Smooth Grooves Trails & Tracks Upgrades Fundraiser – Extended!

Nelson Nordic Ski Club needs your help to upgrade our trails this summer and to help us fundraise for future trail expansions and our Andrson Bridge Project!

Our ongoing Nordiq Canada fundraiser is open now! All NNSC donors who contribute to the Nelson Nordic Ski Club through the Nordiq Canada fundraiser link below will receive a tax receipt for their donation.

Wow, what a season! Mother Nature threw a lot at us this year. We moved snow, piled snow, stored snow, buried pallets and even put in a new trail! Canada weather had nothing on our hard-working Grooming Team:)

In the immediate future we want to keep you gliding on your skis no matter what Mother Nature has in store, so, we have been busy planning for some trail upgrades that include: opening up the canopy in some areas, raising and improving drainage on our low lying trails in and around Busk, replacing worn out bridge abutments and grading uneven trails to a smoother finish, which will allow for better grooming during low snow conditions.

That is not all though!

Our long-term goal is to further expand our trail system. This type of large infrastructure project will require a significant amount of Club funds to implement.

Preliminary reviews of future trail expansions possibilities are underway, but no final project area has been determined at this time.

The Club is reviewing the feasibility of expanding along the Hall Siding corridor, and initial plans and estimates for this expansion are upwards of $270k or higher. Alternative areas that connect to our trails are also being investigated.

We have already begun writing grants to secure funds for future expansion projects.
