Celebrating a ‘chili’ Sunday at Kane Valley
Temperatures hovering around -15 C did little to quell the enthusiasm of close to 40 hardy participants at this year’s Chili Sunday event at the Kane Valley ski trails, located 22 km southeast of Merritt.
Hosted by the Nicola Nordic Ski Club, the annual mid-winter celebration featured a communal pot of chili, along with lots of hot chocolate and delicious desserts — all served around a cozy open fire at the NNSC shelter adjacent to parking lot #3 on the Kane Valley Road.
When participants of all ages weren’t chowing down or just socializing, they could be found skiing or snowshoeing many of the more than 50 km of trails maintained and groomed by members of the local nordic ski club.
