Thank You for an Amazing Season!

And that’s a wrap!  We are so thankful for our amazing ski community this winter. There are so many new faces, and club members skiing more than they ever have before. We know that our facility was a saving grace for our community, keeping everyone safe, spaced, and healthy. Kudos go out to our amazing staff, volunteer committees, and Board Members for keeping Sovereign open for everyone to use this season.

The yellow gate will be locked effective Sunday evening so please park in the lower parking lot if you intend to ski more days on ungroomed trails this spring. Please recognize that the lodge is closed effective April 11th and there are no inside facilities or first aid available.

We can’t wait to see you in November! Season Passes and Programs Registrations go on sale June 1st.

All the best this spring.

Troy Hudson – SLNC General Manager

Last Day Extended Hours on Sunday April 11th: 7am – 4pm

Our Programs skiers are planning to do solo 50/75/100 km skis on Sunday morning before the snow softens. To support the group we will be opening the lodge at 7 am and making sure that the washrooms are open by then. Many of the kids are starting at 5 am so help us cheer them on. Good luck in your year-end push and please stop by the ticket windows when you are done to say bye! It has been a great, albeit strange season.

Putting Your Skis To Bed For Summer

Keep those skis fast and fresh next fall by getting a summer storage wax done at Sovereign Lake. For $20 we will summer prep your skis with a steel brush and a universal glide wax, plus we will even scrape them for you in the fall when you are ready to hit the trails again. We will accept skis until April 9th with all skis being picked up by April 11th.

Summer Storage Brush and Hot Wax:  $20.00 + taxes. 

Reflecting on our Closure This Day Last Year

COVID-19: It has been exactly one year since our club was turned upside down. With a forced closure notice across the province of all BC Parks, Sovereign operations ended abruptly for the 2019-20 season.
What was to come over the next year brought sorrow to so many who lost loved ones, many lost jobs and all were separated from friends and family through forced lockdowns and restrictions. Thank you to our PHO for guiding us safely through this challenging year.
There is a glowing light at the end of this long tunnel. We are so fortunate to have a family here at Sovereign to keep our facility open through this long pandemic. Your kind words of support are so appreciated as we wrap up this challenging season.
We miss our friends from afar deeply but rejoice in the fact that next winter, things may return to some semblance of normalcy.
Thank you for this amazing season. SLNC closes for the winter on April 11th, 2021.
Happy Spring Everyone!
Troy Hudson –  SLNC General Manager

Nordic Pulse Trail Grooming Tool is LIVE!

Sovereign Lake is excited to announce that we are the first club to fully integrate and embed the new Nordic Pulse Grooming App in Canada within their website.

Nordic Pulse was born out of a desire to make grooming reports easier to find for skiers and to help clubs share their trail conditions. Julien Locke (SLNC website developer and former NST athlete) believed strongly that deciding where and when to ski should be a quick, easy, and fun experience. After years of wading through outdated websites, online spreadsheets, snow phones, user-reported blogs, and the like, it was time to create a new platform.

Nordic Pulses’ objective is to make grooming reporting easier for ski areas. Grooming teams work long nights preparing the corduroy for the coming day’s skiers, and the last thing the groomers want to do at the end of a long shift is to fiddle around with logging in to a website or updating a spreadsheet with cold fingers.

With Nordic Pulse, grooming teams simply enable the in-app GPS tracker while they groom and the app syncs the data to our server every few seconds. With both AutoSync and offline storage capacity, Nordic Pulse is optimized to work in a variety of scenarios such as sending real-time data through cellular data, bulk uploading whenever the snowcat passes through the stadium and briefly connects to the club’s wifi connection, or operating fully offline and out of service.

We are excited to offer this modern and sophisticated grooming reporting program to our website to provide our membership and visitors a quick reference tool for the latest groomed trails. Tell us what you think. We are excited to get some customer feedback.
