WAFL Equipment Library

The Winter Active for Life (WAFL) Equipment Lending Library makes it easy for rural and First Nation communities to borrow cross country ski and snowshoe equipment free of charge for the season. Instead of a library card, you simply need a Cross Country Yukon (CCY) affiliate or RPAY Community/Associate membership.
