2018 Jackrabbit Toque Design Contest

Cross Country Canada invites all Jackrabbit and Bunnyrabbit to participate in designing the 2018 Jackrabbit Toque, which will be worn by 10,500 Jackabbit and Bunnyrabbit skiers accross Canada!

This year, we’re adding a special theme! We would like to see designs that inspire you and all your Jackrabbits friends to cross-country ski and to always try your best! But also a design that will inspire Team Canada competing at the 2018 Olympic & Paralympic Games in South Korea!

Team Canada got inspired by the sport of cross-country skiing when they first learned as Jackrabbits, and maybe one day you could be at the Games too!

Send us your designs by March 6th, 2017 at Noon MST!

Here is the template for your design: http://bit.ly/2ji3ayd

CCC AGM – request for feedback

Dear Ski Community:

RE: Request for Issues / Concerns to be brought to the Cross Country Canada (CCC) Annual General Meeting June 7 – 10, 2012.

Nordic Skiing in Canada is based on a “Club” approach. Specifically individual skiers are encouraged to belong to a Nordic ski club. These ski clubs are grouped together in our Division: Cross Country Ski Association of Manitoba (CCSAM). Each province and territory in Canada have their own Division. The Divisions are governed by CCC, which is run by a volunteer Board and a small staff.

Karin McSherry our Executive Director and myself Richard Huybers Chairman of CCSAM will be attending the CCC AGM. We request you Contact us with your questions, concerns and issues that you would like us to bring forward on your behalf. An example of one issue that has recently developed is the issue of ski trail grooming in Riding Mountain National Park. Proposed federal budget cuts may result in no Nordic ski grooming in the Park in the 2012-2013 season (click here for more info).

Feel free to contact us before June 7, 2012.


Richard Huybers
CCSAM Chairman
