Hello Everyone! It’s great to see the snow creeping down the mountains and weather office predicting snow this week at ski level! You’ll be glad to know that the grooming crew has been tuning up the machines and we’ve had some very successful work parties which (besides much else) got a new deck put on the Rabbits storage hut and some boards replaced on the lodge deck as well as restacking that enormous wood pile. We still have split wood for sale if you or anyone you know wants to stock up.

Hello SVNSC Membership and Cross Country Ski Enthusiasts,
Our Annual General Meeting will be held at the Onion Lake Ski Trails this Friday at 730pm (agenda below). This is your best opportunity to get involved, find out what your Executive are up to and influence the direction of our Ski Club. Plus we will have some tasty deserts on hand.
Also SVNSC will be a participant in the Ski Swap on November 8th this year. Liz Thorne will be coordinating this for us.
Hello everyone and a very happy fall season to you all! You’ll be happy to know that the ski trails are still there and the buildings still standing and we absolutely guarantee that you’ll be skiing as soon as the snow gets here.
This is the new website, check it out! It's still a work in progress, we have a few links to fix and some of the features need to be built in, like, groomers' report, and skier-reported conditions. The membership forms have been updated (go to "Memberships and Fees") and can be printed off the link. Within a few days we'll have the online registration system up, as well. Early Bird rates are now in effect, until October 31st.
Our AGM is happening on October 24th; it's a great time to meet-and-greet old and new members and ski enthusiasts, and to eat the best desserts this side of the Rockies!! Come and get an update on our fundraising for replacing the PistenBully (big expensive grooming machine), and other things that are happening at Onion Lake this year!
This Sunday (March 30th) we are holding a "We Like to Ski in the Spring" event! The conditions at the Onion Lake Ski Trails are still very good (thanks to the time-consuming packing and trail-setting done by the intrepid groomers, Dean and Jim) and we are not putting our skis away yet, are we? NO!
Hi Everyone! Well hasn’t it been a season? First we can’t ski, then we can, then we can’t and now we can again. Weird! Just so you know – The Dog, Beaver and Moose are groomed. The rain has not been kind but Jim and Dean are doing their best.
Here's a happy Grade 4/5 group of kids from Cassie Hall, skiing on Tuesday. Thanks to their teacher, Mr. Vick, and thanks to Travis and Dan and Bev who organized the gear and instructed the group!
This is a memo from Peter Krause (Bulkley Valley Cross Country Ski Club in Smithers) about their club's loppet this coming weekend, on Saturday, March 15th. Several Snow Valley members from Terrace and Kitimat are planning to attend, and it would be great to see a good showing from our club! This loppet is designed for all: from hard-core racer to recreational skier to children.
