We’re looking forward to seeing you here in Revelstoke on Saturday Dec 17 2022.

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.

Greetings Nordic Folk!
It’s a big weekend at our club as we are hosting an OK Cup for racers of all ages from around our region.  If you are a racer or the parent of a racer, you have probably already read the race notice.  If you are not racing, please be sure to read the details in this letter because things will busy at the RNSC!
Okanagan Cup XC Race Starts Tomorrow! 

There are two days of races (Feb 11-12th), and while this promises to be lots of fun for everyone, there will be heavy traffic on the trails and in the parking lot.  There will be parking lot attendants there to help, and please be aware that only vehicles with 4 or more passengers will be allowed to use the parking lot.

The RNSC runs on volunteer power.  In advance of the big race this weekend, we want to thank the race organizers and the volunteers who will line the race course for their contributions and preparations.  We also want to thank the ski league volunteers and our volunteer coaches who give their time on weeknights and weekends to make Nordic skiing fun (and fast!) for our club members.
