Hello to all crosscountry skiers!

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.

On Saturday morning, a group of volunteers started to work on the warming hut while the Jackrabbit lessons were going on a little farther down on the trails of the Elk Valley Nordic Centre. They installed a door at one end of the hut, wrapped the entire hut and covered all the openings with poly ... this last one is temporary of course. At least the hut is now somewhat wind-proofed!
Next will come the installation of a wood stove. And further in the future ... real windows? some siding? Stay tuned!
Thank you to all the volunteers who participated in this work party with their time and tools.
