Some young nordic ski club members help out setting tracks for skiers on Stuart Lake.

Watch for tracks!

Keep a look out for cross country ski tracks and please try to minimize any damage to the volunteer-set track.

While there are usually a number of tracks on the lake and through the woods in the winter, the majority would normally be snowmobile tracks.

But there is another type of tracks people need to watch out for now – cross country ski tracks.

The Stuart Lake Nordic Ski Club will once again be working on introducing cross-country ski tracks in town.

They have been grooming 20 km of trail on the lake in the past couple of years, and are working on other in-town trail locations such as for Nak’albun School.

As they introduce trails, they need help to ensure the trails are undamaged for skier use.

Multiple sled crossings and foot prints reduce the safety and enjoyment of skiers.

The club would appreciate attention to the trails as hours of volunteer labour go into creating this service for the town.

Sledders: Please cross the tracks at right angles to minimize damage. Try to limit the number of places you cross.

Walkers: Try to stay off the parallel tracks the skis slide in by walking in the middle. We know you can’t stop Fido, but do what you can to keep your own feet to the middle.

The nordic skiers of Fort St. James thank you!
