Trail-Brushing Work Party

Date: Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 22nd & 23rd

This weekend we will be doing our annual brushing of the Macpherson Nordic ski trail network.  In addition to brushing, we may also have some other trail work to do, such as pruning of tree limbs around the light posts on Mickey’s Loop, moving some rocks off the trails, repairing trail signs, etc.

No special skills are required!

Brushing extends our season at both ends, and makes the grooming easier too. Brush saws are easy and safe to operate.

Meet at Nordic Day Lodge at 9:00am on Saturday Oct. 22nd and/or Sunday Oct. 23rd

What to bring:  warm clothes, work boots, gloves, water.

What’s provided:  brush saws, fuel and safety equipment, fresh baked goodies and coffee!

Please RSVP to Jeff Ferguson at  jfergs@gmail.com or 250-814-9304 so we know how many people to expect.

Thank you,

Revelstoke Nordic Executive

Photo contest for the new brochure!

What is your favourite thing about skiing at the Macpherson Ski Trails with the Revelstoke Nordic Club?  Capture it in a photo and it could end up on the front of the new brochure!  We are updating the brochure, and thought we would put it to you to find a photo that really says, “I love nordic skiing here, want to join?!”

So get out the cameras, because the GRAND PRIZE for the photo that ends up on the font is an ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP for 2016-17 (value of $150).

Submit photos to info@revelstokenordic.org.  Include your name in the file name.

But submitting one or many photos, you are granting permission for the club to use the photo in the future on posters, in publications, the website, other social media sites, and advertising purposes.  We will credit you when the photo gets used for these purposes.
