Nickel Plate Nordic Centre: Okanagan Valley’s World Class Nordic Ski Destination

Thank you to all those who helped to organize the recent skiathon fundraising event on Saturday, March 4, with a special appreciation to the parents of the Junior Racers. A special thank you to our sponsors who provided the prizes – Fresh Air Experience, The Bike Barn and True Outdoors. A huge thank you to those who supported us – over $3500 has been raised, with all funds going to Nickel Plate Nordic facilities and programs. As a non-profit club, fundraising events such as these are essential to keeping our facility going!

We skied a total of 578 KM in 2 hours – and that was done by 22 kids in the Skill Development Program, 9 kids from the Nickel Plate Junior Racers, and 14 parents.

Membership prize draw update: Nickel Plate did not finish in first place and won’t receive any of the prizes, but our club membership size has increased compared to this time last year! Thank you to those of you who registered early.

From Cross-Country BC: almost every club is ahead of where it was at on this day last year! 22 clubs are already at more than 80% of last year’s total membership, and 9 of those have already exceeded it. A few clubs are approaching their all-time membership record, and one has already broken it.

Happy Skiing!
