New Year New Thursday Club Night

Welcome to 2022  Let’s hope the snow is as good as last year and that we are soon able to ski in the local forests that are currently still closed because of the damage the Storm Arwen caused.  We are talking with FLS in the hope of getting the trails partially cleared this winter.  More on this as soon as we hear but at the moment the forests (both Clash & Gartly Moor remain closed).

This has lead to the cancellation of the Ski O we had planned & we wait to see if the Clash Dash can go ahead.  (Please the Club Event page for our current plans)

FIS World Snow day is set for Sunday 16 January and will be at the Huntly Nordic and Outdoor Centre from 10:00 to 13:00.  More details in next few days.

Club nights kick off again tomorrow at the Centre from 19:30 to 21:00 (current covid rules apply and allow for a safe club ski).  We would like to trial a new system of booking in for the club sessions.  Having moved our administration to “Spond” we would like to trial using the same system that have been successfully working for some of the Junior sessions.  So we have created a Thursday Club Night group.  There are options for you to use the group shown below.

Option 1 – already a Spond app user

* For those people who already use the Spond app on a mobile device, please just enter the group code (ZGGFF) at the bottom of the “Groups” page and follow the instructions. 

Option 2 – happy to download the Spond app

* For those who do not have the app yet, but would like to use it, please click below to get a download link:

https://group.spond.com/ZGGFF

Then follow the instructions to join the group. 

Option 3 – don’t like the idea of an app

* If you would rather not download the Spond app, you can still join the group and be notified of events by e-mail. In this case, please contact chair@nordicski.co.uk and you will be added to the group manually. You will receive an email invitation to respond to and then an invitation to join the group.

Once you have joined the HNSC Club Sessions group (through app or email), you will have access (via the Spond app) to the calendar of events. You will automatically receive an invitation to each event 24-hrs prior and will be asked to accept or decline. There will also be the option to send a message to the organiser if there are any queries. You can choose to leave the group at any time.

Option 4 

One of the coaches will add you to the group when you come to club night.  

We will of course be happy to talk to people about this at club sessions.

One of the main advantage for all of us is that we won’t need to out in all our details each time we sign up to a Club night.  

(We will review how this goes but the experience of the other groups has been good)

You can decide on the night if you want to join the coached session or not. If you want to bring your own (old) skis for using the mat that could be very helpful until the centre’s new skis are available – it gives the skis a good polish but if you don’t do too many sessions it should cause no real damage. But don’t feel you have to bring your own skis, definitely don’t bring your new or best skis
