Recreational Bus Trips
Join a bus load of friendly fellow skiers for a chartered bus trip. Leave the driving to an expert so that you can concentrate your energy on skiing, eating, and socializing. The cost is very reasonable. The schedule includes trips of single or multi-day adventures, within or outside the province.
As of the 2023-2024 ski season, all bus trip registration is online via the Zone 4 website.
All of the trips listed include Nordic skiing.
Two of them, Canmore and Wapiti Alpine, have an alpine option.
Most trips, with the exception of the Canmore trip, originate in the parking lot south of the SaskPower head office, between Scarth and Hamilton Streets north of 13th Avenue. The bus will leave the lot at 8:00 AM sharp (7:30 for the Duck Mountain Loppet), so arrive 20 to 30 minutes beforehand to stow your ski equipment and other gear, choose a seat, and get yourself on the confirmed passenger list.
A typical day trip arrives at the ski trails in late morning, depending on distance. Pack a lunch so you can eat on the bus or on the trail. You may ski up to a time set by your trip leader, typically between 3:30 and 4:30. This is followed by a trip to a restaurant for supper, and a ride back to where we started. If the trip includes a loppet, the loppet organizers typically arrange the supper.
Multi-day trips will involve staying at a hotel or two, and may include an evening social event or two.
Any trip will be subject to current health restrictions at the time of the event.
