Beautiful weather for Family Fun Day

The Williams Lake Cross Country Ski Club hosted its annual Family Fun Day Sunday.

It was blue skies, sunshine and freshly groomed trails at Bull Mountain Sunday when the Williams Lake Cross Country Ski Club hosted its annual Family Fun Day.

Betty Donahue, Family Fun Day organizer and WLCCSC member, said 37 people took advantage of the beautiful weather, trails and free cross-country ski lessons offered by club members. Of the 37 people who took advantage of the free day of skiing, 10 were kids.

“There were many rosy, smiling faces to be seen,” Donahue said. “Ten club members instructed the participants in the finer points of cross-country skiing. Caribou Ski Source for Sports and Barking Spider provided the demo skis, boots and poles.”

Donahue added further adult lessons are being offered by the club on Wednesday nights at 6 p.m. and on Sundays at 1 p.m. until Jan. 27. Participants must provide their own equipment, but the lessons are free and no pre registration is required.
