Today at Kananaskis Village the volunteers were recognized for their vital role in the continuation of grooming in Kananaskis. The support of volunteers was crucial to keeping groomed ski trails open in K-Country this winter. Thank you for making a difference!
PLPP Tracksetter James, on behalf of the provincial government, accepted a $210,000 cheque from Nordiq Alberta to cover the costs of grooming in Kananaskis.
Ribbon Creek Tracksetter Jeff who is retiring, was recognized for his 38 years of grooming in Kananaskis.
One volunteer who didn’t receive recognition today was Ken Hewitt. A huge thanks to Ken for everything he’s done, and it has been a lot, to make sure that grooming was reinstated. I’ve been working with Ken over the winter and have developed an enormous respect for his organizational abilities, knowledge, and diplomacy. Not to mention the hundreds of hours he has put towards this cause.
Ken also presented the preliminary financial statements which are pictured in the photo gallery below.
The proceedings were live-streamed on Zoom to the volunteers. I hope that next year all the volunteers can attend and receive their recognition in person. Due to the pandemic, only ten people were in attendance.
