Youngsters enjoyed the werewolf who attended the North Thompson Rec Society Full Moon Howl.

It was a howl

Another successful Full Moon Howl put on by the North Thompson Rec Society (NTRS) took place two weekends ago at the Barriere Forks ski trails with approximately 50 people participating.

The day started out with the weekly children’s cross country ski lesson, followed by dinner in the club’s cosy warming hut, and then an enchanting candlelight ski along the Barriere river. Once again our animated werewolf showed up to lead everyone in an entertaining howling contest and prizes were given to the most enthralling howlers. A big thank you to all the great volunteers who help to made this such an enjoyable event.

The NTRS cross country ski lesson for children ages four to 12 are well underway, as well as a new cross country ski program offered this year to the Secondary school’s grade 8 classes. Adult ski lessons were offered on Jan. 15, and the club’s ‘ski and teas’ continue to takes place every Tuesday at 11 a.m. The club is also planning a night ski for the next full moon in February.

Thanks to the diligent groomers, the Barriere Forks ski trails are in great shape for cross country skiing, and the trails provide a variety of ski terrain for all levels of skiers, from beginners to advance. New members are always welcome to join in on the fun.
