Wanted - Publicity & Promotions Volunteer
We've got a good thing going at Lappe with excellent programs and great race hosting, but we need help telling the world what a good thing we are. The Club has been on a strategic path to grow the Club, to get more people active and on skis. Our current media volunteer has just left town so we are looking for a replacement. Check out this short PDF describing the role for further information.

Club & Program REGISTRATION for 2016/2017
Lappe's online registration is up and running for the 2016/2017 season. This year the registration is separated into two separate registrations: MEMBERSHIP & PROGRAM.
All persons wishing to register in regular Lappe ski programs must first become Club members. With the separate Club Membership registration process, folks can now register first as club members, perhaps as a family, and then use the Program registration multiple times.
For Program Descriptions, visit the Program section of the website. For Trail pass information visit the Trail Pass Fees section of the website.
Register online at www.zone4.ca. Once at the Zone4 website, type LAPPE in the search box at the top to see all of Lappe's current registrations.
Lappe Nordic Ski Club is a "club", not a business, that operates primarily through the efforts of its members who volunteer time and effort. This allows the club to operate its many excellent programs with very low fees for its member participants. To ensure this continues, the Lappe Board has introduced a formal Volunteer Engagement plan. This plan details volunteer opportunities as well as exemptions for new members and members in the younger Jackrabbit programs.
