Cross-country ski season will take of early

The Snow Valley Nordic club will be seeing an early start to its season, says president Liz Thorne.

The Snow Valley Nordic club will be seeing an early start to its season, says president Liz Thorne.

This is due to the heavy snowfall in the area recently, which Thorne explains has resulted in about four feet of packed snow in front of the lodge.

Members of the club have been busy getting the trails groomed, something that is taking a while because of the sheer volume of snow.

“We are going to have an amazing base when we finish,” Thorne said of the trails, which also have fallen trees on them that need to be removed.

Thorne said barring another heavy snowfall, the 30 km network of trails at Onion Lake, where the Snow Valley Nordic club has its home base, should be open and ready for skiers this weekend.

“This is pretty unusual,” Thorne said of the club’s early start to the season.

The club will host its open house Jan. 7, and invites returning skiers or anyone interested in the sport of cross-country skiing to come and check it out.

At the open house, rentals will be available for $1 per hour and coaches will be on-hand to offer free lessons.

Thorne said the club has also increased the volume of rentals available.

Anyone interested in more information on the Snow Valley Nordic Club can check out its website, where season registration is also available.
