News and Events

News about 2022 season

After a difficult 2020-21 season, in which CADS Alberta choose, along with the majority of it's Zone programs , to not run on-snow programs due to the COVID-19 concerns and health restrictions that were in place .

With our 2021-22 registration having started September 1, 2021, we are presently planning to be active with on-snow programming, and our CADS Alberta staff and Board are working closely with our CADS Alberta Zone programs to implement a safe "Return to Snow Program".

Please check our website frequently, as we will provide monthly updates up to November, and more frequent updates as we get closer to the on-snow season.

We want to ensure that our Membership have the information they require, and that our participants and volunteers can look forward to winter activity, and connecting socially with their friends in the CADS Alberta community.

So please go ahead and register for the 2021-22 season!
