Hello everyone!  Hope you enjoyed your May Long Weekend!  We have one last work party to put the trails to bed, coming up on Saturday, May 27 starting at 10 am.  We need 2 or 3 people with high-clearance vehicles to cruise the trails doing a sign inventory.  Cupboards and tables in the lodge need to be cleaned, we need to get the concrete blocks into place on the Troll trail. and we need to paint the deck.  This shouldn't take very long if we have enough people, and we always have fun!  So please, come on out and pitch in for as long as you can.  Bring the kids, some wieners and marshmallows and it'll be a great day! (Soup and bread will be provided.)
See you there!      --Liz Thorne (Past Prez. - SVNSC)

Hello Skiers,

We are asking for all seasonal ski rentals to be returned to the ski club this Saturday April 1st from noon to 2pm at the ski trails. And we are looking for volunteers to help with waxing the rental skis and preparing the clubs rental equipment for off season storage.

The Club is also hosting a volunteer appreciation supper at 4:30 pm. Cathy is making a huge batch of chili. It’s time to thank all the volunteers that make our ski trails happen, groomers, rental shed volunteers, coaches, Snow Flake Café helpers, families that bring soup and baked goods, facilities and equipment maintenance, members assisting with club events like our ski races and open house and the near endless list of jobs that need doing all year long. Every little chore you can image that needs doing  is done by our member volunteers. Hey did the Groomers do a spectacular job this year or what? Show your appreciation!

The rental shed is open now only by pre-arranged appointment.  Please call someone from the executive to set up a time.  (See the "contact us" page on this website.)  We will try our best to accomodate those who want to rent to enjoy some spring skiing!

Last week we challenged all early bird members to give their two free passes away--all free passes that came through the envelopes in the day fee locked box (Thursday to Sunday) would be entered into a draw for a $25 TimCard.  And the winner is....Michelle Riley, from Terrace!  Congratulations, Michelle!  And thank you to all who brought someone out skiing over the weekend! 

The rental shed will be open April 1st, noon to 2 p.m., to take in all  rental gear.  Mark this date on your calendar if you've rented gear from the club this season--it needs to come home for inventory and maintenance.  And if anyone would like to help with waxing skis, come on down!

I am pleased to say that the Moose Marathon Race at the Onion Lake Cross Country Ski Trails will be held this Saturday March 4th!  (Registration and other details below.)

And the very popular Women’s Fest will be happening this Sunday March 5th!  (Again, details below, keep reading!)

Thanks to the hard work of our Groomers;  they have been able to keep some trails open, the Dog Run, most of the Moose Highway, Snowbound, Rainbow and parts of the Stadium, Beaver and Rabbit trails. Now with the new snow and more snow expected they will be able to get more of the trails fully open again soon.

Hi folks, skiing has greatly improved with dry weather and that lovely renovater driven by some great groomers.  So Rabbits is a go this Saturday.  Skate skiing last evening was fantastic. I think classic skiing will be good as well.  However, we don't have a tonne of trail opened up yet so we are going to take the chance and push the Moose Marathon to next weekend and see how it goes. Weather and time looks like it will be on our side but don't be afraid to say a few prayers that conditions continue. We may even get some wintery snow!

(Message from Travis)

Hi, everyone:  Very sad conditions at the trails.  All most tragic.  The stadium is completely ice, literally you could use metal bladed skates in the stadium.  There is snow on the trails but it is cement.  You could not put a mark in it with a ski if you tried.  So...there will be no formal lessons for rabbits tomorrow.  No safe skiing could occur.

Hi Everyone!  Just a quick update so everyone is in the loop! The skiing is great! And it’s all thanks to groomers Jim, Erich and Anthony! Jim and Erich took the Ginzu around the stadium trails, Jack Rabbit and the Snowbound circuit many, many times and they’re all now in excellent shape. The Moose is likewise in good shape as far as the Kitlope crossing.

The recent rain has forced us into the difficult position of postponing the women's ski fest, scheduled for tomorrow.  We will find an alternate weekend to hold the ski fest, once conditions improve.  Meanwhile, am attaching some photos from this morning's Rabbits program.  These kids are tough little skiers!    Cathy V.                Click the "read more" to see the photos!
