Job Posting: Club Manager

The RNSC is also looking for a new club manager for the upcoming season.  Job details are posted on our website.


Trail Brushing

There will be a trail brushing party on Saturday, October 21st.  The work that our volunteer crews perform on our trails each year make our trails easier to groom and easier to ski, especially in the early season.  If you’d like to come out and help, please contact Duane Dukart at [email protected] or you can text him at 250-814-4560.

Strategic Planning
: A note from the Executive

Last year, the board was successful in receiving a grant for some strategic planning for our club.  This year, we have started a process to review our club operations to help us design a plan that will strengthen and shape the RNSC in the years ahead.  You will hear more about this process in the months ahead, and we look forward to your input.

Thanks for reading!
