteering for our club is a great way to learn new skills, meet new people and have fun!

You can help by volunteering in different ways:

Here are a list of the key positions that need to be filled, in addition to those mentioned above.
