Beat the winter blahs with Nordics

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did you know cross-country skiing is a great way to improve your fitness and mental health this winter?

Cross-country skiing uses all your muscle groups (legs, arms, and core) and your cardiovascular system, and because it’s low-impact, you can exercise for extended periods of time. Cross-country skiing also offers many other health benefits associated with gliding through snowy meadows and forests in fresh mountain air.

The Strathcona Nordic Ski Club (SNSC) is Vancouver Island’s cross-country ski club. They base their activities in Mount Washington's Nordic Area. The SNSC would like to help you keep fit and beat the winter blahs, and they say they have a program for everyone.

Barb Kelly, SNSC director of communications says, “We have excellent programs for beginner, intermediate, and advanced skiers; for children, youth, and adults; for recreational and racers; for paranordic skiers... we really do have programs for everyone.”

SNSC recreational programs run for 10 weeks starting Saturday, Jan. 12. Register for winter programs before Nov. 30 to take advantage of early bird prices. Learn more at StrathconaNordics.com.
