Welcome to the NWT’s newest club! Ragged Riders Snowsports Society launched in 2016 and became a formal club in 2017, providing residents of Yellowknife with access to snowboarding and freestyle skiing at the city’s Bristol Pit complex.
No matter your level, Ragged Riders invited you to try the continually improving facilities at Bristol Pit – and bring the family! The club’s focus for the 2017-18 season is making sure all members of the family feel comfortable and confident on the slopes: our instructors will provide all the guidance you need, whether you’re a complete novice or a developing athlete.
The club has rental equipment available for day or season-long use at great rates, alongside day passes and season passes for access to the facility.
