Nordic Ski Ambassadors at Salmon Ridge

locationMapCome join us in enjoying ‘snow fun’ at our local SnoPark at Salmon Ridge, mile 46.9 on the Mt. Baker Highway. Members of the Nooksack Nordic Ski Club will be present from 10 – 2 on the five Saturdays from Dec 31 to Jan 28, 2017. Note: Jan 28th will be the BIGGEST! – we will be joined by REI All Out 2017, with more skis, more food, and more instructors! (see lower on this page for more info.)

Maps of the local ski and snowshoe trails will be available as well as the opportunity to buy a SnoPark pass (cash or check only). Look at and talk about different types of skis (Why would you want to ‘skate’ on skis? Why does ‘sidecut’ matter?) Put on a pair of snowshoes and try them out. Assuming that we have boots to fit, try a pair or two of skis. Maybe get a hint or two on technique. Hopefully short tours will be lead out the trails in the immediate vicinity.

Beginners – this is a chance to enjoy ‘winter’ close to Bellingham. ¬†Experienced people (club members and others) – this is a chance to help others become more familiar with what we enjoy about living in the Pacific Northwest. You don’t need to sign up, please come help.

If nothing else, stop by and say hello and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and a cookie. Hope to see you there!

January 28: As the final Saturday of the program, we hope that this will be the best! With REI participating, we will have more loaner skis to try out and more instructors to lead mini-trips away from the parking lot. And with more people, we’ll have more food and hot drinks. Hope to see you there!
