Nordic Centre opens Saturday Nov 21
Tuesday November 17, 2020
Bulkley Valley Nordic Centre will open November 21, 2020. A season pass or day ticket will be required starting this Saturday. Register online for your season pass.
Good snow and lots of early packing means that the PistenBully can start grooming trails for the weekend. (Click the webcam image on our home page to see our new "Snow Stump".)
We expect to have about 25 km of early season trails ready for crazy nice skiing. We should have all of the dog trails (10 km) in good shape. Unfortunately, the rest of the Pine Creek trails are blocked by deep wet sections which will need a deep freeze or more snow. On the Chris Dahlie side, we will have about 15 km of early season trails available for the weekend. Valley View and the road out to HB Mtn Road are not being groomed for the next 6 weeks because of planned use by logging trucks accessing salvage patches at the end of Valley View. But we can carefully cross the logging road at the end of Broadway to ski out and back on Wetzin’kwa and Upper Logging Trail; a nice 14 km round trip from the lodge.
The Club has a COVID-19 Safety Plan that relies on everyone doing their part. Please make sure you go to https://bvnordic.ca/covid-19-info and read the plan before skiing. Some of the key bits:
- Please stay away from the Nordic Centre trails and buildings if you don’t feel well. If you have COVID-19 or are displaying symptoms, self-isolate for the period recommended by health officials.
- Maintain 2 metre distancing in the parking lot, on trails and in buildings.
- Trail passing etiquette: Our trails our wide, so use the space to keep 2 metres apart during passing. Skaters passing or being passed should move to a classic track and double pole. If you are approaching from behind, call out “Passing” to warn others you want to pass.
- Wear a mask and use hand sanitizer to enter any Nordic Centre building.
