Georgian Bay Nordic continues to train hard on the current green snow.
This year the Devo team (grades 5 – 8) have invited the Track Attack Jackrabbits group to join them for 6 dryland/on snow sessions starting late November.
This addition to the Bruce Ski Club Jackrabbit program allows these more skilled skiers a chance to experience dryland training, gain skills in ski preparation and maintenance as well as making gains in their strength and their technique in both skate and classic skiing. In addition we have more keen young skiers for our program that includes plenty of fun and games.
GBN has many exciting items up for auction on its website. Check it out! and keep up to date on what else we are up to.
This winter Sawmill Trails will be the place to be on February 10th and 11th. A Nordic Festival starting with the Moonlight Ski Friday night (in its original form, bring your own snacks and friends) and enjoy the fellowship of the ski community.
Saturday morning is Jackrabbits as usual then there will be a light lunch served — by donation — as a bridge to the Awesome Adult Afternoon ski lesson. Child care is provided and this is an excellent opportunity to tune up your technique or try a brand new kind of skiing (skate for you classic skiers, or the other way around).
