Warm temperatures are putting a halt on some training for Fort Sask athletes.
The Fort Saskatchewan-based Nordic Ski Club is not having an ideal start to their season, due to poor weather and low numbers.
"The club is struggling a bit this year, our membership and participation is down," said Craig Lukie, acting president of the Nordic Ski Club. "We've had several years in a row now of conditions similar to this with not a lot of snow, so we're having to rethink how we do things."
Currently, the club is still holding training sessions for both kids and adults and they are still hoping more people join before they hit the trails.
"We're at around 50 club members which is down a fair bit, in normal years we usually run a total of 150 to 200 members," added Lukie.
January is the expected start date now for the winter ski season.
