Hi everyone.  As the snow creeps down the slopes of the surrounding mountains, and we wake up to flecks of white stuff in the air....
 
First, an update about hoodies and touques.  The head coach of the cross country ski club in Smithers, Lisa Perry, has organized the availability of hoodies and hats, with a "ski north" logo.  This logo was designed by Ben Carter from Terrace, with some friends, at the dryland camp in Smithers this fall.  (See poster here.)  Snow Valley Club members can now purchase hoodies with "Snow Valley Nordic Ski Club" embroidered on the front.  The hoodies come in a wide range of colors for both adults and youth.  Online shop is here.
The Snow Valley hoodies are at the bottom of the page.  Deadline for ordering is Nov. 15, and the order should be brought back with the crew returning from Snow Camp on Dec. 2.

Hey ski friends!  The ski season starts NOW!!  Memberships are now available (online here or printable form here).  Please don't disregard the volunteer requests--there is lots of work that goes into running and maintaining all that we have out at Onion Lake!

And the first volunteer opportunity is a WORK PARTY on Oct. 6.  Meet at the lodge at 10:00 a.m.  We have wood to cut and split for the winter, and some carpentry tasks, and trail work.  More details will follow, but mark your calendars now!

And later in October, on Tuesday, October 23, we'll hold our Annual General Meeting.  This is an excellent opportunity to hear from the executive and other directors and coordinators what the club has been doing this past year, and to be part of our plans for the upcoming season.  We will hold elections and would welcome new board members as directors-at-large.  And we will eat dessert.  That's the best tradition at an AGM!

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 resized DSC 0044Coach" 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.
