News from the Board

Welcome to Durango Nordic's new and improved website! We hope you like it. Getting a new website was identified as a priority this year for the Durango Nordic Ski Club for many reasons. With mobile devices and new web technology, we needed to keep up with these changes as much as anything. Also, we wanted to feature the beauty and activities at the Nordic Center for potential visitors and the local community. Nordic Club families all know how fortunate we are to have this resource; sharing it with potential visits is critical as they provide much needed revenue to support operations. Please check out the calendar of events for new and ongoing events. New events include the Alpine Bank Howler, a full moon bonfire and schmorgesborg at the Nordic Center in February and March, and the McDonald's Twilight Nights, a short track race series for nordic skiers, fat bikers and snowshoers at the base of Purgatory on Wednesday nights in January.

You will also notice that the homepage and sponsor page feature businesses that are supporting the Durango Nordic Ski Club. We have been incredibly blessed to have generous support from many local businesses and individuals. Please visit the sponsor page to see who these businesses are and make sure you at least thank them for their support or, even better, support their businesses as they are supporting us. Their funds will be used for much needed capital improvements for the Nordic Center and Team such as grooming equipment and team transportation. Many of these may not be seen until the coming year when we have sufficient capital to make these improvements.

Finally, we tried to improve the information that is provided for current and prospective parents for the Nordic team. This includes up-to-date program information, event, and registration information, a team blog, and photos of our awesome community. We hope you find this new website useful and are open to your feedback on how to continuously improve it.
