The Nordic Society set a portable toilet up by the golf course last winter. We would like to know how valuable it is for our members to have during the Jackrabbit lessons. Vote now! No-one will call ;=)
Our program has become so popular that it has reached almost full capacity. Over 80 young skiers have registered already. We can no longer accept any new applications, except for a few openings in the older age group of Track Attack. If you are 12 years or older, contact Clark at 250-430-1582 directly.
As a reminder the first lesson will be on Saturday Dec. 7 starting at 10:30 am. It is planned to be held at the new trails of the Elk Valley Nordic Centre near Mt. Fernie Provincial Park. Bring snacks and a cup for hot chocolate served after the lesson.
This year the great FAST Ski Swap will take place at the Fernie Community Centre on Saturday November 9 from 10 am to 2 pm. If you are on the lookout for some used gear and also some new, it is the place to go.
There is lots of downhill ski equipment and clothing available there although very little nordic ski equipment has been seen there in the previous years. But you never know... Last year the few nordic ski items sold very early in the morning.
On the other hand, if you have gear such as skis and clothing that you would like to sell, just bring it to the centre on Friday evening between 6 and 8 pm. But get for more details about the ski swap here
These organizations are great supporters. Tell them how much you appreciate their support.
We welcome you to Fernie
The Fernie Nordic Society is a non-profit society that officially came into existence in July 2006. Through the monumental efforts of many volunteers, we now have more than 12 kms of pristine groomed Nordic track in one of the world's most spectacular venues. The Fernie Nordic Society now has more than 300 members of all ages and backgrounds. The primary goal of the Fernie Nordic Society is "to provide low cost winter fitness activity to its membership through high quality groomed trails and programming". Through the Jackrabbit development program, the Society now has 65 young skiers - from 4 to 12 year old - improving their skills during the winter season ... and enjoying it!
As visitors arrive into Fernie for its legendary powder skiing in the mountains, the Fernie Nordic Society is proud to offer an alternative activity to enhance their winter enjoyment.
FRESH SNOW means that it is time to get your ski gear ready!
Several local retailers are offering good prices for new gear to Fernie Nordic Society members.
Let's support them! Ask us when you get your membership for this season. With all this new snow it really looks promising.
It is also possible to get rental gear for the day from three locations in Fernie: at Gear Hub and Ski Base in town, and also at Quest at the ski hill. See our page for more details.
