$250,000 Grant Brings Grooming Upgrade

The new PistenBully 100 snow groomer will be economical and efficient with modern engine technology and environmentally friendly exhaust.

2022 got off to a great start for the 100 Mile Nordics! We are thrilled to announce we have been awarded a $250,000 grant for new snow grooming equipment, through a Capital Project Grant from the Province of British Columbia’s Community Gaming Grants Program. The grant money will be put toward the purchase of a PistenBullly 100 to increase our grooming capacity and service a larger area of the trail network more efficiently. Other funders for the new machine included the Cariboo Regional District and District of 100 Mile House with a $42,000 funding contribution, and $75,000 raised by the 100 Mile Nordics Ski Society, thanks to accumulated savings and the generous donors who supported our funding drive for this initiative.
