Add Skate Skiing to Your List of New Year's Resolutions

This season, KNC is glad to offer skate skiing rentals as a new option at the club.

Rentals fees are set at $35 for three hours (including your trail pass) making this branch of cross country skiing accessible to anyone who wants to try. Skate Skiing Background Skate skiing has been around for about 30 years, and it offers a different workout than classic skiing.

Skiers have been out on the trails at the Kimberley Nordic Club (KNC) for weeks, but the club officially opens this Saturday December 21st. If you need to pick up your membership, Fit Certificate or day pass, the kiosk will be open from 9am - 6pm daily starting Saturday.

Racing into the New Year

Skiing and Smiles to Start the Season
