The Nordic ski season is off to a fairly early start in the Vernon area.
The Sovereign Lake Nordic Club, north east of Vernon, opened 15 kilometres of trails this morning, with a snow base of about 10 centimetres.
“Get ready to be inundated with ski pictures in your social media feeds because SLNC is open for business for the 2018-19 ski season,” says a posting on the SLNC’s website.
The club says more trails will be opened as snow conditions permit.
“Please be aware that our snowshoe trails are not yet open due to a shallow snowpack in the trees.”
Silver Star Mountain Resort is reporting a 28 cm base, with its Nordic season scheduled to open Nov. 16th, and the alpine season on the 22nd.
