Kimberley Nordic Gourmet Ski, SOLD OUT again, this Saturday, Feb. 24th, 2018.

This event is one of the key "must do's" on the KNC schedule every year and has SOLD OUT the last number of years, as it has also done this year too. Cross country skiing and eating gourmet food outdoors, it doesn't get any better than this. And all in the friendly, relaxed atmosphere of Kimberley Nordic. Even though the event is sold out it is an event that is even fun to watch. So come out and ski the trails during this event and then put it on your list for next winter...plan ahead. This is one of the most social ... and tastiest ... events Kimberley Nordic hosts every year. Kimberley Nordic, one of the friendliest clubs I know...

Nice Weekend Coming...

This should be a great weekend to get out skiing and you can expect views like this to welcome you to Kimberley Nordic. But keep an eye on the weather for the snow coming on Saturday. Always good to see more snow in the air and on the ground but with maybe 20 cm. forecast to arrive on Saturday please watch your driving and of course check the KNC Live Grooming Report to check on grooming over the weekend. Spring may be around the corner but it is not here yet. Remember the Barvarian Relays for all the kids on Sunday. Most activities for the kids will take place in and around the lodge so there will be lots of open space and fresh air out on the trails like there also is at Kimberley Nordic.

Winter Olympics Cross Country Ski Race Watching.

The Winter Olympics are on right now and there has been lots of great coverage for cross country skiing and other events too. But sometimes finding the coverage you want is not easy. Here is a CBC TV schedule for the cross country events. And here is a link to Skiing Vinnie, a cross country skiing enthusiast who finds coverage from around the world and posts the races, usually within a few hours of the races being complete. Just finished watching the Womens 10 km Classic. https://ixcski.weebly.com/ Happy watching and please lots of cheering too. GO CANADA !

WOW...what a CRAZY weather day yesterday...ALL GOOD NOW !

Yesterday was one of the craziest weather days I have ever seen in Kimberley. At one point in the day the weather station read +10c and everything was melting everywhere. The Masters group was planning a last minute video and indoor exercise session just to fill in. I came up for a ski at about 3:00pm. Then everything changed. Started a 6 km. loop skating, a little snow in the middle, not bad skating...then more snow, slower...then more snow, slower again. By the time I finished there was no longer a track to be seen and it was very slow. Then it got worse. Heavier snow still. Tried a little classic skiing in snow now 5-7 inches deep. Tested grip wax for 500 metres, came back and my next pai
