Nordic skiing a natural lifelong sport

Nordic skiing is one of those natural lifelong sports that attracts a wide variety of demographics.

If one visits here at the Gordie Howe Sports Complex on a Sunday afternoon during the winter months, they will see that statement play out for real. Skiers will fill the parking lot on the west side of Saskatoon Minor Football Field and take off to the hills and trails built on the Gordie Howe Sports Complex grounds as well as the trails on the neighbouring Holiday Park Golf Course.

The skiers include competitive ones from the Saskatoon Nordic Ski Club along with recreational skiers.

The main feature story for the new content that went live on Wednesday was an introductory piece to Nordic skiing thanks to the help of the Saskatoon Nordic Ski Club. The piece also introduces the Saskatoon Nordic Ski Club as well noting the club can trace its history back to 1928.

Along with the feature on Nordic skiing, the new content for “Howe Happenings” also includes a post of some of the coolest and sweetest constructions photos taken by our Operations Manager Johnny Marciniuk on his various constructions tours this year.

Marciniuk’s photos have proven to be quite popular this year on our social media lines.

You can find these stories on the “Howe Happenings” blog at howehappenings306.blogspot.com.

New content will be released on the ninth day of each month. We hope you will enjoy the stories that make up the posts on the “Howe Happenings” blog.
