This beautiful spring weather has us planning for infrastructure improvements at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre. But first thing first - a little spring cleaning! Please join us for a Work Party on Sunday April 26th starting at 11:00 AM to help with a variety of tasks including silt fence installation, grass seeding, slash pile clean up and more. We will be providing beverages and a BBQ afterward as a thanks for your hard work, so please plan to stay and socialize.

Also, we are looking for experienced painters to help paint the warming hut beams. If you have experience and can help out this coming week please email admin@fernienordic.com

On Wednesday April 8th, the Fernie Brewing Co. presented a cheque of $3,653 to the Fernie Nordic Society. This amount is a donation from the brewery's 'Cheers to Charity' Donation Program for paddle samples sold between January and March 2015 at the brewery store.

The cheque was presented by Lenka Hawrys of Fernie Brewing Co. who wrote 'We felt that your organization was very deserving of receiving these funds, as the collection of Nordic Trails, and the new Warming Hut are an integral part of this active community. And you really have impacted this community in so many ways through your programs and events!'

Thank you to all who have submitted your opinions and comments. The survey is now closed.

It is the time of the year when the Fernie Nordic Society would like to hear from you. If you have not taken our survey yet, please take a minute to tell us how we did. In fact, it will only take 3 minutes and it will really help to give you a better service. The community and our sponsors will also see the impact created by our sport.
You do not need to be a member of the Society to take part. Anyone who has skied on the trails around Fernie may do it. The survey is completely anonymous - we will not call - only 10 questions, all multiple choices ... just like at school! Additional comments are welcome, of course. Your feedback will really help! We thank you in advance.
