Family Fun Day at Bull Mountain goes Jan. 6

The Williams Lake Cross Country Ski Club is inviting everyone to attend Bull Mountain’s annual Family Fun Day.

The Williams Lake Cross Country Ski Club is inviting everyone to attend Bull Mountain’s annual Family Fun Day.

The event, said organizer Betty Donahue, is a great opportunity for the entire family or individuals to try out cross-country skiing — even if you’ve never skied before.

“The emphasis here is on having fun learning basic techniques without having to buy skis,” Donahue said.

She added skis, boots and poles will be provided to those who need them, but asked those who do have them to bring their own to ensure everyone gets a chance to ski.

“Members of the Williams Lake Cross Country Ski Club will also be there to provide free lessons,” she said. “It’s a great chance to come see what it’s all about.

“Instructors will help you develop that technique that gets you easily down the track.”

The event is scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 6 from 1 to 3 p.m. but will be cancelled if temperatures dip below -15 C.

Everyone participating in Family Fun Day is asked to dress warm and in layers, in order to peel down as they warm up.

Bull Mountain Ski Area, the home of the Williams Lake Cross Country Ski Club, is located 16 kilometres north of Williams Lake and boasts 28 kilometres of groomed trails good for classic- or skate-skiing.

The ski area also features a lit section stretching 3.5 kilometres that is open until 10 p.m. daily.
