Revelstoke Nordic is hosting an annual lantern ski, (modified due to Covid) on Saturday evening and we expect a large number of visitors to the club during the evening, as such, please do not leave valuables in the stadium area or wax tents. 
  2. Families visiting are welcome to ski but would require day passes to be purchased. Racers pass included in race fee.

Hello Nordic Folk!

The snow keeps coming and trails are in great shape! We hope you are all hitting stride with your season, and we want to thank-you for supporting the RNSC. We want all of our members and guests to enjoy their experience in the outdoors (or indoors at our lodge), and we can’t run our club without your support. Here’s the news for the weeks ahead:

 

Strategic Planning Survey: 5 days left to have your say!

We want you to help shape the direction for our club in the years ahead so don’t forget to provide your input in the strategic planning survey before the end of the month. The survey will take about 15 minutes of your time, and it will ask you about your thoughts and your priorities for the future of the RNSC. Thank-you for your input in the process. You can use this link, or go to www.revelstokenordic.org for more information. Please share this link with your family members and friends who might like to provide their input in our survey. Thanks!

 

Free Rentals for U16 Continues in February

The RNSC is happy to announce that we are extending our free-rental program for youth aged 16 and under. Come out and try skate or classic skis and get to know the fun of Nordic skiing! Tell your friends!

 

Team Scream is February 10th

Check out the information poster, and pre-register for the race with our online form. As you can tell by the poster (thanks, Rob Buchanan!), this is a super-fun, free event for all club members.

 

The RNSC is hosting BC

The RNSC is hosting the BC Midget Championships on March 3 and 4, 2018. This is a provincial level 2-day race that draws approximately 250 young athletes and their families from all over the BC. To help you with your planning, the RNSC wants you to know that it will be a very busy weekend at the club and the parking lot will probably be full. We will be sending out more details about the weekend as the dates approach. If you want to be part of our volunteer squad and help with the race, please email Natalie MacLeod at simpsonnatalie1@gmail.com

See you on the trails!

Hello Nordic folk!

Welcome to all our members, young and old, new and legacy.  We hope that you are having a great season so far, and we want to remind you that all of the Nordic News emails are posted on our website along with many other items.

Strategic Planning Survey:  Deadline is Jan 31st!

We want you to help shape the direction for our club in the years ahead so don’t forget to provide your input in the strategic planning survey before the end of the month.  There is a link to the survey on the homepage of our website,

The survey will take about 15 minutes of your time, and it will ask you about your thoughts and your priorities for the future of the RNSC.  Thank-you for your input in the process

Headlamp Heroes: No Race this Week!

There was a Headlamp Heroes race scheduled for this Wednesday, but the January 24th race has been cancelled.  It is exam week for all of our high school students and Matt, our head coach extraordinaire and HH host, is away at the World Juniors in Europe supporting Canada’s XC athletes.  We may find a date in March to reschedule this race. The next two HH Races are February 7th and February 28th.

 

Parking

The RNSC is aware of some of the pressures on our parking lot.  For the time being, we want to remind members that we should have 4 ‘lanes’ for parking in the main portion of our parking lot, two outside rows and two rows of cars in the middle.  We also want to thank-you for car pooling when you can.

 

Dog Incidents

The RNSC is a dog-friendly club with one of the best dog loops in the province.  We also have a user-enforced dog policy to ensure that our trails are enjoyable for all members.  If you ever have difficulty with a dog (in the parking lot or on our trails), please let the lodge manager know.  For this or any other issue, you can email manager@revelstokenordic.org

We also hope that you have read the RNSC Dog Policy, especially if you have a dog that enjoys our trails.

BC Midgets: Volunteers Needed!

The RNSC is hosting the Midget Championships on March 3 and 4, 2018.  This is a provincial level 2-day race that draws approximately 250 young athletes and their families from all over the BC.  Midgets is a race for skiers ages 9-12 with a focus on participation and FUN!  In addition to a classic interval race, skate sprints and a dress-up relay race, there will be an athlete lunch and awards banquet.  This large-scale event requires tremendous volunteer support.  We will need approximately 70-80 volunteers each day and we would love it if you could lend a hand.   Please email Natalie MacLeod at simpsonnatalie1@gmail.com

Free Rentals for Youth Under 16

Free rentals continue until the end of January.  We hope this will encourage more young people to have fun on skis.  Please share this news with your friends.

 

Enjoy your January!

Cheers!
