Sovereign Lake Nordic Club has one of the most successful S’Cool Ski Programs in British Columbia with over 3000 skier visits by Grade 3-12 youth during the 2019/20 season. With 4 participating school districts, we offer fun and unique winter outdoor experiences with fully certified instructors and high-quality rental equipment at an affordable price.

Our goal is to run our S’Cool Ski Program with as few modifications as possible and to keep children, Teachers, Parents and Staff safe, in spite of Covid-19.

Why S’Cool Ski?
The Sovereign Lake Nordic Club S’Cool Ski Program gives students the opportunity to learn cross country skiing and snow shoeing in a fun and safe environment.
The S’Cool Ski curriculum is part of a nationally sanctioned Cross Country Canada (CCC) program and follows the Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model, currently supported by all Sport Canada Programs.

Skiing
“Fit for Life” is Sport Canada’s term describing the need for participation in activities which allow for continual involvement throughout all stages of life. Cross Country is the perfect activity for introducing dynamic balance, cardio-vascular exercise and healthy living habits, all of which are essential to health and happiness. Skiing is a great way to keep active during the winter months.

Snow Shoeing
Snow Shoeing has been winter’s fastest growing for almost a decade now. Sovereign Lake Nordic Centre has over 14kms of designated, well-marked snowshoe trails and endless powder!
Snow shoeing offers an opportunity for cardio-vascular fitness, dynamic balance and is an amazing way to experience the Canadian Wilderness! Snow shoeing is a valuable addition to your S’Cool ski experience or part of your outdoor education/natural science programs. Students learn about flora, fauna, fitness, map-reading, survival and wilderness safety.

Our CANSI (Canadian Association of Nordic Ski Instructors) and NCCP (National Coaching Certification Program) certified Instructors will break your class into small groups while they guide your students through an hour of fun-filled education. Each student will receive assistance while learning the basic skills involved in sliding on snow, climbing hills and of course their favourite… the downhills.
