On March 9, 50 bunnies and jackrabbits gathered at Dakota Ridge to celebrate the closing of another successful ski season.

Everyone enjoyed the sunshine to participate in a biathalon, sprints and scavenger hunts.

The season started mid-January with very little snow and concerns by coaches that skiing might not be possible. But after Mother Nature came through with a large winter storm, the remaining five weekends provided lots of snow and great ski opportunities for the children and coaches.

The Tetrahedron Outdoor club has overseen the cross country ski program for the last five years. The program is part of Cross Country Canada and teaches children ages four to 12 the skills of classic and skate ski. Parent and coach volunteers run the program on the Sunshine Coast.

Dakota Ridge jackrabbits would like to thank the generosity of Dr. Bland Dentistry, Mr. Mender and Strait Coffee in particular and, of course, every person who volunteers their time to make this program affordable and fun.

Registration for next year begins in November and can only accommodate 60 children.

If you are interested in learning more about this ski program for next year, please email drjackrabbits@gmail.com for more information.
