Doing Our Part to Slow COVID-19 Spread

As case counts continue to rise in much of the Province, Nordiq Alberta is continuing to prioritize the health and safety of our membership to ensure a successful ski season. Like everyone, we are concerned about the recent increase is cases in all jurisdictions of the Province as we anticipate winter ski programming and preparations for the Alberta Cup Schedule.

To that end, preparations continue for the first Alberta Cup weekend December 12-13, 2020 hosted by Canmore Nordic Ski Club. Ongoing discussions with the organizing committee focus on strategies to maintain distancing, manage group sizes, and eliminate areas where larger groups can gather.

We understand that individuals may be feeling the effects of ‘COVID fatigue’ however as we head into the winter months it is crucial that we all continue following Provincial Guidance to best support one another’s health and safety.

We would also like to extend a big thank you to everyone for following Provincial protocols and reaching out to our office when questions arose. Your willingness to work with us through these unprecedented times has directly contributed to our ability as a Province to continue cross country ski programming.

While we continue to monitor the situation, we urge our members to re-familiarize yourself with our COVID-19 protocols which are updated as the relaunch guidance documents change. We also want to reiterate the importance of keeping the number of cohorts you participate in small, the use of masks while in larger groups, and the continued use of handwashing and/or hand sanitizing.
