Alberta Nordic Cup

Welcome to the Pembina Nordic Ski Club


Groomers Report, Friday / Saturday January 31st, 2015

‎After two weeks of extremely hard, icy conditions, a decent snowfall has renewed the trail system! All the trails were packed late last night and re-packed today. The Ridge Trail, North Loop and Evergreen Trail have been groomed for skating and track-set for classic skiing. The West Hill has been packed only and requires further set up time before it can be groomed and track-set. Skating will be soft until the lanes have time to set up overnight. Classic skiing should be excellent, head out and enjoy the great skiing!

A great turnout! Thank you everybody for contributing to a successful (snowy!) race. Special thanks to our sponsors and volunteers. The race results can be found in this 75 KB pdf file 2015 Loppet results.

Club Jackets

We are excited to announce that we are ordering club jackets this year! The final graphic design has not been worked out yet, but it will feature our logo on a background of turquoise and lime green with black sleeves and trim. I have attached a three page catalog with a VERY draft design and sizing information. Louis Garneau will take the draft design and make something much better! The design will be the same on the back as on the front.

FITTING SESSIONS WERE ON SUNDAY, DECEMBER 14, AT THE CHALET, but the order is not in yet as we wrestle with design issues.

Our minimum order is 6 PER style, so for example 6 Junior Micro and/or six Adult Micro. If we don't get very many Jr orders we will have to size them up to an adult size. The adult XXS is about the same size as a Jr L and the XXS is about the same size as the Jr XL. The adult sizes just have longer arms and bodies.

We get better pricing if we order at least 12 jackets. So far we have 6 interested people so we are on our way!

PRICES ARE AS FOLLOWS:
Adult $114, Junior $94
