100 Mile Nordics Finishes Third in Membership Contest – 100 Mile House Free Press

The 100 Mile Nordics came close to winning a membership contest for the second year in a row, despite a late increase in registrations last week.

The local club finished in third place with 269 members in the Cross Country BC contest, which pits clubs from across the province against each other with the goal of registering the most members by December 1.

There are six different categories depending on the size of the club; the 100 Mile Nordics club competed in Group D, which saw Williams Lake take first place, followed by the Whiskey Jack Nordic Club of Fort St. John.

Thousands of dollars in prizes – including children’s ski equipment, free nights at various ski resorts and a variety of ski items – were up for grabs for the winning club.

Last year, 100 Mile Nordics saw a surge in membership at the end of November that pushed them to the top of the list, with a record 319 members registered by December 1.

Although the contest is closed, memberships and passes can still be purchased online at 100milenordics.com.

Club volunteers are hoping for more snow in the coming days, which will make it possible to ride and clean the trails. The opening date for the slopes and the lodge is still in limbo until the 99 Mile ski slopes receive some more snow, club members said on Sunday.
