Reserving for Group Ski Use
Organizations or large groups of individuals may request group booking for skiing at the club.
Large group bookings may be arranged for weekday or weekend use, but cannot be scheduled at the same time as the Jackrabbit program, loppets or other club events which attract large number of skiers. Please refer to our calendar of events.
Cross-country ski discount packages from the Temiskaming Nordic Ski Club are now available for companies, institutions, and community organizations.
Each package contains day passes for adult skiing and equipment usage. The rates for the passes are based on the cost of a day trail pass, plus the rate for ski rental equipment (boots, poles and skis). The discounted rate is $20.00/adult, which represents a 20% reduction from regular rates.
|For a group of 10 adult participants||$200 for trails & equipment|
|For a group of 20 adult participants||$400 for trails & equipment|
Other package combinations can be arranged upon request.
Gift / Reward Idea For Clients & Employees
You can also purchase a group of passes at the above rates to offer as a great gift/reward idea for clients and employees! Upon purchase of a package, the buyer will receive the requested number of day passes. The guest who uses the pass will take the pass to the ski club, fill out the club registration form (for insurance purposes) and place the pass with the registration form in the day use box inside the chalet.
Reserving for Non-ski Group Use
Rentals may be made available to community groups that participate in activities which respect the environment and promote the health of the community and whose activities and actions will uphold Temiskaming Nordic’s image and reputation. In the past, groups have used our trails and facilities for running, photo sessions, etc.
Any group interested in booking the facilities should send their request via email at least a week before the proposed outing to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The club may be able to provide qualified instructors for organizations lacking experienced ski coaches. Please contact us to see if basic group training would be possible.
From a risk management perspective, teachers/supervisors are encouraged to have adequate skiing background and may decide to receive additional training prior to the school visit. Workshops may be available to provide basic introduction to the technique essentials for novice skiers. Please watch for training dates on the calendar of events or contact us to organize a training session.
