The Nelson Nordic Ski Club is actively fundraising for a new grooming machine that will be more fuel efficient, lower in emissions and more reliable over the long-term.
The cost of a new machine is $327,000 after trade-in. We now have more than one-third of that amount secured through the club's capital reserve and donations. Our goal is $125,000 in donations, which will help us to leverage matching funds from the BC Capital Gaming Grant.
The more money we raise through donations, the less we will have to spend from our Club reserves for this necessary equipment upgrade.
Any money we save can be spent on programs for members and non-members alike – we offer courses for over 900 schoolchildren annually through our popular School Outreach Program, plus other youth and adult programs.
Nelson Nordic Ski Club is a non-profit community resource offering 26km of beautiful groomed track – a boon for tourism and our local community!
