Outdoor Club of East York


OCEY Ski and Snowshoe


Cross-country and snowshoe trips begin at local Conservation areas, groomed trail centers and forests.  Many trips are organized with a chartered bus, saving members the inconvenience of winter driving after a full day on the trails (advance reservation is required).

Bus fares, car pool costs, and trail fees are paid by each participant.  The club has 4 pairs of snowshoes available for members to borrow at no cost, just a refundable deposit is required.

Message from the Skiing Coordinator 

We are looking forward to an exciting Skiing & Snowshoeing season.

This winter, we are again joining with the Scarborough Cross Country Ski club (SCCSC) to provide a Saturday ski bus/coach for our members every skiable weekend. 

We also plan to have a local skiing and or snowshoeing event every Sunday, with some of the events within local parks if there is sufficient snow. 

As well, we will be resurrecting our weekly ice skating evening program but will have it on Wednesday evenings instead of Friday.

For detailed information and policies on registration, pick-up locations, cancellations, etc. Please see All You Need to Know About the 2018-2019 Ski Season(Members only -- you will be asked to log in to view.) 

A number of the events still need a coordinator, so if you can assist with any of them please let me know.

With all these great events, there is no reason for you to hibernate this winter. Looking forward seeing you on the trails.
