Strathcona Nordics get a kick out of May camp on Mount Washington

THE STRATHCONA NORDICS enjoyed their spring training camp on Mount Washington.

The Strathcona Nordic Ski Club (SNSC) recently kicked off summer training with their annual May Camp on Mount Washington. This year they had their largest turnout of racers ever – drawing from communities across Vancouver Island. The group was made up of young peewees through seasoned masters, and coaches Dave Battison, Tim McGrady, and Berend Henckel led them through four days of workouts. Each workout began with a hard Nordic ski climb up the Mount Washington slopes to access the groomed trails.  SNSC racers not only skied together but also enjoyed camaraderie, communal cooking, and a few practical jokes. Most racers won’t train on snow again until next season, so they’ll be strapping on their roller skis and hitting the trails to continue their 11-month training program.
