Warming up for spring sports in Nelson

Finding ourselves in between seasons end and spring start up times, the community has just a few activities to report.

As the snow melts and skiers enjoy their last glides on the trails, Nelson Nordic Ski Club would like to thank all members, day-pass users, and volunteers for an excellent nordic season. The last day of grooming will be March 31 on which date the night lights will be turned off.

To prevent further erosion of the Busk/Euphrates trail have now been closed. Please note that trail is private property and no dogs are allowed at any time.

Before heading out to Apex or Busk for one last glide please call 250-354-4292 for the latest in snow conditions on the trail system. Otherwise, wipe off the skis and pack them safely away for next year’s season’s trek up to ring the bell at the top of the Clearwater trail.

 

Rhythmic Dimensions is starting its spring program schedule next month. Learn to dance with ribbons, hoops, balls, scarves and more in their fun and creative programs. For girls ages six and up, programs run between April 9 to June 7 at South Nelson school. For more information or registration please contact Giselle at Rhythmic Dimensions 250-505-1812.
