New year coming and so is the annual Torchlight Ski. The three kilometre light loop has the big lights turned off for this evening and your ski is guided by torchlights and candles instead. Always calm at Kimberley Nordic at night. This annual event is a great relaxing way to send off the last year and welcome in the new. Come and join us for appies, treats and hot beverages in the lodge after your ski. And a bonus this year the moon will be almost full on this night too. It
I will NEVER get tired of saying this...WINTER WONDERLAND out there at Kimberley Nordic. It just doesn't get any prettier than this. NOTHING is prettier than snow covered trees and landscape. Pictures of our special place by Susanne and Derm Kennedy. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays again...from KNC. And Happy Skiing to Everyone.
A few pictures from the Top of the new Upper Landsem Trail from Keith King. NICE views, CLEAR day. It's worth the climb. I hope everyone gets a chance to get out skiing over the holidays. Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays from KNC.
NEW this year the B.C. Punch Pass. A great way to explore tons of other ski clubs across B.C. Sign up through Zone4 or get yours at the KNC Kiosk, (available now at the Kiosk). This also is seven ski days for $49 at Kimberley Nordic too...and the pass can be used by multiple users. GREAT value for the buck...$7.14 a day ski pass if all used at Kimberley Nordic. And don't forget, invite your B.C. friends to visit Kimberley Nordic too. Get out there, every where this winter.

The annual Kootenay Cup is coming up in January,. It is one of the key events of the season at Kimberley Nordic. Plans are well under way for another great event this year. Last year we hosted more than 150 racers from across the area. We expect a big turnout again this year. We are now looking for volunteers to help us run this great event. Course marshals, parking attendants, timing staff, lots of positions to fill. If you would like to help out or if you have any questions
We have had some spectacular weather for skiing over the past week and a half. Lots of sunshine and clear skies. These a couple of pictures taken when the sun was at it's best. Thanks Yvonne Ackerman. Now, we have lots of snow on the way...quite a bit maybe, perhaps up 20 plus cm. The groomers will be out in full force over the next couple of days doing their best to pack the new snow down. Sometimes the tracks are a little soft for the first while after heavy snowfalls. We w
