Jess4Kids Scholarship Fund

Jessica Eaman was a vibrant young woman who died tragically in a motor vehicle accident in March of 2012 at the age of 26. Jessica was passionate about cross-country skiing, the environment, and sustainable living.

Jessica was an avid cross-country skier at Sovereign Lake Nordic Club. She started skiing as a child in the Jackrabbits program. She raced, coached, and at the time of her accident, she was working at Sovereign Lake and studying at UBC. She was a face recognized for her smile, her expertise in fitting newbies up with skis and describing the trails. She played a large part in the day to day operations and showed immense support for the children and youth in the Jackrabbits program at Sovereign Lake Nordic Club.

The JESS4KIDS fund (Jessica Eaman Ski Scholarship 4 Kids), created in Jessica’s memory, provides funds to children and youth who would not otherwise be able to afford cross-country skiing or snowshoeing opportunities at Sovereign Lake Nordic Club.

To apply for funding through the Jess4Kids Fund please contact the Sovereign Lake Nordic Club directly. The Jess4Kids Committee reviews all applications prior to approval.

Black Prince Dinners

 

SOVEREIGN LAKE WILL NOT BE OPERATING BLACK PRINCE DINNERS IN 2020-21 DUE TO COVID CONSTRAINTS. 

Welcome to a new season of our Black Prince Dinner offerings. This season we will be hosting five events throughout the winter showcasing exceptional three-course dining with the allure of a short backcountry hike. Dining is just 1 hour away via snowshoe to our most unique, rustic yet romantic cabin getaway. Candlelight white linen seating, contemporary food offerings served by professional caterers and new friendships will be the highlight of your visit.

The tour to the cabin, however, is not to be forgotten either. We commence our tour from the day lodge after sorting out rentals and passes. We will weave through our braid work of Sovereign Lake snowshoe trails under the light of the stars and headlamps.

Where to Meet: Sovereign Lake Day Lodge (250 Sovereign Lake Rd.)

Time to Meet: 4:45pm (depart onto the trails at 5pm) Please arrive by 4:40 to pick up rental equipment and sign in.

The hike in: The hike will take the group roughly 1.25hrs to walk into the cabin via either Wild Goose or Cabin Fever.

Dinner Schedule: We will commence dinner at roughly 6:15 and will conclude at roughly 8:15pm.

Cost: $115/pp (includes trail ticket, rentals, guide and 3 course dinner)
Event Dates:  None in 2020-21
