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.

A motion was passed at the Nickel Plate 2016 AGM in relation to volunteer hours. Nickel Plate’s success is due to the efforts of volunteers. There are a relatively few members who do the great majority of the work. In order to encourage more participation from the membership, we would like to request that all individual members commit to providing 2 hours (or 4 hours per family) of volunteer work during the season. However, members can also opt out of this by paying an additional fee to the club; $25/individual and $50/family. This choice would be made during the enrollment process on Zone4, and administered by a yet to be announced Volunteer Coordinator.
