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

Click here to go to the registration page on Zone 4.

Early bird registration ends October 31/2017! Program rates and dates for 2017/18 will be up soon. For all inquiries email info@nickelplatenordic.org

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.
