Mr. Vick's class from Cassie Hall had a great day out at the trails on Tuesday! Thanks go to Geoff and Travis for helping out! (One other photo here.)
....or is it the Chocolate Marathon?
Everyone welcome, every age, every ski ability: classic or skate, fast or slow. This is the best race in the northwest, come and experience it for yourself! Everyone who finishes their distances (choices are 1 km, 5 km, 10 km, 15 km, or 30 km) gets a chocolate bar at the end. And the REALLY BIG chocolate bars go to the winners (male and female) for each of the distances. Check out the race notice here. And we'll see you there!
Contact Travis for further details or if you can volunteer your time during the race. And Ria (email here) is the race secretary, for race registration. (She needs the following information in the email: name, age, gender and race distance.) Check the race notice for race times, payment and bib pickup.
Geoff is offering skate ski lessons this Monday, Feb. 23, starting at 7:00 p.m.
Cheryl and Terry will be doing a waxing clinic on Monday, March 2, 7:00 p.m. for anyone interested in learning wax techniques for either skate or classic skis. Even waxless skis benefit from a bit of glide wax on the tips and tails!!!
Ladies: Are you Interested in a fun all-day cross-country ski adventure? Are you ready to learn some new skills and improve ski technique? Or maybe you've never skied before and would like to learn the basics? Maybe it's been decades since you've strapped on cross country gear and would like some guidance to get back into the sport? Are you afraid of hills and want to overcome that fear? Perhaps you'd like to try skate skiing? This one-day event is a great way to accomplish any of the above.
Pass it on! Bring your friends! It looks like it's going to be a sunny day.
Saturday, February 28: Chocolate Marathon -- registration available soon -- contact Travis
Rabbits continue on Saturdays, 10-noon

I have very good news on the status of our Cross Country Ski Trails at Onion Lake. We expect to be in good shape by tomorrow (Monday-Family Day) late morning, early afternoon. We expect power to be restored, access cleared to the main parking lot and the parking lot plowed. We have ongoing grooming and should have some trails ready to ski like the Doggie Trail, Stadium, Lit Track and maybe more. Plus we had a group of volunteers dig out the main Lodge and washrooms.
Hi, everyone. So we're now all dug out at home, the snow is in nice heaps and we've freed up our vehicles.... The ski club is not at this stage yet! The front parking lot has been sort of cleaned out, but has deep pockets of snow. The road to the main parking lot and the big parking lot have not been cleared, and you might be wading in snow up to your neck. And, there is no power out there. Please hang tight; we're all keen to be out skiing and trying out this huge dump that will be good for something more pleasant than shovelling, but the guys are dealing with the snow and the PB today, and with limited parking in the front lot, extra congestion won't help their efforts. The lodge and outbuildings will need to be dug out, and we'll call for a volunteer crew to do that once the parking lot is accessible. I'm sure Dan or Dean would love to hear from you if you can help with moving snow!
There will be no Rabbits tomorrow, Saturday, Feb. 7. The highway is a mess, the snow continues to fall; the plow guy for the ski trails has had a major breakdown and the club is trying to find someone to plow the road and parking lot.
