February a busy month at Nelson’s Apex trails

British Columbians will be enjoying our first ever Family Day holiday on Monday.

British Columbians will be enjoying our first ever Family Day holiday on Monday. Take advantage of it by getting out of the house and enjoying some physical activity… and to make room for all those Valentine chocolates following the next week!

 

The Nelson Nordic Ski Club will be helping to celebrate Family Day by offering a complimentary cross country ski day, all day on February 11.

The club will also be running a ski improvement clinic on February 9 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at Apex. It is a great opportunity to improve your skills. Three classes for both classic and skate skiing from beginner to Intermediate levels are offered. Cost is $10 with an additional $10 trail fee for non members. Classes are filling up fast so register ahead with Nancy at nquackenbush@sd8.bc.ca

Following shortly thereafter is the 11th annual Valentine’s Night Ski at Apex on February 14 from 6 to 9 p.m. Meet at the Apex trail head with a non-perishable food item for the Nelson Food Cupboard. Dylann McPherson, a Selkirk music student will be entertaining the crowds. It will be a fun evening of fireworks, wish lanterns, bonfire, hot apple cider and lots of sweets (donations of baked goods greatly appreciated, please contact ajpop@netidea.com if you are able to contribute). And remember to wear red!

 

Looking forward to the more greener springtime activities, Nelson Youth Soccer registration for house league is now open with a deadline of March 1. Go to nys.ca for online registration or pick up registration forms at NDCC.
