Cross-country trails ready for skiers

If you didn’t go cross country skiing at Deer Park Golf Course Sunday, you missed an opportunity which doesn’t come along very often.

With the frost on the trees the golf course took on a magical appearance.

The trails were set and the temperature was - 8C. Nothing could have made it more perfect. It was truly a day to remember.

Many thanks to the City of Yorkton for allowing the Yorkton Cross Country Ski Club (YCCSC) to use Deer Park golf course to again set cross country ski trails, and to Ken Gedak and his volunteers for setting those trails.

So you ask how can I enjoy such a marvelous experience?

The trails are free to use by anyone, although the YCCSC asks that you take out a membership to help support the volunteers who maintain the trails. The memberships are $30 per person, or $75 for a family.

The YCCSC opens the golf course club house on Tuesdays at 7:00 pm and Sundays from 1:00 to 4:00.

If you don’t have equipment you can rent it on Sundays for a daily fee of $10 and a weekly fee of $25 but you will be required to become a member for insurance purposes.

If you are a beginner, be sure to dress in layers.

If you are worried about getting lost out there in the wilderness don’t worry, the three loops all begin and end at the club house.

If you are a member and would like to plan a day for yourself or a group other than Sunday to have the club house open please contact Rick Vaughan at 306-782-3299.   

The YCCSC hopes you take advantage of one of Yorkton’s true hidden treasures this winter. All we need is snow and good weather. Deer Park Golf course will take care of the beautiful scenery.
