The only thing better than a day-trip on skinny skis, is TWO days on skinny skis. Or three. Or four!
Nordic Racers organize at least two weekend trips per season to loppets in South Western BC. Accommodation is arranged and posted on this website, and we carpool to our destination.

We solicit members to volunteer their time to organize trips (mainly accommodation). If you are interested, please contact any of the club executive with the trip you would like to plan and your accommodation will be compensated in exchange for your work.
