There is still time to sign up for a Nordic sit ski clinic organized by the Vancouver Island Society for Adpative Snowsports and the Strathcona Nordics Ski Club.

Would you like to get out in the snow and enjoy the cross-country trails ? If you have a physical disability that makes regular skiing difficult or impossible you can  join us this Saturday at Mount Washington to try Nordic sit skiing – cross-country skiing sitting down.

All ages are welcome and anyone with reasonable upper body strength and moderate fitness could enjoy this activity. People who take part in this sport include those with paraplegia, MS, cerebral palsy, lower limb amputees, and more.


Cost of the clinic is $20 ($12.50 for DSABC members) which includes trail pass, lift ticket and instruction.To sign up and for more information contact
