Upcoming events

    Let's get the season rolling, come on out to the OISC registration and preview night for dinner and drinks with your skating friends with informal talks to brief you on the plans for the upcoming season. Click here for more information.
  •   Sat, Sep 9: Trip to the P'tit Train du Nord - Join us for a day of fun and distance skating... at your own pace. Le P'tit train is a former railway. Half of the trail - from Labelle to Mont Laurier, a distance of 100kms - was paved over many years ago. The best thing is that there are slight inclines but no hills. Not to mention the beautiful scenery along the way. As mentioned at last year's AGM, we will skate a different section, starting at l'Annonciation and skate to Nominigue. Rain Date Sunday September 10th.
