Sit Ski Storage Needed
Looking for Volunteer(s)

The Larch Hills Nordic Society now has a collection of sit skis.  There are also a few youth members that are now using those sit skis on a regular basis thanks to an incredible amount of work Donna Flatman has dedicated to this program.

We are looking for a volunteer who could build a storage cabinet outside the basement of the chalet for the sit skis to be safely stored.  The cost of supplies would be covered, and we are looking for a Larch Hills volunteer to do the construction.

If you are interested in helping with this project, please contact Donna Flatman at 250-832-1362(home) or 250-832-4044(work) or email at
