Twenty-seven years have passed since the official incorporation of the North Bay Nordic Ski Club in 1975. The Club has been at its current location on Northshore Road since the winter of 1978. Much has changed over the years – the appearance of the trails, the snow grooming equipment we employ, the clothing we wear, the ski equipment we use, and the clubhouse facilities we enjoy.
The trails that once accommodated a single snowmobile and tracksetter are now up to 6 meter width to allow both classic and skating techniques and the passage of large sophisticated snow-grooming equipment. Our clubhouse, Jackrabbit Lodge, and equipment garage have all been improved steadily over the years.
But with all these changes, many things remain constant at the North Bay Nordic Ski Club. The rugged hills of the escarpment north of Trout Lake remain as challenging and daunting as ever; the downhill runs are just as fast. And the great strength of the Club, its spirit of volunteerism, continues to drive the Club in all of its pursuits.
