Nordic Ski Club sees theft of equipment

Nelson’s non-profit local ski club was broken into last month and had about $3,000 worth of equipment taken.

Nelson’s non-profit local ski club was broken into last month and had about $3,000 worth of equipment taken.

The Nelson RCMP said that sometime between August 15 and August 20, the Nelson Nordic Ski Club’s main shop was broken into. Four ICOM mobile radios and a Radium SAT phone were stolen.

“The Nelson Nordic Ski Club is a non-profit organization which operates with the help of volunteers to make their organization a success and allow the enjoyment of their ski trails to any who wish to use them,” said RCMP Cpl. Michael Stefani.

The ski club relies on sponsors to supplement their memberships to maintain their property and equipment.

“With this theft, the Nelson Nordic Ski Club will now have to replace these items out of money that could’ve been used to improve their facilities,” said Stefani in a release. “This crime not only affects the Nelson Nordic Ski club but everyone in the community who uses their facility.”

Anyone with information on who stole these items can contact Cst. Colleen Lowing at 250-354-5116 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
