Whitehorse Nordic Centre
The Whitehorse Nordic Centre is operated by the Whitehorse Cross Country Ski Club and offers 85 kilometers of groomed trails for classic and skate skiing and snowshoeing. An additional 20 kilometers of ungroomed single track are available for snowshoeing and ski touring. The trail system, combined with a great indoor facility, varied programs and affordable fees makes the Whitehorse Nordic Centre a popular choice for winter recreation. The trails are open year round and are equally popular in summer for mountain biking, hiking, running and walking.
Member Engagement Report
Earlier this year, the Club launched “Let’s Imagine … WCCSC” to hear from its 1300 members and other users of the winter trail system regarding their vision for the Club’s future. The exercise consisted of an online survey and two World Café forums.
The purpose was to gather input to assist the Club’s board in setting the direction for the future of the Club.
In addition to the views of members and users, other factors the Board needs to consider include financial sustainability, membership growth, programs, new and different uses of the trail system and the quality of the trails.
The report from the member engagement process is now available: click here.
Rental Opportunities for Haywood Ski Nationals
The Haywood Ski Nationals will be held in Whitehorse in 2016 and teams will need accommodation from March15/16 to March 30. Due to an overlap with the Yukon Native Hockey Tournament, there is a looming accommodation shortage for the more than 500 skiers, coaches and officials expected to come to Whitehorse.
The event organizing committee is urging Ski Club Members and the Whitehorse community at large to consider renting their homes or billeting visitors. If you are interested in this opportunity you should decide soon. Teams are already planning for next year and booking accomodation.
To facilitate communication between home owners and renters, an online bulletin board has been established at http://accomnats2016.boardhost.com/ The site is self explanatory. The Whitehorse Cross Country Ski Club and the Organizing Commitee bear no responsibility for rental arrangements or issues between renters and owners.
