About Us

Whiskey Jack Nordic Ski Club is based in Fort St John, BC, Canada.  200+ members enjoy the club's activities and many contribute volunteer support in enhancing the ski experience.

We have an extensive, groomed trail system at Beatton Provincial Park on Charlie Lake, a 15 minute drive from the city of Fort St. John. Trails are groomed for both classic and skate skiing. Additional trails are available for skijoring, snowshoeing and hiking.
