The Snow Valley Nordic Club hosted its 2011 open house Jan. 2 with great success.
More than 200 adults and children came to check out the trails at Onion Lake.
“It was awesome, everyone, we had a wonderful time,” said Liz Thorne, president for the club.
According to Thorne there were a lot of new faces at the open house, including families looking for a fun, inexpensive activity that can be done as a group.
Rentals for the event were supposed to cost $2, but ended up being given out for free.
There were a variety of instructors on hand, offering lessons as well as guided tours.
People were also welcome to venture out on their own, and children played in the snow in the stadium.
The club provided hot chocolate, apple cider, and coffee, as well as a variety of baked goods.
Thorne said the event was one of the friendliest she had been too, and resulted in a lot of memberships sold for the club.
