The Nechako Nordics held a Ski Tournament as part of their spring windup celebrations on March 17.

Participant skiers were put into four teams. Activities included a three-legged race, a terrain relay race were skiers traversed a loop with some steep downhill and tight turns through hoops and pylons, a Mad Dash Sprint race and an Easter Egg hunt with a cross country skiing theme. In total 50 skiers participated in the fun.

Again this year, the weather and skiing conditions were fabulous. Cool conditions the night before made the course nice and fast while temperatures rose during the day which allowed many competitors to ski in their T-shirts. Music from the clubhouse added to the festive mood. Hot chocolate and lunch was provided to all competitors.

The Yellow Team made up of Mila Manwaring, Marek Baker, Liam Tone, Constance Bryan, Kathleen Steiner, Ronan Blattner, Evan Eadie, Nico Marshall, Zachary Whitecotton, Andrew Gatacre, Nigel Watney and Dayne Mueller were the top team in this years Ski Tournament competition. Mark Watney won the “Best Skating Technique” for the younger (8 years and under) skiers and his brother, Ian Watney, won the same award for the older (9-13 years) skiers.

Thanks to our groomers, Traugott and Markus Klien and the 26 other volunteers that helped put on this successful event.

 

Special thanks goes out to Cross Country Canada for providing beautiful red toques as incentive awards for all competitors.
