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/Sundays – but dates and snow are problematic!

  • We’ve scheduled two so far:
  • Saturday, January 27, 2024. 10:00 – 2:00 at the Salmon Ridge SnoPark. See you there!
  • Saturday, February 10, 2024. 10:00 – 2:00 – Canceled – no snow. Check back here for more dates if it snows at the snopark.
  • Saturday, March 2, 2024. 10:00-2:00. Fresh snow! Grooming on Feb. 29. More fresh snow on top of the grooming! Come on out and enjoy the day. Stop by and get a cup of hot chocolate (and a map, if you need one). Don’t forget your snopark pass. (not to late to buy one: Sno-Park Permits ( )
  • Hopefully we will have a couple of Sunday dates (Maybe Jan. 6th and Feb. 3rd? But these are not confirmed yet. Check back here later.)

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. Take a look at a pair of the short/wide ‘better-than-snowshoes’ (in some individuals’ opinions) Hok skis. Assuming that we have boots to fit, try a pair or two of skis (including the Hoks). Maybe get a hint or two on technique. Hopefully short tours will be led 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. With enough people, we can take turns staying at the table and going for a ski!

If nothing else, stop by and say ‘hi’ and get a cup of hot chocolate. Hope to see you there!
