Trail Work

12 Oct 2016

Bruce Wurtele

22 Oct 2016 … 13 Nov 2016

Fall means trail work at Kawartha Nordic! Trail clearing and volunteer weekends will be planned throughout October and November with dates posted to the website. What's involved? Simply hiking the trails, removing branches, sticks and large stones from the trail bed, and cutting back any branches that interfere with safe skiing from the side of the trail. If you come across any large fallen trees send us an email to let us know the location. A volunteer coordinator will be at the Woodfine Chalet at the beginning of the day and will leave instructions for those arriving later in the day

  • October 22 and 23 between 9am and 3pm
  • October 30 between 10am and 3pm.
  • November 6 between 10am and 3pm.
  • November 13 between 10am and 3pm.

No need to RSVP, just try to make it up when you can. Please bring work gloves, work boots/ footwear, snacks and drinks, loppers, handsaws, trimmers or any other equipment you might make good use of. And be sure to leave a note on the chalk board of the Woodfine chalet to let us know which trail you've worked on (latest photo below).

Thank you for attending the Ontario Midget Championships 2016 at Kawartha Nordic. We hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as we enjoyed hosting you.

CTV aired a spot on our Championships on the Saturday CTV News at 6. The segment is at about 34:15.


We had two instances that required a review of the video to be sure of results in Sunday's Mass Start races. Check out the video evidence below.

OMC Schedule Change

27 Feb 2016

Todd Harris

 Sunday's event schedule has been adjusted to try and stay ahead of the warm weather forecast for the day, and allow everyone a good opportunity to participate.

  • 9:30am Midget Boys 4.4km Freestyle Mass Start
  • 9:45am Midget Girls 4.4km Freestyle Mass Start
  • 10:05am Peewee Boys 3.1km Freestyle Mass Start
  • 10:20am Peewee Girls 3.1km Freestyle Mass Start

We will endeavour to have our lunch service start earlier (hopefully at 10:30am)

The 4x60m Team Sprints will begin at 11:30am and follow the same order as the Mass Start event.

Please note that the pre-ski with Perianne Jones has been cancelled to allow coaches to work with their athletes pre-race despite the shortened schedule.

Immediately following the final sprint, we will hold our awards ceremony including

  • Mass Start Awards
  • Team Sprint Awards
  • Technique Awards
  • Team Awards

Thank you for your understanding and flexibility.
