Larch Hills Nordic Society, Salmon Arm, BC: Chalet Expansion Project $25,000 SIDIT Grant

From Grant Recipient:

We are very pleased to let you know we had an official opening ceremony for the expanded Larch Hills Chalet on January 3rd. The project is now complete, with the exception of a few finishing touches in the kitchen and the construction of the handicapped washroom which will happen in the Spring. The Chalet Expansion project has been featured in articles in our local newspaper and “Ski Cross Country” which is the annual magazine of our provincial sport governing body (Cross Country B.C.). The new Larch Hills Chalet has received great reviews from all user groups. The building has been very busy and well used so far this ski season. The annual Reino Keski Salmi Loppet was held January 20, 2019, and for the first time ever there was plentiful warm shelter for event participants. The Chalet is featured prominently in a promotional YouTube video which has been created by the event organizers.

We are so grateful for the support that we received from SIDIT and are thrilled that we have been able to see this project through to completion. We believe this building will benefit our community in so many ways – and so far we have received incredibly positive feedback from locals and visitors to the area. We are so glad to be able to provide this beautiful warm, bright shelter to users of the Larch Hills Recreation Area.
