Complete our brief 10-minute member survey by Sunday, May 9, for your chance to WIN one of two adult or senior memberships for the 2021-22 season!

CLICK HERE FOR THE SURVEY

Thanks to the almost 250 people who have already responded to our annual Nelson Nordic Ski Club member survey. We very much appreciate you taking the time to offer your feedback.

We would like input from more of our 1,300 members this year. Whether you’ve been with us for the long haul or it was your first time joining, your feedback and ideas will be invaluable for Board and management as we plan operations for next season and future projects to improve and develop our Club.

If you weren’t a member, but skied or snowshoed at Nelson Nordic this season, we’d like to hear from you, too!

Thank you for participating, and good luck!

THAT’S ALL, FOLKS!

Wow! What a season we have had at Nelson Nordic Ski Club!

As we are starting to see bare patches on some trails, we have made the decision to stop grooming operations, effective today. We are very happy to have been able to extend our Nordic ski season until April 15 this year!

Thanks to our dedicated grooming staff for continuing their nightly excursions well into the spring. Conditions these past few weeks have been quite excellent despite limited snowfall and warm daytime temperatures.

Thanks to all our members for an incredible ski season, under somewhat difficult circumstances presented by the pandemic.

Stay tuned for our member survey in the days to come, for your chance to win great prizes!

TRAILS & GROOMING UPDATE

Good Morning,


As of 07:30AM, conditions at our club is -3 Celsius clear skies and a light breeze. Predicted day time high is +18 Celsius with clear skies to continue.


Alida is grooming this morning and she has completed Clearwater and Busk main and Euphrates. She tells me that the initial hill on Clearwater is icy and thin with some material showing through. She asks that you be very careful on this section. Alida rates the lower section poor, but upper Clearwater is good still. Thanks Alida, and all the groomers for doing such a great job this season.


This is probably my last post, so I would like to take the time to say I had a great time posting the daily updates and I really enjoyed seeing you all while working at the Kiosks this winter. Some of you I have known for years and some I have met for the first time. Everybody has been super positive and I am proud to be connected with this club!

TRAILS & GROOMING UPDATE

April 14, 2021


Good morning,


Conditions at our club as of 07:11Am are -3 Celsius, clear skies and calm winds. Predicted day time high will be +15 Celsius with sunny skies. Wind will become 20km/hr from the north in the afternoon.


Some changes are occurring today for grooming. We are discontinuing grooming of the Apex side, and the first hill on Clearwater. We are continuing to groom the Clearwater Bypass. Clearwater is complete now and is fair/poor lower down and good higher up. Busk main and Euphrates is complete and in fair condition.


This is a poem from 1624 by John Donne, which seems relevant in this Covid world.


No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as any manner of thy friends or of thine own were; any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. And therefore, never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.
