Nelson Nordic Ski Club Statement on COVID-19

First and foremost, health and safety is a primary concern for Nelson Nordic Ski Club. 

We continue to follow updates on the COVID-19 pandemic, and while we have no further programs or organized events scheduled for this season, the NNSC Executive Board wishes to confirm our commitment to provide ongoing grooming of our trails for our membership and community. 

It is, however, essential that we all follow guidance from Interior Health Authority on how best to protect ourselves and others from the spread of this virus. First, if you feel sick or are in self-isolation for any reason, please refrain from using the Club and the trail system. Additional efforts are being made by staff to sanitize common areas. For the safety of our staff and volunteers, we are taking measures to minimize direct contact with skiers and ask all non-members to deposit trail use fees (cash or cheque) in one of the depositories located at the sign-in kiosks at Apex and Busk trailheads. If you do not have exact change, it is permissible to put a cheque in the depository instead of cash.  

How you can help:

  • Bring personal hand sanitizer with you if you intend to use outhouses, cabins and hut.
  • Minimize social gatherings at the Apex hut, warming cabins(Euphrates & Clearwater), kiosks and trailheads.
  • Practice social distancing by keeping at least 2 metres away from others.
  • Be respectful of others.

We will continue to update you if stronger measures are necessary. In the meantime, enjoy the trails!
