Free chance to try cross-country skiing

There will be free skiing all day at Bulkley Valley Nordic Centre Sunday, including free rentals.

With the snowfall of last week, skiers of all types will be happy and itching to get out on the slopes and trails.

Those thinking of trying cross-country skiing will have a perfect opportunity this Sunday. There will be free skiing all day at Bulkley Valley Nordic Centre, including free rentals by McBike from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Free snacks will be available for noon to 3 p.m.

More details can be found at bvnordic.ca/about-our-club/news/welcome-day-at-the-bv-nordic-centre.

While ski conditions on the hills are relatively easy to discover, those on the trails are a bit more challenging. Enter Ben Forsyth, recently appointed as communications director for the Bulkley Valley Cross Country Ski Club.

Forsyth said the Nordic Centre offers a lot of basic information that can be found easily and as up-to-date as possible by accessing the website.

Basic trail conditions can be found at bvnordic.ca/trails-and-facilities/trail-conditions.

A map of the trails including all of the various trail names can be found at bvnordic.ca/images/content/2017_BVNordic_Map.pdf.
