The cost of a new grooming machine is $327,000 after we trade in our current machine. We now have more than one-third of that amount secured through the club’s capital reserve and donations.
Our fundraising campaign is well underway and with the recent addition of one very generous donation we are changing our goal to reflect more reliance on donations and slightly less on grant money – which gives us an even greater chance of reaching our goal!
Please donate generously to our club fundraiser and help us reach our final goal! The more money we are able to raise through donations, the fewer Club reserves will need to be spent on this necessary equipment upgrade.
As you know, Nelson Nordic Ski Club is a non-profit community resource for members and non-members alike – we offer courses for over 900 schoolchildren annually through our popular School Outreach Program plus other youth and adult programs. We are also a draw for winter tourists, offering 26km of beautiful groomed track – and this helps support many other businesses in Nelson and area.
More than 350 members have already taken a moment to share their input about the recent Nordic season. If you have already completed the survey, you’ve been entered in a draw for a free membership for the 2020-2021 ski season! Thank you!
If you haven’t yet done so, please don’t miss your opportunity to share your thoughts with us. Average completion time for the survey is about 8 minutes. The survey will close on Sunday, April 26, 2020.
As the Board and management begin to plan for next season, we would love to get your input on a number of aspects of the work that we do.
As a token of our gratitude for your participation, all current Club members who complete the survey by the deadline will be entered in a draw for two (2) complimentary Adult (or Senior) Memberships for the 2020-2021 ski season!
Thanks for your participation! We look forward to seeing you again next season!
Nelson Nordic Ski Club would like to thank all our members, staff and volunteers for an excellent 2019-2020 nordic ski season.
Due to ongoing concerns related to Covid-19 and social distancing, we have decided to close the trails at the end of business today. We will not be grooming the trails any further this season.
We’d like to extend a huge and special thank you to all the volunteers who have donated an enormous amount of time and energy to support Club operations, youth programs, special events organization, fundraising and grant writing, mechanical support, parking lot marshalling, food preparation and much more! This club would not exist but for the incredible contributions of its dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers, year after year! THANK YOU!
We are sad to be closing in the midst of a pandemic, when we can’t congregate to say thank you in person, but we hope that we can offer each and every one of you a big virtual hug for your services and commitment to the organization. You’re in our thoughts. Please stay healthy and safe over the coming weeks and months and we look forward to enjoying real connection with you sometime again before too long.
The Club would also like to take a moment to thank its sponsors for their ongoing support and generosity. These local businesses offer tremendous support to our Club. Please consider supporting them, especially during this difficult time:
