The Prince George Citizen - - Sports - Cit­i­zen staff

Skis, snow­shoes, poles, boots, bind­ings.

All are nec­es­sary to tackle the snowy trails in and around Prince Ge­orge and the Caledonia Nordic Ski Club is mak­ing all that gear a lit­tle more af­ford­able this week­end.

The club’s annual ski swap of used gear is on for this Satur­day from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Caledonia head­quar­ters at Ot­way Nordic Cen­tre, just west of the city at 8141 Ot­way Road.

Peo­ple want­ing to sell their gear on con­sign­ment can drop it off at the Ro­tary Lodge on Fri­day from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Equip­ment not sold should be picked up Satur­day be­tween 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. The club will col­lect a 20 per cent com­mis­sion on sold equip­ment, which will fund its win­ter pro­grams.

This is the last week­end for early-bird pric­ing on club mem­ber­ships, which al­low ac­cess to the cross-coun­try and snow­shoe­ing trails at Ot­way.

Early-bird prices, which in­clude Cross-County B.C. mem­ber­ships are: Ski­ing – adult/se­nior, $197; ju­nior with adult mem­ber­ship, $49; ju­nior with­out adult, $130; full-time student/adap­tive skier, $130; fam­ily of four, $456. Snow­shoe­ing – adult/se­nior, $77; ju­nior with adult, $43; ju­nior with­out adult, $49.

Cash, cheque or credit card will be ac­cepted Satur­day for mem­ber­ship pay­ments.

The Caledonia club will host the 2019 world para nordic ski­ing cham­pi­onships (cross-county and biathlon), Feb. 15-24.
