Masters of Adventure

The Adult Adventure Program is a program to provide adults with the same fun and active programming that the youth in the Adventure program get to enjoy.

We do a number of activities throughout the fall and spring and when the snow flies, we will ski! The activities we may do include: trail running, hiking, orienteering, bike rides, yoga, spin classes, and fitness training. We have also participated in the Canadian Ski Marathon and organized ski trips to other locations.  With the Adventure program we love variety!

Our ski outings are focused on fun and fitness.  Most outings will generally be held in the Gatineau Park.  The sessions are usually organized in advance so that you can plan for them.

Being part of Chelsea Nordiq we also help out with club events such as the Ski Swap and the Cookie Beiner. We also welcome parents to ski with us as it improves the experience for all in terms of pacing, timing and supervision.

Come adventure with us!

If you have any additional questions, contact the Program Coordinator.

What is the training schedule?

The season starts October 13th. Practices are held on the following days and times:

Saturdays: 10:15am-12:15pm

Wednesdays: 7:00-8:15pm (fall) 7:00-8:30pm (winter)

Where will the sessions take place?

The majority of the training sessions will take place at various locations in the Gatineau Park. All the information will be posted on the Senior Adventure training page.

When can I register and what are the fees?

Registration opens in late August or early September and is available online. Go to the programs summary page for this year’s dates, fees and registration link.

An annual (one per family) club membership fee is charged in addition to the registration fees.

What level of ski ability do I need?

There is no pre-requisite level, but it does help if you have basic cross-country ski skills. Some level of fitness is certainly an asset, as is a positive attitude to learning new things and challenging oneself physically.

Does it matter if I miss some of the sessions?

Missing a ski session is fine… but we have noticed that going to as many sessions as possible raises our fitness level, making the longer ski outings more enjoyable/possible.

What equipment do I need?

Dryland: activewear, waterproof jacket, fanny pack, flashlight, running shoes

On-snow: skis, poles and boots appropriate for their height, weight and skill level. It is recommended that participants have equipment for both classic and skate skiing. We suggest you do not rush out and buy any new ski equipment, as we will discuss ski equipment during our first session.
