On Saturday, January 25, the community came out in large numbers to support our annual Tour de Soup. This year’s event was a great success, with more than 120 skiers raising donations of just over $490 to be split between our Nelson Nordic Ski Club Junior Racing Team and the Nelson Community Food Centre! Thank you to all who participated and donated!

Conditions were excellent on the trails and delicious gourmet soup was enjoyed in each of our three warming cabins: Apex, Euphrates and Clearwater.

Nelson Nordic Ski Club owes a debt of gratitude to the volunteers who organized such a fun community fundraiser: Jennifer, Brooke, Margo, Frances, Lois, Bob, Peter, Lisa and Ron L, Ron B and Katie! Thank you for your generous dedication of time and energy to make it happen!

We also greatly appreciate the donations of piping hot soup from the following local eateries: Yum SonMain Street DinerKootenay Co-opFinley’s Bar & Grill and the Selkirk College Culinary Program. Thank you for supporting our community!
