Nelson Nordic Ski Club plans second annual community loppet

The event is organized and run by L.V. Rogers students

Submitted by Nelson Nordic Ski Club

The Nelson Nordic Ski Club will hold their second annual community loppet on Feb. 22.

All proceeds generated from this event will go directly to the Nelson CARES Society to support their efforts in creating more affordable housing units.

This is an exciting event that will bring together people from all across the area who have a passion for cross country skiing or would simply like to get out for a day on the snow. It is an amazing opportunity to get involved with and we are looking for as many participants as possible as this will be contributing to the solution of an extremely important issue within our region.

The event is organized and run entirely by students at L.V. Rogers and it wouldn’t be possible without the generous contributions of several local businesses. It will be held at the Nelson Nordic Ski Club, and the cost to register will be $15 for adults, $10 for youth, and $35 for a family.

There will be a light lunch and warm drinks provided followed by a draw with amazing prizes from local businesses all across our community.

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the race itself will start at 10:15 a.m., draw prizes will then be drawn at 11:45 a.m. There are three options in terms of distances and you will get to choose from either a 3, 5, or 10 km course, and there will also be skis available to rent on-site. This is a fun, non-competitive event.
