Administrative history

The Foothills Nordic Ski Club was organized in Calgary, Alberta in 1962 and incorporated in 1964, largely to sponsor races. Later the objects were expanded to include the promotion of Nordic skiing (cross-country skiing) through ski touring, instruction and social events. The club grew to be the largest Nordic skiing club in the city with about 250 members in the late 1980s. Although the club is primarily recreational, competitive events were again growing rapidly in popularity by the late 1980s. The club joined the Cross-Country Ski Committee in 1973 which resulted in the improvement of trails in the city. In 1976 it affiliated with the Calgary Regional Trails Council. The club hosted a variety of World Cup events which took place just before the 1988 Olympics as well as taking an active part in the latter event. The club also operates the Jackrabbit ski program for children. It is a member of the Calgary Area Outdoor Council.
