Laurentian Nordic Ski Fest

Looking for something to do this March Break?!

Come on out to the Laurentian Nordic Ski Club, located on the Laurentian University Campus, for some great cross country skiing!

We will be offering the following deals:
Youth 18 and under – FREE DAY PASS & RENTALS
Adults (19-54) – HALF-PRICE DAY PASS & RENTALS ($10!!!)
*Please sign-in at the chalet before heading out for a ski.
**While rentals last. No reservations or guarantees on equipment availability can be made.

Kilometer Challenge:
Also part of our Ski Fest is a kilometer challenge. We are encouraging all skiers to “Ski their Faces Off” and get as many kilometers on the snow before it disappears. Using our tracking chart at the chalet, participants will be able to record their kilometers and be considered for prizes.
A few rules:
~ Participants are able to ski at any 6 of Sudbury’s ski clubs and count these kilometers towards our Ski Fest and prizes.
~ Participants must ski a minimum of 5 kilometers on Laurentian Nordic trails in order to be considered for prizes.
~ Prizes will be awarded for skiing 5km, 10km, 20km, and 40km+ over the course of 5 days (Monday-Friday)
~ Participants must take photo evidence of themselves skiing at another ski club, tagging that particular club along with Laurentian Nordic Ski Club / Club de ski nordique Laurentien, in order for those kilometers to count towards their overall kilometers for our Ski Fest.

Other Ski Clubs/Centers Include:
Walden Cross Country Fitness Club
Kivi Park
Onaping Falls
BioSki Cross-Country Ski & Snowshoe Club
Capreol Cross Country Ski Club

*Please Note: Trails and chalet openings depend on snow and weather conditions. Please be prepared for trails and chalet to be closed at any time or on short notice due to inclement weather.

March News!

Chalet Hours
Given the recent inconsistent weather and the likelihood for this to continue into the spring, we would like to inform our members and the public that the chalet may have irregular hours or be closed entirely at any point during the week and at short notice. Trail conditions and chalet hours can be checked on our Facebook or Twitter pages.

If the chalet is closed and you are a member, you are still able to access the chalet with the code for the door. Please contact our Ski School Coordinator Konrad Wiltmann to be given the code and access.
Thank You for your understanding

Congratulation to Racers
The past few months have seen many members participating in a variety of races.

We hosted a successful Sofie Manarin Nickel Loppet earlier and had a great turnout from the community once again.

As well, High School racers from Sudbury who trained at Laurentian recently returned from OFSSA with great success. We congratulate the dedicated athletes and their teachers and coaches. We look forward to hosting these racers as OFSSA is held next year on our trails!

The Laurentian University varsity teams returned home from OUA’s as well with a strong showing amongst the Ontario Universities by both the men’s and women’s team. Congratulations to these student athletes and the varsity coaches and support crews.

Finally the midget racers and Para Nordic racers enjoyed great success as well. A particular shout out to Collin Cameron who returned from Finsterau, Germany to attend his first World Championship in February. He is heading off to South Korea shortly for his first World Cup in Asia. Good luck Collin!

Again congratulations to all these athletes, the coaches, waxing crews and parents. We are proud to have you as club members!

We hope you get out to enjoy some spring skiing.

Our AGM is coming later this spring too so stay tuned for more information.

See you on the trails!
