The Nechako Nordics are holding the event on Jan. 18 at NVSA grounds

With winter roaring its way through, why not try Cross-Country Skiing for the first time?

The Nechako Nordics are inviting everyone on Jan. 18 from noon until 4 p.m. to the Nechako Valley Sporting Association Trails, for a free Ski day.

This event is open to the public and everyone is invited.

There will be no day pass or rental fees. Participants will just have to go to the NVSA clubhouse to register and procure any equipment they require.

The Ski equipment will be signed out on a first-come-first-serve basis, as per a news release from Richard D. Burkholder, chairman of the Nechako Nordics Cross-Country Ski Club in Vanderhoof.

Pro-Tip: Go early, as there is a limited selection of sizes.
