The 2020 games is definitely a focus for us as we try to get everything ready for those events”. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Whiskey Jack Nordic Ski Club is in the process of constructing a stadium for the club.Eliza Stanford of the ski club said, “It’s not like a stadium in the traditional sense with bleachers and everything. It’s basically, a sort of small open field area mainly for hosting races. In a cross-country ski race, you need a start/finish zone and so you need to have a certain area with so many ski lanes in it on one side and then a finish zone on the other”.Stanford says the stadium will not just be used for races, but as well for programs.- Advertisement -“Also the stadium will be used for our programming. We have a lot of beginner skiers, a lot of kids who are getting into the sport and you just need an open space to deliver those programs”.Stanford says the construction should be finished this weekend.“We went through a long process. You can’t just do anything without permission from B.C. Parks, so it’s been a really long process to get to this point where we can actually do the work”, explained Stanford.Advertisementlast_img read more
