Crosscountry ski club to host Family Fun Day

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas — because that means cross-country skiing at Bull Mountain.

This Cariboo gem features 28 kilometres of cross-country ski trails.

Three-and-a-half kilometres of the trails are lit for night skiing until 10 p.m.

Trails are groomed for both classic and skating style of skiing.

This year the club has brand new track-setting equipment and volunteers have already put in many hours grooming the ski trails.

The Williams Lake Crosscountry Ski Club is hosting Family Fun Day at Bull Mountain on Sunday, Jan. 5 from 1 to 3 p.m.

Skiers of all abilities are invited to try the free cross-country ski lessons with volunteer instructors from our club.

This is your chance to learn how to stride and glide and how to safely get up and down the hills.

There is no charge to use the trails on Family Fun Day.

This event is being sponsored by Caribou Ski and Barking Spider Bike Shop.

Caribou Ski will be providing free demo no-wax skis, poles and boots.

Skiers who have their own gear are encouraged to use their own skis.

Remember to dress in layers to avoid overheating.

To discover more about this wonderful facility, please check out the Williams Lake Crosscountry Ski Club website at www.bullmountain.ca.

Do a little snow dance and come join us at Family Fun Day at Bull Mountain on Jan. 5.
