Pictures from Angela, Kiosk Staff. Thanks as always. Skiing conditions are getting better at KNC. It is no longer icey and slick. Some amounts of snow have fallen over the week and grooming has been done. We sometimes only need small amounts of snow to make a fairly big difference in skiing conditions. Kimberley Nordic Racers, Track Attack skiers and Masters have all been out skiing lots this week. Most skiers are reporting conditions fair to good on most trails. The Jackrabb
Kimberley Nordic Club has just taken another step in providing members with more information about the ski conditions at KNC. We have just installed a LIVE Web Cam with the help of new Board Member Tony Hetu and Derm Kennedy (and maybe others that should credit too). Thank you for your efforts for KNC. Always appreciated. The LIVE Web Cam is mounted at the top of the chalet peak and looks out over the area in front. Good view. It is Live Streaming, you can look for your frein
OPEN.!! Our industrious Ginzu groomer has been out yesterday and this morning to groom the "firm" base and has scarified the skate track somewhat and set a 5 km classic single track loop. Skiers have been out and are reporting " hard and fast" conditions but skiable. With the colder overnight temps we are hanging into most of our base... but everyone out there do your snow dance !! Just a bit of snow will bring us back into good shape. It is currently 1c degree, high overcas
Sometimes KNC is not sure what to do about recommending skiing for our members. It got warm, got soft, froze up and is now icey. Skiing conditions are not good. You can ski but it is not for beginners. The snow is thin is some areas and the classic tracks are fast and slippery. Skate skiing can be OK but only for the experienced. Ski at your own risk. Everyone, cross your fingers for more snow...and we will do our best to groom what we have and make it skiable if we can. We w
Rain, rain go away. Come again another day...like maybe April. Hi all, I have talked with Wayne Gilbert and decided we should temporarily close the trails until further notice i.e. conditions cool down and we get some fresh snow. I think we should save what little base we have. Night time temperatures were above zero last night and the snow base is very soft. Temperatures tonight should drop somewhat but we all need to keep our fingers crossed. The daytime temperatures may b
Coach Frank was of course out training with a number of young athletes this past weekend. Here is a picture of two of the athletes from the top of the New Upper Landsem trail with the great view behind. Great skiing for classic and skate both days this weekend, more than a few Larch needles to be seen. A little snow, 5 cm, came Monday morning to help out cover them. Grip skis and Skin skis are working great these days. Grip waxing was a little tricky over the weekend. Skate
Skiing is great and groomed again by the Big Cat. Great base, no bare spots and lots of sunshine. Kimberley Nordic is waiting for you and your skis. Earliest snow in the Valley. We ARE lucky. This young skier is ready to get out in the great outdoors. You can be too. See you out there !
Kimberley Nordic has now been open and groomed for skiing since Nov. 3rd, 2017. Crazy. New trail work has been done this year including this gem, Upper Landsem, a new cut trail going up off Landsem towards Moe's Canyon. It goes up a ways, it is a climb, but the reward at the top is well worth it. Here is a couple of pics...but go see for yourself. Groomed and ready to go. This will be a great weekend for cross country skiing at KNC. We got lucky, we got snow early. Not many p
New snow at KNC again and our season base in getting bigger. Over 500 members and families have already registered for their seasons passes, almost half our last years membership already. Nice. New trail work was done this year to change some trails, widen some trails, bank some corners and even put in a whole new trail, Upper Landsem. It is a challenging climb but they say it has spectacular views that make the climb very worth while. I will post pictures tomorrow from the t
It is that time of year again! Tell your friends and come and join us for registration and socializing with old and hopefully new friends. We have a great program planned with some new instructors to introduce. Come out and join all friends and ask any questions you have about what we do, how we do it and how you can improve your skiing fun and fitness. Skate and classic are both fun. Hope to see everyone Nov 21 and or the 23rd. KNC Masters.
