2016-17 PAGOSA NORDIC CLUB SPONSORSHIP
The Pagosa Nordic Club (PNC) invites you to consider a sponsorship in support of the Club’s Groomed Nordic Skiing Trails project. Pagosa Nordic Club (PNC) is a non profit 100% volunteer organization dedicated “To enhance winter recreational opportunities by maintaining accessible groomed winter ski trails for skate skiing, classic cross country skiing and snowshoeing & to encourage and promote the use of these winter trails through education, marketing and events.” The PNC operates on sponsorships and donations from our community.
For 7+ years now, The PNC has been the local advocate for groomed X-C Ski trails and has promoted all groomed winter trails through the development and distribution of X-C Ski Trail Map brochures, the PNC web page, daily trail reports on KWUF and KSUT, advertising in Albuquerque, SW Colorado and the Denver Front Range. The Pagosa Nordic Club (PNC) grooms 35km+ of X-C Ski Trails, the Pagosa Ranger District (FS) grooms 15 km, Wolf Creek Ski Area grooms 10km and the Wolf Creek Trail Blazer snowmobile club grooms 100 miles of multi-use trails. New for 2016-17, PNC has added two private ranch venues, providing at least another 20km of trails. Details announced soon.
PNC will also be coordinating the following events scheduled for the 2016-17 season:
