COVID-19 Update: New Public Engagement Survey

The province is considering further loosening some public health restrictions while continuing to prioritize the needs of the health-care system and protecting Manitobans from the risks of COVID-19 and new variants.

The province is asking for feedback from Manitobans on the proposed changes, which would come into effect next week to replace the current public health orders that expire at 11:59 p.m. on Feb. 12.

Click here to view the complete details in the full release from the announcement.

The proposed changes related to sport/recreation/fitness include:

  • allowing gyms to reopen at 25 per cent capacity for one-on-one and individual training sessions with adequate physical distancing, with no group classes
  • allowing organized outdoor sports to resume for games or practices (no multi-team tournaments)

We encourage you to participate in this public engagement survey. To provide your input, visit https://engagemb.ca

Windsor Park Nordic Centre Clubhouse Will Remain Closed

Windsor Park Nordic Centre announces decision to keep clubhouse closed for the remainder of the 2020-2021 ski season.

In the interest of public health and the health and safety of staff, Windsor Park Nordic Centre management has decided against opening the clubhouse this season. Sadly, this means the Windsor Park Ski School (lesson) program is cancelled, and ski equipment will not be available for short term rental this season.

Private lessons with ski instructors may become possible later this season if Provincial Public Health Orders allow for the resumption of organized recreational/sport activity.

A limited amount of Windsor Park rental ski equipment is currently for sale. Everyone interested in purchasing used equipment from our rental inventory is encouraged to email windsorpark@ccsam.ca. Please indicate your height, weight and shoe size (EU shoe size if possible). If we have equipment suitable for you, we will reply to schedule an appointment for purchase.

Many thanks to St. Vital Councilor Brian Mayes for renting the heated, portable toilets which have been installed on site next to our garage in the parking lot. They are a very welcome addition for those heading out for a long ski or coming in from out of town.

Many thanks as well to everyone who has purchased trail passes this season so far (1800 day passes and 1300 season pass holders) and the added amounts you’ve sent as special thanks to Jim the Groomer. We all appreciate your support!

Trails Remain Open

We remain committed to keeping our trails groomed, lit and signed to the very best of our ability for the rest of this ski season. We are very much looking forward to welcoming everyone back into the clubhouse next season. We expect lots of new skiers eager to take lessons and rent equipment and we can’t wait to help you learn new skills and enjoy skiing even more than you are now!

Please continue to ski safely, stay 2 metres apart, enjoy the fresh air and exercise, and share your experiences with us on social media. We invite you to tag us @wpnordic on your Instagram posts and stories.
