Nordic update


I just finished packing and grooming the Nordic area . Bucky and the dog track are single track , everything else is double tracked.
 The conditions are excellent after all the snow we received. Dan Miles groomed yesterday while it was still snowing , and  I finished it off this morning.
It looks like it will be a very nice this week , so hopefully you have time this week to enjoy it.

Finally some new snow


Just finished grooming up to the prayer flags, the dog run and flattened out Moose Meadows as well as the up-track from the parking. I filled in the creek on the dog run so it is almost flat. 
 Conditions are beautiful but snow falling all of the time. 

The track is going to need a revisit after this snow stops.

I will groom it again in the morning when the snow tapers off. The conditions will be continue to be very nice

Nordic Track


We finished grading the main track ( Parking lot to Prayer flags) with Roy’s Snow Cat.
The main track is groomed and has a double track , Bucky is groomed and has a single track.
The conditions are fast with this colder weather.
The Dog track wasn’t groomed as it is too narrow for the snot cat , There is some snow forecast in the next couple of days.
If it does snow we will groom the dog track

NordicTrail closure


Hi All
We are having the main track ie from the parking lot to the prayer flags done on Thursday Feb 7.
 This machine takes up the entire track width. We are closing the Nordic area that day.
After the snow cat is gone we will be grooming the track marks out and setting new tracks.
I will send out an email when we are finished , and the tracks are open again.
Sorry for the inconvenience , but it is required to widen, flatten , and level the track surface.

Matching Funds for Nordic Donations



Help KORTS' Nordic Ski Club raise matching funds for the purchase of youth cross-country skis

Hello everyone, the KORTS Nordic Ski Club has a great opportunity to receive up to $800 in matching funds if we raise $1600 on our own. This money would go toward the purchase of cross-country skis for Kaslo and area's older youth that don't have skis and are missing out on the annual KORTS Nordic Ski Program. Two generous donors have awarded $15,000 to BC Cross-Country (BCCC) to use by member clubs for their fundraising campaigns. How it works: after the first $200 we raise, $100 is awarded to us by BCCC. After the next $400 we raise, we receive $200. After the next $1000 we raise, we get a further $500. This gives us $800 for the $1600 that we raise on our own (total $2400).
All donations are welcome and those of $50 or more receive a tax receipt.

Follow the link to make your donation and help us reach our minimum objective of $2400.

Let's get those youth moving!

Thank you all for your support!

Snow at last!


6” of wet snow this afternoon was subdued by a roller packer and Polaris snowmobile….but wait!…there’s more coming overnight. No track setting done this afternoon….just too much snow to deal with but it all went well with the roller packer. Its a bit rough due to snow accumulation on the roller but I did all the trails except to Bucky cabin. It took 4 passes each to pack the main road and main trail wide enough and smooth in the middle.

Dan is going up Saturday morning for more roller packing (initially) and maybe track setting if conditions are good for that.

Cheers

Nordic Update


I groomed the lower trails on Sunday Jan 27
The snow was warm and moist so tracking went OK though not very deep in places. But after last nights freeze the tracks will be icy and very fast until mid-day for the next few days until we get more snow. I filled in the open creek on the dog trail but it won’t last too long likely.
