Bringing Nordic Skiing Enthusiasts Together in the Greater Seattle and Snoqualmie Pass Region!

The mission of the Snoqualmie Nordic Club is to inspire people of all ages and abilities to learn, develop and grow in the sport of Nordic skiing in the greater Seattle and Snoqualmie Pass region. We are passionate about building a supportive, welcoming community that provides educational programs for beginners to advanced skiers, promotes information sharing around Nordic skiing, and engages in exhilarating and health-promoting fun for all ages while experiencing the natural beauty of the great outdoors. 

Snoqualmie Nordic Club (SNC) was formed in 1997 and is registered as a non-profit corporation with the State of Washington and the United States Ski Association. SNC was originally formed for the purpose of providing coaching and instruction to junior racers of the Snoqualmie Pass region and has evolved into a community-based organization that provides opportunities for all ages to learn and grow in the sport of Nordic skiing. SNC is comprised of members of all ages and maintains an open membership policy. 

Come join us!

  • Treats on the Trail Saturday Feb 22
    Summary of the event:

    We all had a great time at Saturday's Treats on the Trails on the Ironhorse. We served 126 treats and drinks and the link below is for some photos courtesy of Paul Nelson, Sharon Chen and myself. Also, the Jenteloppet trail grooming was a big success. Folks hung out down down by the lake the taking photos and enjoying the new trail and sometimes doing loops or skiing back and forth in front of the little island. The trail was very well used and about 75-80% of the folks we tipped off to the grooming (which was everyone that passed our Treats tent) ended up skiing the trail. We collected almost 2 pages of signatures from folks that would like to see the trail groomed regularly. For those who asked when it would be groomed again, our grant covers grooming for two more weekends. We are checking now with the Parks Dept folks to see if it can be groomed the next two coming weekends.

    --------------------
     
    Yes folks, we now have snow! As usual, we will host a fun for every one Treats on the Trail out on the Iron Horse. We will set up at our normal spot - in sight of the parking lot. If you would like to donate baked goods, there is still time to mix and bake and bring your contributions out to the site. Most of all we hope you can come out and have some fun! Bring your friends, kids or come all by your lonesome to socialize or just grab a quick treat! 

    When: Saturday February 22,  2014, 11AM - 2:30 PM, 
    Where: Park at Hyak Snopark (WA State Park), ski about 1 km out on the Iron Horse Trail. Our tent and banner are visible from the parking lot, just before the curve in the trail.
    What: Treats on the Trails. This is our ninth year (!) of holding this very popular and social event, which is based on the Scandinavian tradition of skiing to a destination for warm drinks, sweet treats and socializing with fellow skiers. This even is great for families. We will setup a station with warm drinks and sweets along the Iron Horse Trail. This is a great opportunity for kids to play and adults to take a break before or after a longer ski. We will once again aim for creating our signature snow cafe and kids are welcome to help!

    Hope to see you on Saturday!

  • Treats on Trail instead of Jente Loppet this Sat. Feb 8
    As you know, the snow is too thin to allow grooming of the "Jente Loop" down to the lake, so we have cancelled the race and will instead do a fun time Treats on the Trail. We will set up at our normal spot - in sight of the parking lot. We are not doing a big push to recruit bakers, but I know we will at least have brownies and hot drinks. If you feel moved to bake, we welcome the input, but most of all we hope you can come out and have some fun. 

    When: Saturday February 8,  2014, 11AM - 3PM, 
    Where: Less than 2 km out on the Iron Horse Trail east from the Hyak SnoPark

  • Snoqualmie Loppet This Sunday (March 10)
    A bunch of us are going up to ski around the Mt. Catherine Loop and then on the Ironhorse through Crystal Springs on to Cabin Creek - i.e. the Snoqualmie Loppet! We start early, meeting in the Old Milwaukee Lodge at Summit East. Some of us will park cars at Cabin Creek to provide transportation back to Hyak. There are a lot of folks going up and you can contact Derek, John and other SNC folks to learn more and possibly arrange a car-pool. 

    There will also be some SNC people doing refreshment support near Crystal Springs on the Ironhorse. People are also encouraged to meet up there - perhaps ski a "mini-loppet" if you don't feel ready for the whole shebang. 

    To learn more about the event, visit the Snoqualmie Loppet Web Page.

    See you Sunday on the Snow!
