Dan was out for a ski, and this is his report:
Saturday December 20th 3pm
Skied Beaver, OK for Classic. New snow overnight.
Cliff packed the Beaver with the Yamaha this afternoon, made 4 passes, some twigs, a few rocks, some puddles and a couple of thin spots.
Temperature plus +1C rain showers. Parking lot is cleared.
Worth the trip if you are just happy to get out on the trails.
Thanks to Cliff for packing the trails, and to Dan for the ski update!
Important message from Dean, who was grooming some trails late this afternoon:
Packed the Beaver, Snow Bound, 0.5, Sprint, Troll and Doggie. Pretty good actually, there is rocks and sticks showing through of course but very skiable....
We're getting there, but it's not quite enough snow yet! The groomers are ready to start packing the trails, as soon as they are able. If anyone can do anything about getting us a few more feet of snow, go for it!
Hi everyone! A few things have come up so we thought we’d send out a quick note to everyone. The weatherman says it’s going to snow next week so that anxiety is taken care of. (That’s a joke.J) The PB blew its alternator but it’s fixed now and all the machines are running. We’ve got a contractor lined up to plow the parking lot as well so those are the two start-of-season biggies taken care of.
We will be doing rentals for Rabbits families only on Saturday, Dec. 13 starting at 1 pm....
If you are in the market for new cross-country ski gear, waxes, brushes, corks, irons, ski boxes, clothing, etc.....
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.
Three emails sent out recently:
1. Ski swap Nov. 7/8
2. Introduction to Community Coaching course coming to Onion Lake

Hello SVNSC Membership and Cross Country Ski Enthusiasts,

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!
