The Strathcona Nordics have programs for all ages and abilities of skiers

Strathcona Nordics gearing up for good season of cross-country skiing

The Strathcona Nordics are optimistic that – as in years past – El Nino will bring optimal snow conditions once again for cross-country skiing on Mount Washington.

Registration is open for the club’s winter programs, and they say, “Register now because the last day for early-bird prices on program fees is Oct. 31.”

The Strathcona Nordics, Vancouver Island’s cross-country ski club, have programs for all ages and abilities of skiers. Their recreational programs run for 10 weeks starting on Jan. 16 and are designed to get you skiing for fun and fitness with a group of peers for two hours every Saturday or Sunday morning.

You can also join the Strathcona Nordics for their annual Ski Swap and AGM on Nov. 7 at Queneesh Elementary in Courtenay. Everyone is welcome. Visit the StrathconaNordics.com for more information about events and programs.
