The current snow levels are typically what you would see in February so we groomed this morning. Please see the trail conditions page for more information. So if you want to get some fresh air and exercise come up. The chalet is closed but the washrooms are open.
April 1st was the last day the chalet was open, and grooming was done. See you next year! Any emergencies call 911.
Telemark said if you keep coming we will stay open. Saturday saw many people skiing and snowshoeing on our trails. For our club members we will be grooming, and open from 9-3PM on Sunday, April 1. There is lots of snow, sunshine and fresh air. Trail passes and rental equipment will be available all day.
Thank you for a great season. The Youth Program Coaches have setup a little end of season adventure game. It is designed for you and your family and friends to participate. Maps are available in the chalet to help guide your adventure. Click here for a copy for your own.
Objective: visit the stations and collect points (indicated in the circles 2, 4, 6 & 8). Collect a sticker or two from the envelop at each location.
Take your family or take your friends. Enjoy

Over the next week “Daughter of the Wolf” will be filming in the night, on the Telemark property. If you see a wolf it is one of fourteen wolves that are being used during filming at our club. The filming will also have handlers and actors on the property.
The Telemark Nordic Club would like to thank the volunteers, parents, spectators, staff, members, first aid team, race committee and competitors for making this weekend’s event a big success. It was great to see athletes from the USA competing, as well as our very own Telemark Biathlon Team. We will see you again next year! Click here for a Global News article about the competition.
Our club is growing. In an effort to manage our growth, your Board of Directors is exploring options to expand our chalet and remodel the buildings in the vicinity of the stadium. Telemark members are invited to participate in the project. We are looking for your ideas and suggestions on the following topics:
1) Chalet Expansion
• How can we expand our building to accommodate the needs of our growing membership (e.g. wax room, rentals, eating area)?
2) Site Plan (stadium area)
• We currently have several external buildings (e.g. washrooms, storage shed, Quonset hut) on site. Are they meeting the needs of the club? Are we missing anything?
• The size and scope of the project will be determined by available fundraising resources. Please share your ideas on how we can generate financial capital for the project.
Action: we encourage you to write your ideas on the Ideas Board that is posted in the chalet. The poster board will remain up until the end of the season. The Telemark Executive will collate your ideas in the off-season and present options to the membership at the Annual General Meeting in October.
