Meet the Grooming Team

When Larry Hennig retired in 2010, he needed something to keep him busy so he joined the local Nordic ski club and began learning Nordic ski trail grooming and maintenance.  In 2016 he and his wife Alix moved to the Crowsnest Pass and Larry joined the Crowsnest Nordic Ski Club grooming team.  Since then he has been instrumental in updating the club’s grooming equipment and building a dedicated team of volunteers who brave the cold and snow to bring you the fantastic ski conditions you enjoy.  You’ll see him at Allison doing trail or equipment maintenance, out on the groomer or skiing fresh tracks.  Stop by and say hi.

Ron moved to the Crowsnest Pass with his wife and family in 1989 to work in our local Health Care Centre.  The community of people, along with the natural beauty, have provided tremendous experiences that continue into retirement.  In 2016, Ron joined the Nordic board and helps with organizing social events like Moonlight Skiing and Flight of the Crows Loppet. He has joined the Grooming Team and is now organizing the switch over of new maps and signs on our trails.  Ron appreciates the Crowsnest Nordic board’s effort and commitment to provide a great outdoor experience on the Chinook trails.

You will see Hal Nummi working with the maintenance team clearing brush, grooming trails, repairing equipment or whatever he is asked to do. Hal and his family have been using the trails at Allison Chinook for over 40 years and in 2009 relocated to reside in the beautiful Crowsnest Pass. Hal retired in 2017 saying it was time give back to the community and now really appreciates the camaraderie of working with other volunteers.

Other members of the team will hopefully provide a photo and a short bio soon!
