We all hope for a long ski season but... For this year I think that the snow cover to ski safely @ Nak south is rapidly diminishing and will be come unskiable by the end of this week.

With that situation in mind the SKI XC FAST March Break SKI Camp has been cancelled.

MARCH 15, 16, 17 from 10am – 3:30pm at the NAKKERTOK NORDIC CENTRE

What is this?

Back by popular demand X-C SKI FAST and Nakkertok are hosting the 3rd Annual Spring Break Nordic Camp March 15, 16 & 17.

This camp will promise fun on skis and new for 2010 fun on snowshoes! All three days will be filled with games, relays, trail skis and loads of fun with new and old ski buddies. We will be providing instruction in both classic and skate techniques. Focusing on weight transfer, long glide, power, poling, hills and best of all “SKIING FAST”. We will be exploring the new Nakkertok South snowshoeing trails in the afternoon.
