Youngsters are taking to the ice to learn that greatest of Canadian winter pastimes.

The Cranbrook Skating Club has started up its CanSkate program for the winter session.

The club is the sole provider of learn-to-skate lessons, effective January 1, as the City of Cranbrook is no longer offering their skating programs.

Because of this, the Cranbrook Skating Club is offering punch cards to match what the city previously offered.

Sessions are underway from 3:45 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday at the Memorial Arena in Cranbrook.
