We are always looking for Volunteers!

volunteersOur activities depend on the efforts of all volunteers.
Programs and events would not happen without your help.

You have a little time or lots of it? Consider volunteering for one of our activities and tasks. Take a look at the Volunteers page on this site and let us know how you can help during the season. The race #5 of the Teck Kootenay Cup will be held on February 13th at the Nordic Centre in Fernie for the first time. This is a popular race series and we will need several extra hands to make it run well for all our guests. Contact us early!

The work party on Sunday was very busy with more cleanup of the site in front of the warming hut. A crew of carpenters was able to install all the windows of the hut. The warming hut is finally all closed in. Watch for the completion of the roof which is the next step in our construction plan.

Many volunteers joined the work party on Sunday morning. A path was opened up in the direction of the Cedars development. A lot of the cut brush, branches and wood scraps were burned during the day. Many thanks to all these volunteers who took the time to drop in and help out!

The work party followed the well attended Great Pumpkin Hunt held on Saturday morning. More than 200 young participants were on hand to find and then to decorate pumpkins of all sizes. Although it was a chilly morning, it was sunny at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre and many had a good time roasting marshmallows and hotdogs on the campfires.

Several voluneers met at the warming hut on Sunday morning. Johnny led the activities: logs were split, the ceiling was stained, insulation was installed inside the hut, a shallow trench was dug around the hut for the insulation panels along the outside and a few elves burned some debris from around the site.

Our goal is to make the warming hut and the area look good for the beginning of the ski season. This was the first of the weekly work bees planned for this month. The next one will be on Sunday, October 11 from 9:30 am to 1 pm. Anyone willing to help out is welcome to join us.

fernie 3 logoThe Fernie 3 Mountain Bike Stage Race is the popular event that ran from June 27 to 29 in and around Fernie. It was a fundraising opportunity for the Nordic Society by taking care of the timing of each race. Several volunteers were on hand each day at the start, mid-point and finish of each course. Fernie TransRockies Society, the local organizer of the event, chose to use a local group for this task rather than an outside contractor.

The event attracted about 160 riders from the region and also from as far as Vancouver, Edmonton, Saskatchewan and Idaho. Racers participated in the 1-day event, the 3-day stage event or the U13-U16 event. An awards ceremony and banquet event was held at the Castle on Monday night with Fernie mayor Mary Giuliano in attendance.

We wish to thank all who participated in our survey back in March when most of the snow was already gone!
Sixty people answered the ten questions. Most answers were from people with a family membership and living in the Elk Valley area. We received very positive results about the Jackrabbit program and the communications from the Nordic Society to the members and visitors. In addition, we read with interest all the comments included with the replies. This will be very useful for the planning of the next season. To read the results in the attached document, just click to open it. Or right-click to download it.
Enjoy the summer season and we will see you at the AGM meeting later in July.
