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

Cross Country BC (CCBC) is running a contest this year to see which club has the highest percentage increase in season pass membership over last season. Many great prizes have been donated for the winning clubs in each of the divisions (which are grouped by size based on last year’s numbers).

If Nickel Plate Nordic is one of the winning clubs, those who purchased a membership by December 1, 2016 will be eligible to win a draw prize.

For your chance to win, sign up for a Nickel Plate Membership by 11:59 PM November 30, 2016. NOTE: Early bird pricing for Nickel Plate memberships ends October 31, 2016.

Thanks to fundraising efforts, Nickel Plate has raised approximately $14,000 towards the purchase of new parking lot grooming, light grooming, and regular grooming equipment. We would like to acknowledge those who have supported fundraising by organizing and attending the Banff Mountain Film Festival ($6,135 raised); donations made to Nickel Plate when registering on Zone4 over the past two seasons; and general donations. Nickel Plate is halfway to our fundraising goal for this grooming equipment. We are excited to be able to participate in a new fundraising opportunity!

There is matching money up for grabs to help our ski club – please help us get it!

Background: A number of passionate XC skiers across BC are generously donating to a Community Pot. The majority of this pot will be allocated equally among any BC clubs that want to participate, to match up to 25% of what each club raises themselves in this fundraiser. If a club leaves any of its Community Pot allocation on the table, there will be more to go around for the other clubs.

So, the Community Pot has got the ball rolling, but now it’s up to us to step up to the challenge!

We can use the funds for sport development, such as skier development programs, trails & facilities, and grooming equipment. Although funds may not be earmarked for an individual athlete, funds can be used towards a coach or coordinator’s stipend or wage. (Note that a donor cannot receive special consideration in return for their donation, such as a discounted/free membership, a program/trip discount for their child, etc.)

Donations are tax deductible and you will receive a tax receipt.

This campaign ends on November 30, 2016 at midnight, at which time the Community Pot will also be divvied up… just in time for ski season!

Thank you for your interest and generosity. Let’s see what our club can do! Nickel Plate Board members have started the ball rolling by donating. Donate here: to the BC Club Challenge: canadianolympicfoundation.akaraisin.com/CrossCountryBC
