Whiskey Jack Nordic Ski Club appreciates the selfless volunteering of our friends across the province for helping us organize and onsite support during the Games! Thanks to officials from Caledonia Nordic in Prince George, Revelstoke and Rossland.
Getting ready for the Games!
Volunteers with the Whiskey Jack Nordic Ski Club have been preparing for the Games since 2017. Officials training has been offered to enthusiastic people over the past 2 years. This training provides an introduction to managing ski competitions.
The stadium area was completed during the fall of 2018. This is an important step in preparation for the Games. This area, in addition to being an ideal spot for ski school lessons, is the focus area for race starts and finishes. It will provide spectators a great view of the action!
Our new timing hut was installed in late 2019.
A team effort went into the construction of our mezzanine in the shop. This allow more space to accommodate the Athletes' Village during the Games!
Our latest addition to our grooming family!
