To Sovereign Lake with a Punch Pass

This short piece was submitted by club member Jan Kron following her latest ski excursion
This year we decided to break up winter a bit by buying the BC Punch Pass offered by Crosscountry BC.  There are 3 different options when buying the pass but we chose the ‘Ski twice at a total of 7 different British Columbia Nordic Centres’ for $89 each. Our first venture is a trip to Sovereign Lake Nordic Club with the reputation of being one of the top clubs in BC. Sovereign Lake has 50 km of daily groomed trails (105 if combined with Silver Star Ski Resort trails) and about double the membership of Fernie.

The Nordic Centre was a very busy place last weekend with two days of races of the Kootenay Cup series. Sixty-one racers braved the cold on Saturday and forty-nine did it again on Sunday in even more frigid temperatures. The young and adult racers came from Rossland, Nelson, Invermere, Golden, Canmore, Montana and Fernie for the event. Can you recognize the local participants and racers from Fernie?

Upcoming nordic events

SNOW! Yay, it's so good to see that white stuff falling from the sky and accumulating on the ground. Our volunteer groomers are going to be busy this week both at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre and at the Fernie Golf and Country Club - not yet open for skiing - packing and grooming for both classic and skate skiing.
