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.

Annual Pumpkin Hunt 2023

Join Nelson Nordic’s Track Attack and Junior Racers at our popular annual Pumpkin Hunt to raise funds for our youth ski programs!

We will hide 150 pumpkins in our Enchanted Forest. Children 12 years and under are invited to hunt for a pumpkin, with our ski team athletes to guide them into the forest. FUN for the whole family!

Rubber Boots are recommended:)

Admission of $20 includes one pumpkin, two hot chocolates and 2 cookies.

In order to spread out participants and make it a fun and safe event, we will have three sessions, one beginning at 10:00 am, second at 10:30 am, and third at 11:00 am.  All tickets must be purchased online in advance at nelsonnordicski.square.site

**Please remember to bring your own mug for hot chocolate and your own drinking water. Special thanks to our generous local sponsors; Save-On-Foods, Safeway, Kootenay Coop, Oso Negro and Kootenay Bakery!

We look forward to seeing you out at the Nelson Nordic Apex trailhead on Sunday, October 22. Rain or shine!
