SIDIT success Story
The Golden Nordic Ski Club (GNSC) aims to provide their members with world-class ski trails that create a sense of awe through excellent grooming, wonderful views, and trails for all levels of experience. Starting as a modest BC Forest Recreation Site, the Golden Nordic Ski Club trail system has been developed by club members for over 20 years and represents countless volunteer hours designing, fundraising and constructing trails for all skier abilities. The Club has received over $100,000 in grants from SIDIT since 2010 to improve trails, new groomer, expansion of buildings and parking. SIDIT funding was leveraged to create projects that were over $1.4 million and helped create 8 direct new jobs.
Jeff Dolinsky, President of the Golden Nordic Ski Club Society, says, "The word is out in the Nordic ski community that Golden offers a world class Nordic skiing experience. Our strong volunteer base, community support, beautiful trail system, new day-use chalet, as well as our strategic location next to Kicking Horse Mountain Resort contributed to our success. The grant from SIDIT has helped propel our growth and we thank the SIDIT Board for their support."
