Support Local Ski Club: Nakkertok could win $250K for snowmaking that would support the whole region!
Nakkertok submitted an application to the Kraft Heinz Project Play contest (www.kraftheinzprojectplay.com) to seek funding to support snowmaking at Nakkertok South and have been named on of four finalists from 821 applicants from across the country. As a finalist, Nakkertok is now eligible to receive $20,000 to support the deployment of snowmaking at Nakkertok South and is also able to compete for the Grand Prize of $250,000. This makes it much more likely that we will proceed with a snow making pilot project in 2016 / 2017 and opens up the possibility of creating permanent snowmaking infrastructure at Nakkertok South.
For the region and Kanata Nordic this has the potential to support cross-country skiing and clubs throughout the region by providing a location for early season training and racing, quality snow for events hosted at Nakkertok and ability to secure experience and equipment that could potentially benefit the entire region as we seek to develop a regional snowmaking plan that would include Nakkertok South as one element. Overall this opens doors to strong future partnerships to expand and strengthen the support in Canada’s capital!
