Congratulations on the Bronze Medal Collin Cameron!

Local skier and Sudbury native Collin Cameron recently won a bronze medal at a International Paralympic Committee (IPC) World Cup event in Germany. From all of us here at Laurentian Nordic and the entire Sudbury Ski Community, we want to congratulate Collin on this impressive result. If anyone has ever met Collin, he is one of the most modest and kind people you will ever meet and thoroughly deserves this reward for all the extremely hard work he has been putting in. Way to go Collin!

Trails & Chalet Update – Jan. 26 @3:30pm

Howdy folks!

The chalet will be open 10am-4pm both Saturday and Sunday this weekend. Rentals will be available between those times! Just remember we may not have any rentals left Saturday afternoon during our youth programming!

Expect soft conditions on Saturday and icy/fast conditions on Sunday as it will be warm Saturday and cold again on Sunday.

Saturday programming (Jackrabbits, Bunnies, Track Attack) is a go for tomorrow. Conditions on the trails are quite good again with the recent snowfall. All trails are open, groomed and trackset. Watch for thin spots on Sofie’s Loop, especially with the warm temperatures expected on Saturday.

 

Have a great weekend and hope you are able to get out for a ski!

Gully, Shed, Wall remain the only trails open for now. Icy and fast today. Please be careful.
 
Rentals are available again.
 
Let’s hope we get a good dumping tonight and tomorrow! Fingers crossed folks!

Weekend Updates!

Good news folks – Saturday programming (Jackrabbits, Bunnies and Track Attack) is a GO…I repeat…a GO for tomorrow! It’s “Team Sport” day so wear your favorite team’s jersey, hat, etc.!

Ski rentals for the general public WILL be available tomorrow (Saturday) but please know that a lot of the equipment is in use between 12:30pm-3:00pm for our Saturday programming and we cannot guarantee that there will be the proper size equipment for anyone. The decision to allow ski rentals for Sunday of this weekend will be made Saturday night/Sunday morning, so please keep checking our website and Facebook page daily. Snowshoe rentals are available all weekend.

Conditions remain marginal and caution must continue to be used while out on the trails. The only trails that remain open are Gully, Shed and Wall.

Thank you and have a great weekend!
