Hi everyone! It’s me again! Checking in for the last time before the long summer nap. I think it’s called “estivation”.
Things you need to know for the summer are as follows:
Hah! See?! You’ve been laughing at me all these years but when I say “think snow”, it really does work! Three weeks ago we were almost ready to call it a season. Hills were getting thin and patches were appearing. And then 16 inches of new snow dropped on our heads and we were back in business for another month at least! A cruise around the Moose Highway on Wednesday found excellent spring skiing and the Dog is reported as excellent as well. OK, the Beaver is melting but skiing is still amazing!
And we’re finishing the year with 421 members! Which is a record. Well done us!
Happy New Year, skiers! We’ve finally got the snow we’ve all been dreaming of so let’s all get out and enjoy it!
First off: We have a record 412 members! Welcome to all the newcomers! It’s wonderful to see so many new faces on the trails. Feel free to come into the lodge – make yourself some hot chocolate or tea and enjoy the fire. (Light one if it’s not already burning). The water key is kept in the drawer to the left of the stove. Lock the tap when you are leaving the lodge.
If you are a new skier: Think about coming out for a lesson on Saturday mornings, 10:30 a.m. (only on the following dates: Jan. 19; Feb. 2, 9, 16; and March 2, 9). These lessons are free for members, $10 for non-members.
Hi Everyone! So much has happened in the last month that it’s hard to know where to start! There’s snow on the mountains but sadly, not on the trails so everyone keep thinking snow!
The parking lot expansion is finished and ready for use! Thanks to Anthony Vandermuellen for his always expert work.
Hello skiers! Happy New Year! And hasn’t it been a glorious autumn? Hope everyone has been getting out and enjoying the fall sunshine.
The Club season got off to a terrific start with our work party on Saturday, Oct. 6. Twenty-five working adults and teens plus numerous small children (picture the 2 year old, clutching his “log” staggering through the trees – too cute!) accomplished a prodigious amount of work!
Hi everyone! The last Ski Club news letter will be brief but well worth reading.
First and most important: The trails will be closed to public access this summer. This is because the commercial thinning begun last year down by the Dog Trail will continue north through the inside trails. Trucks will be exiting via the parking lot and past the garages. The Dog Trail is open but we advise parking on the Dog Trail itself, not on the Wedeen Forestry Road or in the parking lots.
Hello everyone! With the snow finally disappearing in town, and slowly thinning down at the trails, we’re starting to wrap up the season. 6 months of good skiing! Who’da thunk it?!
At the risk of repeating myself, what a season we are having! We’ve got better than a meter and a half base, and 99 new members! It just keeps getting better! OK, that’s 3 exclamation marks in a row, calm down. Thorne!
First the thankyou’s – to Dean Bergstrom and Deo Araujo for putting in 200 hours of grooming in the past month – Thank you so much! And to Anthony VanderMeulen for his countless hours and grooming expertise this whole season. There is no ski season without expert grooming.
Holy smoke! What a season! We’ve been going full tilt since mid-November and no sign of let up.
Many thanks to Dean Bergstrom and Anthony vander Meulen for the terrific grooming that has kept us skiers so happy! And another thank you to Deo Araujo who has volunteered to learn and is making much faster progress than yours truly.
We started adult and family lessons in late December and now Jack Rabbits has begun and every Saturday morning sees an incredibly busy lodge and stadium full of kids, and adults, having a blast!
