Our Skill Development Program for young skiers is now full!

October 22, 2014 - 19:04

Our greatest thanks to our membership for the early enrollment of our young skiers into the Jackrabbit program. A number of adults have become volunteer coaches and the program is now full. It was the Nordic Society's goal to assign a certain number of skiers to each volunteer coach in order to promote better learning of skills. If you missed this registration, you may consider volunteering as a coach as well. The next training session to become coach will be held in Invermere on Nov 1 to 3 and the fee is paid by the Fernie Nordic Society. For details, contact Clark at info@fernienordic.com

Forty young skiers attended the gear fitting session this past Saturday. If you are registered in the gear rental scheme and you missed the event, do not despair. There will be another session during the next week. Watch for an email to announce the time and place.

Work on trails at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre

October 21, 2014 - 20:19

Work on the trails of the Nordic Centre is still under way. The trails beyond the Lizard Creek are now accessible since the installation of the bridge last week. We walked the trail system on Monday taking a few pictures along the way. Enjoy the virtual tour without getting your boots stuck in the mud. A few photos are blurry - sorry about that.

The bridge is now in place at Lizard Creek

October 17, 2014 - 22:53

The long proposed bridge at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre is now installed. This new structure was assembled last week. It will connect approximately four kilometers of additional trails to the current 3.5 km of the Nordic Centre by crossing the Lizard Creek. The bridge will make it possible to access the future trail to the Fernie Alpine Resort.







An article was published at Fernie.com and it includes several photos taken during the construction.

AGM meeting held at the Aquatic Centre in Fernie

July 20, 2014 - 21:38

The yearly AGM meeting of the fernie Nordic Society was held for the first time in the park next to the Aquatic Centre on Sunday afternoon. The event included a BBQ set up by the volunteers as well as a team of competent handlers to occupy the youngest members during the meeting portion.

Each board members reported on his/her activities during the season. Several directors were re-elected and a few new ones were chosen.

The president of the society, Megan Lohmann, outlined the future plans for the club including the expansion of the trail system at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre to be ready before the first snow fall.

The efforts of each volunteer coach were recognized and each coach was presented with an insulated bottle and a gift certificate. We wish to thank all our volunteers and all those who attended the event. We are now getting ready for the new 2014-2015 season !

Finally: Consider becoming a volunteer this year for coaching, to help with an event, to write on this site... whatever.

A draft report from the treasurer is available below.
