Big thank you to Anna and Nathalie for coming to the club lesson last Friday. We had an awesome session, on great conditions and sunshine! We talked about Diagonal stride, double poling and one step double poling. Great work ladies, I noticed you were skikng more efficiently within the lesson, yay!
We would like to
congratulate and thank anyone who took part in the Virtual Yoho Challenge this
year. Those trails are such fun, a real adventure!
Skiers came from Golden
to Calgary to ski our Nordic trails and it was a real delight to see all the
smiles, everyone on the trails having fun.
Some even dressed
up for extra fun…LOL
Big thanks to
everyone who emailed with post race comments, pictures and compliments.
The goal was to
raise some money to pay for our grooming and machinery repairs. We also wanted
to raise awareness and put Yoho on the map as a Nordic ski destination. All and
all, I can proudly say that both goals were achieved, because of your help and
keenness to explore new trails (or return to challenge yourself again…)
The total amount
raised during the 2 weeks was approximately $2385.00 !!!
We also gained 9
new members, yahoo!
This could not
happen without our SUPER JOE groomer extraordinaire; he was out there grooming
as much as he could and did a great job given the conditions.
We would also like to send a HUGE thank you to the Truffle Pigs Lodge for their assistance, greeting everyone and for providing our skiers with tasty drinks/food.
I would also like to mention Marilyn Toulouse, for her unconditional love and support for this club. Thank you Marilyn, the club would not be what it is now without you.
This, means a lot
to our little club and we are forever grateful!
We look forward to
see you again on the trails next season and please spread the word; Yoho rocks!
Our club would like to offer a free ski lesson this year for some of our members. In order to comply with BC public health guideline during the pandemic, we can only have 3 people participate. The first 3 people to email me directly at; firstname.lastname@example.org, will be the lucky ones. We will then decide on classic or skate and location. All skill level welcome and I look forward to be your instructor for this session.
Just like many other events and fundraisers, the Kicking Horse Ski Club will be hosting a virtual event this year. In order to mitigate the pandemic, there will be no specific day for our Yoho Challenge for 2021. Participate at your convenience between February 10-24th.
