The North Thompson Recreation Society has been providing a ski and snowshoe program for Barriere Secondary School grade 8 students now for four years.   Students in the program this year have been enjoying great skiing and a “snowshoe for knowledge” trail at Barriere Forks Park.  Students stop along the way to identify trees, antlers, wood and animal tracks. The program is facilitated by Recreation Society member and coach, Mary MacLennan.
