Thank you for a great 2018-19 Nordic season! A special thank you to all of our volunteer members who donated so much of their time to support the Busk kiosk operations, youth programs coaching, special events organization, parking lot marshalling and food preparation/serving! We couldn’t have done it without you!
Please stay tuned for our season wrap up newsletter and survey to be released early next week.
Also please save the date for the NNSC Open House on a proposed design for a new Nordic Lodge!! The meeting will be held at the Railtown Nelson Visitors Centre (upstairs) 90 Baker Street, Nelson Monday May 6th, 6:30 to 8:30pm.
Due to the rapidly warming temperatures and lack of snow in the forecast the plan is for grooming with the snowcat to end March 31st. We will continue to touch up trails with the sled and ginzu until April 7th (conditions permitting).
The sun is shining and spring is coming but there’s still plenty of great Nordic skiing to be had!!
Trail conditions have been optimal for skate skiing before 11am and for classic skiing in the newly set track. Older Classic tracks will improve with warmer temperatures and are typically less iced up after 11am.
Our grooming staff have been careful to groom trails after freeze up to avoid iced skate lanes and classic tracks. Re-setting of classic tracks will be limited to 2-5km of trails/shift due to the lack of new snow and melt during the day.
We encourage members to make the most of your membership and adjust your schedule to get out on the trails before noon. Day pass guests, the Apex kiosk is open at 9:30am and Busk kiosk opens at 9am and both remain open for day pass sales until 3pm daily. Skiers can always register and pay at the vault after hours.
Please check our live grooming page daily for the latest on what has been groomed and where the best conditons are to be found.
