Whistler Nordics Dryland Training
The Whistler Nordics focus on bringing Nordic skiing to community members and visitors to Whistler. Half of this club are youth and the club operates a Skill Development Program for children and youth to introduce them to a fun outdoor recreational activity in a group environment. The Whistler Nordics hold summer and fall dry-land training and summer camps.
The Community Foundation of Whistler is proud to have supported the Whistler Nordics in the purchase of rollerskis for their dry-land training program in 2011. The rollerskis allow participants to train year-round and enter the race season fit and ready for competition. This past year, the year-round training allowed the club to enter provincial and national events for the first time!
The grant to the Whistler Nordics was made through the Whistler Youth Foundation program.
