Nordic Ski Ambassadors at Salmon Ridge


Come 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 some Saturdays – but dates and snow are problematic! We had a good time on Saturday, February 16, 2019 – not sure when the next time we’ll get up there will be. But we will post right here when it gets scheduled.

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 (only a few pair will be available). 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!
