Bruce Wurtele

04 Nov 2017 … 13 Nov 2017

Fall means trail work at Kawartha Nordic! Trail clearing and volunteer weekends will be planned throughout the fall with dates posted to the website. Can't make one of these dates? No problem, feel free to visit on your own schedule and send us an email to let us know what you've done so we can direct other volunteers.

What's involved? Simply hiking the trails, removing branches, sticks and large stones from the trail bed, and cutting back any branches that interfere with safe skiing from the side of the trail. If you come across any large fallen trees send us an email to let us know the location. Other jobs such as stacking firewood are needed at the Woodfine chalet. The woodshed at the Laderach cabin also needs some TLC.

A volunteer coordinator will be at the Woodfine Chalet at the beginning of the day and will leave instructions for those arriving later in the day

  • November 4 - noon - 4pm
  • November 5 between 10am and 3pm.
  • November 12 - 9am - noon
  • November 13 - 10am-3pm
  • additional dates will be added shortly

No need to RSVP. Please bring work gloves, work boots/ footwear, snacks and drinks, loppers, handsaws, trimmers or any other equipment you might make good use of.

Join the Ski Patrol

02 Sep 2017

Bruce Wurtele

Please read this important note from Beverley Cameron. The ski patrol provides a vital service to the Kawartha Nordic community and we strongly encourage you to consider joining the team.

Canadian Ski Patrol Registration and Training begins in September

The Kawartha Nordic Ski Club Ski Patrol is in need of additional members to come to the club and ski our trails. The Kawartha Nordic Ski Patrol are members of the Canadian Ski Patrol, who have 4,000 + members across Canada. At one time we had more than 35 patrollers and while our club has grown significantly, the number of volunteer members of the Canadian Ski Patrol has shrunk.

The training you receive in First Aid and CPR and AED to Health Care Provider Level could help someone at our ski club but more likely will be used to help a member of your own family, a friend, classmate or a colleague.
