Work on trails at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre

2 hours 22 min ago

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.

Skiing and fun time on a rainy morning

January 12, 2014 - 16:59

The Saturday morning lesson was replaced by a quick run on the trails under light rain. The brave souls who joined in were in great spirits as you can see on the photos. It was raining even more by the time the hot chocolate from Freshie's was served. All are hoping for clear weather for next weekend!

Trails at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre are open!

January 4, 2014 - 15:02

Enough snow fell in the region during the last 24 hours. The trails at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre were groomed last night. On Saturday morning the trails were bathed in bright sunshine. The trees were covered with fresh snow. It was so peaceful even with the trails being only 3 km outside town.

Our Jackrabbit skiers had their first lesson on the new trails. Most of the eighty young skiers attended this morning. There is plenty of variety in the terrain with flat sections, small hills and a few more challenging ones. All had lots of fun! This promises to be a great season of crosscountry ski.

We would like to thank Freshie's of Fernie for supplying the hot chocolate the skiers enjoyed after the lesson. We ran out early but we'll do better next week! Back to school on Monday and see you at the next lesson!
