      Did you know that the Yellowknife Ski Club was profiled on CBC Sports week-end? As part of RBC Sports Day in Canada preparations, the CBC took a look at Yellowknife’s sporting roots.

      Scott Russell said on air that they were one of four finalists to win live coverage on Nov 30th!

      Yellowknife Ski Club is the largest volunteer run sports facility in Northern Canada, and has intricate ties to the community as a whole even outside the realm of sport.
