3 Creek Ranch Nordic Ski Program

2017-2018 Winter Season



3 Creek Ranch Nordic Update, November 16, 2017

Greetings from the Nordic Center,

All things Nordic will again be based out of the Nordic Center (Golf Pro Shop) for the upcoming season. This is a warm and elegant place to meet before and after scheduled clinics, enjoy a hot refreshment and simply relax. The track will be open to Classic andSkate skiers, those on snowshoes (along the outer edge of the groomed track), snow bikes and dogs. We kindly ask everyone to be considerate and respectful of the guidelines we set forth for each of these activities.

Each season we are deeply committed to providing you with a gratifying and enriching Nordic Program. I believe we are delivering that commitment with new additions to the weekly schedule, rental equipment, and new apparel and accessories for your nordic and alpine needs from the following vendors: Craft Sportwear (www.craftsports.com); HestraGloves (www.hestragloves.com); Skida (www.skida.com); Zeal Goggles (www.zealoptics.com) andStik Women’s Beanies (www.shitthatiknit.com). We will also have great holiday gift options available in the Nordic shop from Kaenon, KJUS, Maui Jim, and Will Leather Goods.

- We will be offering full ski wax/repair services and ski storage in the NordicCenter.
- You will receive a weekly schedule every Wednesday with specific details and information about instructional clinics and off-site activities.
-  A morning trail grooming report.
-  New this season is a limited fleet of Rental ‘touring’ cross-country skis, boots and poles, including junior sets available in the Nordic Center.
- The Nordic Shop will be open daily from 9:00am to 5:00pm. We will be closedChristmas Eve & Day and New Year’s Day.

If you are new to Nordic skiing, or ready to upgrade your equipment, please allowme to help you choose the appropriate skis, boots, poles and clothing to ensure you get themost out of your Nordic skiing experience. Like many Outdoor Pursuits in our valley, theright equipment can and will make an important difference in how you enjoy the sport.

All my best to you and yours,

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns. I am always available to help with finding the proper clothing and ski equipment if you are new to the sport or want to take your skate or classic ski skills to the next level.
