Welcome to the Strathcona Nordic Ski Club (SNSC) website. SNSC is Vancouver Island’s cross-country ski club. We are based in the beautiful nordic ski area of Mount Washington Alpine Resort near Courtenay, BC. Mount Washington has over 50 km of groomed trails that cover a variety of terrain — everything to satisfy the beginner, the advanced nordic skier, and everyone in between.
We are a not-for-profit society dedicated to skier development and the promotion of nordic skiing for fun, fitness, recreation, and health. We are also working to improve the infrastructure and facilities for nordic skiers on Vancouver Island. In winter 2010, we realized one of our long-term goals when we sent SNSC officials and skiers to the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver! Learn more about us on the About page. Catch up on our latest news on the Home page.
In early October, registration opens for SNSC winter 2013 programs and membership on the Zone4 website. The Earlybird registration deadline is November 30, 2012. Remember, when you register for our programs or membership, you will still need a Mount Washington Nordic Season’s Pass (which are usually for sale starting in mid-late summer) or trail pass to use the trails! Rabbit families are eligible for a special trail pass, which is valid only on Rabbit program days and will be for sale when the Raven Lodge opens in December. To learn about club membership, visit the Membership page.
Our recreational 2013 programs begin in early January and run for 10 weekends. You can find out more about SNSC programs on our Programs pages. Check out our photos and videos in the Gallery pages.
