Representatives from several Nordic ski clubs have started some continuing conversations about issues facing ski clubs in this age of problematic snow (and covid). This page is a place for us to put up a few links to follow during our conversations. Are you part of another club that would like to join our discussions? Send an email to Pete at email@example.com
Clubs in the discussions:
- CASTA – Capital Area Ski Touring Association (Albany, New York)
- NNSC – Nooksack Nordic Ski Club (Bellingham, Washington)
- Nordic Ski Club of Milwaukee (Milwaukee, Wisconsin)
- North Star Ski Touring Club (Minneapolis, Minnesota)
Suggestions for January meeting:
- Each club discuss 2-4 destination ski areas popular with their club members. Plan on sharing pictures and maps on Zoom meeting. Pete can help prepare materials if wanted.
- Each club discuss one thing they are doing (or would like to do) to help popularize Nordic skiing. Example: Nordic Ambassadors
- Each club show a map and a couple of pictures of their ‘local’ ski trail.
General Membership Meeting Topics
- Might some of these be opened to all members of ‘consortium clubs’?
- Avalanche Awareness
- What to think about when shopping for cross-country skis
- Avenza Mapping App on Nordic Ski Trails
- Cross-country skiing during the Winter of Covid. A participatory slideshow! This was fun for our club’s last meeting last year – it could be even more fun with national participation!
