Trail Update
Walden Cross Country and Walden Mountain Bike Club (WMBC) have partnered to offer winter fat biking at the Walden Trails on some single track snowshoe trails and on some skate trails. The arrangement is still in a trial phase, so feedback from all trail users is welcome throughout the season. A large component of the test this year is for fat bikers to show how courteous they can be to other trails users (Snowshoers and Skiers) and determine how interactions between the the groups will go.

An added bonus of this partnership is an additional 1.5km of snowshoe trails!

Updated snowshoe and fatbike maps are available in the Facilities section of our website.
If you have any questions or concerns, Rusty is our man;

Racers at XCSO Training Camp in North Bay.
Sudbury Nordic Racers Report
Head Coach, Marlee Clement 

The racing team was at a Cross Country Ski Ontario on snow training camp in North Bay to prepare for the race season that is quickly approaching.
Over the past few weeks the team has busy been taking advantage of the early season snow to work on technique as well as race prep and strategies. 
December kicks off the race season for the athletes as many travel to Ontario Cup 1 in Ottawa this weekend, our Woolly Hippo Meets Rudolph Loppet on the 29th, as well as Ontario Cup 2 in Thunder Bay early in the new year.
