Save these dates: Greater Helena Gives, Thursday May 3, 6:00 pm to Friday May 4, 5:59 pm
Helena’s 2017—18 cross-country ski season was extraordinary. And for your nordic ski club, expensive. On May 3—4 you’ll have the opportunity to, via ‘Greater Helena Gives’, donate online to your Last Chance Nordic Ski Club, and help us bring you another great year.
On May 3rd & 4th, LCNSC will join other area non-profit organizations for a day of local giving. As part of ‘Greater Helena Gives’, from 6:00 pm Thursday the 3rd, through 5:59 pm Friday the 4th, please donate to LCNSC and keep Helena cross-country skiing.
This year’s XC skiing was great because we had great snow, and lots of it. Helena skiers enjoyed a record 90 consecutive days of skiing on Bill Roberts Golf Course. MacDonald Pass XC Ski Trails were kept groomed all season long, and because they were groomed, are still delightfully tourable.
With this exceptional year came extra expenses. We paid more for more gas, for more groomer salaries, and for more equipment repairs and replacement. It’s true, LCNSC enjoys generous grant support from local charities, the Forest Service Helena District, and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks. Helena’s City Parks & Recreation is a great partner. And this year LCNSC members donated over 700 hours of volunteer labor. But when all is said and done, it’s your donations and membership dues that keep Helena’s XC ski trails groomed.
Celebrate this year’s fabulous Helena-area XC skiing while doing your part to help insure a wonderful upcoming season. On May 3 & 4, please make a donation on the ‘Greater Helena Gives’ website to Last Chance Nordic Ski Club. Your gift will help keep Helena’s cross-country ski trails well groomed and free to everyone.
