Strathcona Nordics eager to start a new season

The Mount Washington ski club kicks off a new season with several programs for skiiers of every level

The Strathcona Nordic Ski Club (SNSC) is ready for a new season of cross-country skiing. The SNSC, Vancouver Island’s cross-country ski club, has a broad range of programs and events scheduled for the fall and winter.

All programs and events aim to help you prepare for a great season of skiing for fun and fitness on Mount Washington.

On October 1, registration opens online for a wide-range of ski club cross-country ski programs. There are recreational and racing programs for beginner, intermediate, and advanced cross-country skiers from four years of age and up.

On Sat., October 29, you can join the club for its annual cross-country ski gear swap and AGM. You can learn about new developments in the ski club at the AGM, and have the club’s resident expert – on-hand at the swap – help you find the right gear for your style of skiing.

In November and December, the nordic ski club will be holding a variety of NCCP coaching clinics, which are free to club members. Members can gain new skills, knowledge, and confidence as they join the growing ranks of talented volunteer coaches. The club will also be offering a Level 1 Race Officials course on November 5 and 6. This is a great opportunity to become a certified Level 1 race official for Olympic Style and Loppet Style races.

Nordic ski club recreational ski programs will begin on January 7 for Saturday programs and January 8 for Sunday programs. The recreational programs continue for 10 Saturdays and Sundays through to March.

Ski club race programs are already underway with skiers training for a busy winter race schedule.
