Last Saturday was another Skill Development Program lesson for 46 young skiers at the Nordic Centre.
The new Family Friendly Ski event followed on Sunday afternoon at 4 pm. We inaugurated the new and very long string of lights along the kids loop by the staging area. A fun place to ski after dark! About twenty adult skiers participated in the event as well as a few children either on dad’s back or in a chariot. The trails were well groomed and the skiing was great!
The January 25-26 weekend was also the time for our Fernie Nordic Racers to shine at the Teck Kootenay Cup in Nipika.
Twenty racers from Fernie completed the classic races on Saturday and 17 did the skate races on Sunday. In total the racers received 9 podium positions. Three young racers did amazingly well in their first cross country ski race ever. The trails were well groomed and track set although hard and very icy. Good participation by our young racing team and several adults from Fernie.
The Family Friendly Ski is coming up! This Sunday is an opportunity for anyone, kids, adults, families, to ski on the trails of the Nordic Centre. Meet at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre at 4 pm for a group ski for all ages. Headlamps may not be needed! Free for members, day pass required for non-members.
A great evening is planned at the Fernie Golf Course this Saturday January 11 starting at 7 pm. The trails just opened and skiing should be excellent after all the snow that Fernie received this week! Bring a headlamp to ski from the clubhouse.
Our next event is planned for Saturday January 11 at 19:00 at the Fernie Golf Course. The trails on the golf course should be open with some cooperation from the weather gods. This event is open to ALL ages. Come and ski under the stars and the full moon – bring a headlamp! The Cast Iron Grill will be open and a special menu will be offered for this occasion.
