The Skill Development Program (SDP) offered to our young skiers by the Fernie Nordic Society was actually developed by the nation-wide organization Cross Country Canada. The program is standardized across the country. All our volunteer coaches are trained according to the established structure to provide a consistent level of training to our skiers.

Great participation at the Pumpkin Hunt

November 1, 2017 - 16:08

The Elk Valley Nordic Centre near Fernie was again this year the site of our 3rd Annual Great Pumpkin Hunt event. An event open to the community just ahead of the ski season. The weather was very favorable on this Saturday morning of October 21. Three hundred pumpkins had been hidden in the bushes and among the fallen leaves by club volunteers. At 11:30 the hunt was on for a great number of boys and girls aged up to 9. Two firepits were set up on the site for roasting marshmallows and wieners. Hot chocolate and coffee kept the young pumpkin hunters and their parents warm. All appeared to enjoy the event. Several photos of the event appeared on Facebook later that weekend.

The Fernie Nordic Society wishes to thank our sponsors for their support: Grow Children's Boutique, Save-On-Foods, Teck, Giv'er Shirts, Starbucks and Mr Allan Phillips

New in the warming hut, an iron gate for the wood stove just in time for the winter. It was designed and made by the Fernie Forge.
