Ok the lakes are frozen but it doesn't mean the end. Come out and practice your techniques, improve on your strokes, exits, edging, braces, rolls, everything, have a splashingly good time or just try this out. The pool at the UofC Outdoor Center has Kayak Practice Nights for $15 + tax. This must be pre-booked. Drop in is only where there is still spaces available. There are usually both recreation and river kayaks available for practice. Meet at Poolside and check in there. Do your waiver online to save time. Practice time is 8.30pm to 10pm. We will need to be out of the pool area before 10pm.
