Due to late logging activities, the Dog Trail is closed until further notice. The logging/road construction will be completed by the end of the month.
Hello everyone – looks like it’s snow season! If only it would migrate a little further west! We have a ton of good news this month so let’s get started.
Our AGM on Oct. 28 was a success and many delicious deserts were consumed. The new executive is the same as the old one except for the Prez who is now me – Liz Thorne, again. I’m not my first choice but Dan has stepped down as prez and the rest of the crew are really happy where they are sooo…. Here I am.
The official exec. list is:
Hi Everyone! Just a quick update to remind you that the Annual General Meeting will be held on Saturday, October 28th at 7 pm in the lodge at Onion Lake. Kids are welcome and 2 free day passes will be given to all adults who attend. Luscious deserts will be served....and if you have a chance to bring some goodies to add to the array, please do!
Hello everyone and happy New Year! September always feels like the new part of the year to me. It’s been a while since the last newsletter and even though it’s been the off season, quite a few things have been happening so let’s get started.
Hello everybody, and a Happy Spring to all! What a jumble of a year it has been! First we worried that winter wasn’t coming. Then that it was going too fast and then was it ever going to go!? However, we skied until mid-April this year with only one missed week in February when we thought we were doomed!
Well, here it is, March, and I expected to be announcing that the gates were closed. Instead, looking out my window it seems more like January with more snow accumulating each time I look! I’m not complaining, mind you, just a little befuddled!
Happy New Year everyone! My wish for you is that everyone had a good Christmas and that 2017 provides at least a few of the things you’re hoping it does! One of my hopes certainly came true. We’ve had the best ski conditions since Christmas that I can remember! Thanks to the groomers for giving us awesome trails to ski on!
It’s snowing at the trails everybody! Ski season has arrived! Yes indeed, the executive arrived at the lodge for our monthly meeting on Tuesday and found several inches on the ground and more falling periodically. We need 2 ft. on the ground before we can groom but meanwhile we can ski with rock skis and no grooming if we like. The gate will remain closed until we do start grooming so use the front parking lot. At that time we will also begin checking for passes, (season and day use) so make sure you’re wearing it. The paid seasons passes will be in the mail next week.
Hi everyone! The snow is finally on the mountains and that means that ski season is coming! (So I went and bought new skis! Yay!)
I’m not the only happy skier around; we’ve got over 60 members already signed up for this season, who therefore have their name in the Nov. 11th draw for a free membership for the 2017-2018 ski season. There will be another draw on Dec. 1st and CCBC (Cross Country BC) will then be counting memberships and awarding prizes to the club with highest percentage of last year's membership totals, so get your forms in (mail) or go online to sign up! Remember, the Early Bird gets the prize!
Hello Everyone! Just a few items as we wrap up the season.
We had a successful gathering of the skis work party. Not only did most of the skis come back but thanks to Yohannes and Gabriel Vandenberg and Amy Klepetar, they were all waxed before they got put away! Hurray!
