Day Trips cancelled

March 8, 2021

The NTSC board has decided that the club will not offer Alpine Day Trips for this season, due to the provincial announcements made on March 5 regarding ongoing health protocols for the City of Toronto. 

To responsibly comply with the government’s pandemic guidelines, the board previously advised members it would suspend all day trips when Toronto is in lockdown, grey, or red and would not operate to a destination classified as in lockdown, grey, or red. With the recent announcement that Toronto is moving to grey, we estimate there are not enough potential skiing days left to operate day trips, as Toronto is unlikely to go into orange before the end of the ski season

The board is incredibly grateful to the all NTSC volunteers who, since May 2020, have been diligently planning how best to run a season during a pandemic. A separate COVID committee prepared the protocols for the all services we provide and produced a COVID-19 framework, which members can review in the member’s area.

While sad, the club now focuses on taking the knowledge gained this year to prepare for a season in 2022. NTSC still plans to offer socials to our members.

We appreciate you keeping your membership with us this season.

KEEPING OUR MEMBERS SAFE DURING COVID-19

When participating in NTSC functions this season you can expect the following changes due to COVID-19 safety protocols set by local health authorities:

  • Face Coverings (mask or face shield) will be required for many NTSC functions (buses, Alpine/Nordic lessons, resorts, some socials).
  • All NTSC members (and their guests) will be required to sign a COVID-19 health declaration prior to participation in any in-person functions.
  • NTSC members and their guests must follow ALL protocols in place by vendors, host Resort(s) and Local Public Health Authorities.

  Failure to comply with these safety measures will be deemed reason to terminate your NTSC membership without a refund.

Ski, travel & Party!

As a member, you get far more value than just a ski day. Once it's safe, we can't wait to get back to our usual activities on - and off - the snow.

SKI & RIDE

Downhill ski, snowboard or Nordic ski at the best places in Ontario! Drive up or catch the bus from convenient locations in/around Toronto.

Whether you're just starting out or improving at any level, our member instructors offer lessons and coaching - free with your membership!

TRAVEL 

Safely explore the mountains, as long as COVID-19 doesn't throw any snowballs into our plans.

We've introduced new driveup options, smaller trips, more single rooms, and Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR) insurance is available with trips to keep you safe. All trip participants must follow the protocols in place by vendors, host Resort(s) and Local Public Health Authorities.

PARTY

Throughout the year, our winter community comes together at social events on and off the snow.

Usual events include a Season Launch Party, Christmas Party, Year-end bash, and regular socials throughout.

This year we've shifted to events that can held safely within COVID-19 guidelines.
