Thank you to JJ's WoodArt for the beautiful carvings, and thanks also go to Dean and Sue who put in hours and hours of work into organizing and administrating the raffle, and to Juliana White who painted the display trailer used to cart the carvings around.
And the early March challenge to use up your early bird passes was finally drawn today, and the winner of the SportChek gift card is Susan Goulin-Rodger from Terrace. Thank you SportChek for donating the prize for this draw!
It was a memorable day. The final day of the JackRabbits season, so there were games and activities all over the place. Then, Beckie Scott, Canadian Olympic Nordic skier, showed up. She hung out with the various groups, and then talked to the group of adults and kids, answered questions, presented the coaches with "Snow Valley Nordics Coach" toques, posed for photos with various families, signed skis, and ate supper. The ski conditions were great, the potluck supper supported a huge variety of delicious entres and desserts. You'll have to press the "read more" to see more photos.
Saturday, March 10, is the last day of JackRabbits. It's also the day that Beckie Scott (her bio is below) is coming to Onion Lake! Everyone is welcome to join in the fun! Games and activities for all ages start at 3:00 p.m. Bonfire and potluck start around 5:30. Presentations of prizes and a special presentation for the coaches will follow supper.

At the risk of repeating myself, what a season we are having! We’ve got better than a meter and a half base, and 99 new members! It just keeps getting better! OK, that’s 3 exclamation marks in a row, calm down. Thorne!
First the thankyou’s – to Dean Bergstrom and Deo Araujo for putting in 200 hours of grooming in the past month – Thank you so much! And to Anthony VanderMeulen for his countless hours and grooming expertise this whole season. There is no ski season without expert grooming.
Here is a short video that one of our groomers, Deo Araujo, filmed using a drone of the SNVNSC Moose Marathon for 2018
