To adapt to Nova Scotia’s challenging winters, Halifax Nordic is experimenting with snowmaking at Brunello, which may allow more on-snow sessions, however, lessons will proceed each Saturday unless it is dangerous to be out (too cold or too icy)! Instructors will have creative options to make lessons fun and instructive with or without snow, and may suggest a change of location to your group the night before to take advantage of local conditions.

Drop-in Option: Club members can join in on any class at Brunello or McDonald Sports Park: $20 per session payable in cash to the club through the instructor.
