Governments invest in Miramichi Cross Country Ski Club project

An expansion of the Miramichi Cross Country Ski Club has garnered a combined investment of $657,000 from the provincial and federal governments.

The project includes a new building for the club, incorporating a biathlon range into the trails, and improving existing trails so they're easier to groom.

The provincial government is investing $297,000 in the project while the federal government is contributing $360,000.

Club president Norm Brown says, "This project, when complete, will turn this facility into a centre of excellence for outdoor recreation within Northumberland County and beyond."

Brown also thanked the City of Miramichi for its ongoing support.
