PREECEVILLE- The Preeceville Nordic Club has eagerly been awaiting a dump of snow and it’s finally here, stated Megan Maier, one of the coordinators.

“Our cross-country ski club remains small but very active with training and competitions,” she said. Preeceville Nordic member Isaiah Maier is on the Sask provincial ski team and Hudson and Levi are on the Sask development ski team. In addition to dryland and on-snow training at home they have been skiing in Lake Louise, raced in Sovereign Lake, B.C. and La Ronge, and are looking forward to competitions in Canmore, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina and Nationals in Gatineau, Quebec.

“We’re looking forward to the rest of the exciting ski season ahead,” continued Maier. “If you are interested in becoming a Preeceville Nordic club member we have a link online at and search Preeceville Nordic membership 2023/24. The cost is $27 and you receive a Preeceville Nordic training hat/toque for free when you register. This gives you trail insurance and helps support our club to get additional funding for things like ski equipment for the public’s use.”

The newest project that is in the works is gathering a fleet of skis for members of the public to rent for daily or weekly use.

“We already have some sets of skis and boots available so if you are wanting to try skiing and want to rent a pair for a small fee, give us a message through our Preeceville Nordic Facebook page or email or text/phone Kim at (306) 547-9444 and we can see if we have your size available. At the moment we don’t have any child or adult lessons being offered. 

“We are separate from the dedicated group who is doing an amazing job keeping the Preeceville Lion’s family trails groomed. We are very grateful for these nice trails to ski on.”

According to the Lions’ latest Facebook update, “Preeceville Lions Family trail is ready for skiing. With the recent eight inches of snow, conditions are excellent and all trails are open on the north side of town. The ski chalet is open and trail passes for the 2024 season are only $30 for an individual and $40 per family and you can buy your pass at the town office or you can e-transfer to”.

“We are hoping to host our second annual loppet which was well-attended last year, so stay tuned for the date,” concluded Maier.
