2016 Annual Memberships
Membership Drive Early Bird Prizes
UPDATE 2 November: Early bird discount window has now passed, but you can still help Telemark win the provincial membership drive, plus you have one more chance to win a prize pack by purchasing your membership by December 1. There is snow on all the peaks surrounding us now and it is only a matter of days until you will need to get your ski gear ready. Phil and the grooming team have been working all summer to improve early season grooming, so we are expecting an early opening date this year. Don’t be kicking yourself every time you have to pay for a day pass this winter — get a membership so you can ski or snowshoe as much as your spirit takes you.
The glove was dropped by Cross Country BC (CCBC). The Club that signs the most new members by December 1 wins. We are competing with Sovereign Lake, Kimberley, Caledonia, and Larch Hills to bring new members into the sport. And CCBC is backing up the challenge with some impressive prizes to the winning club. Encourage your neighbours, friends, co-workers, and family to purchase a membership this year! Let’s win this!
To get our membership momentum going, Telemark Nordic is offering 4 early bird prize draws. You are automatically entered for each remaining prize draw when you purchase an annual membership prior to 11:59 PM on the draw date. Hint: buy your membership by October 8th to participate in all four draws.1
First draw: October 8, 2016. Congratulations Jeannette Van Eldik!
