KNC hosting Nordic Fest March 1

Kimberley Nordic Club (KNC) is hosting the first-ever ‘Nordic Fest’ to celebrate Nordic skiing in its many forms on Sunday, March 1.

This fun day on snow is a public celebration of skiing to bring our Nordic community together. This full day of activities will include a wide range of activities for the public young and old. Everyone between ages from four to 84 can participate and rental gear is available to get newcomers on snow.

Thanks to a viaSport Winter Spirit Grant, all activities are FREE and include a complimentary trail pass for non-members if you sign up using this form! Trail fees apply to all other users.

Salomon Demon Day: The public can try a range of new equipment, learn about different varieties and buy gear from local retailers who will be onsite.

Ski Orienteering: The day starts with a ski orienteering event, which allows skiers of different ages to follow a mapped course through the trails.

BBQ Lunch: Fundraiser for junior rental skis with burgers and hot dogs.

Kids Relays: In the afternoon, there are Bavarian Relays for kids four to 12. These station activities encourage new skiers to work their way through a variety of fun activities on skis with their peers. Rentals will be available for kids who are new to Nordic skiing.

Adult Lessons: Adults who are new to skiing will be able to get complimentary rentals and trail passes and try a lesson with a certified instructor.

Interpretive Ski: Families who are interested in nature can join an interpretive forest ski on the quiet single track trails.

Wax Clinic: Join our head coach to learn more about getting the most out of your skis.

Plus: There will be music, local sports retailers, grooming equipment on display, and a bonfire for marshmallow roasting.
