Strathcona Nordics preparing for new season

Gear swap and AGM scheduled for Nov. 5 at Queneesh Elementary

Race you to the Nordics gear swap and sale!

The Strathcona Nordics would like to take you skiing every weekend this winter. The club’s skier development programs offer a set of 10 weekly sessions where you can work on cross-country ski skills in a fun atmosphere with a group of peers and develop the confidence to tackle the trails for the first time or to take yourself to the next level.

They have programs for beginner, intermediate, and advanced skiers; for children, youth, and adults; and for recreational skiers and racers.

The Strathcona Nordics recreational programs begin on Jan. 10-11 in the Nordic area of Mount Washington – but they say, “Don’t delay in registering – programs usually fill up before the Dec. 31 deadline.”

You can also join the Strathcona Nordics for their annual Ski Swap and AGM on Nov. 5 at Queneesh Elementary in Courtenay. Everyone is welcome. Visit the website, StrathconaNordics.com for more information about events and programs.
