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!
Hi everyone! Well here it is the beginning of March and the snow is pretty much gone in town BUT, the trails are actually holding up surprisingly well. A tribute to our tireless groomers and a solidly frozen base! The stadium is going fast but the trails will be in good shape for 2 or 3 weeks. So don’t pack up your skis yet! There’s still time to get in a few more circuits of our lovely trails.
Happy Winter everyone! Just read over last month’s newsletter and Holy Smoke! Have we had a lot of things happening!!!
The Snow-Kiti arrived, the snow arrived, the skiers arrived and the lodge and the rental shed went wild! Our membership was up to 328 as of Tuesday and sale of Day Pass packages is booming.
Hello Everyone! It’s ski season!!
As I’m working on this newsletter it’s snowing hard in Kitimat and at the trails. Dean, Cliff and Jim have been working hard with the Yamaha, our (very old) smaller snow mobile, to pack, smooth and lay a classic track. This has been extremely time consuming and now it will all be covered in deep, white, snow. We hope. They will be out again asap but the Yamaha may not be able to handle snow that’s very deep. So it’s a very good thing that…...............Drum roll...........…
Hello Everyone! It’s starting to look and feel like winter out there! Dean, Anthony, and Cliff have been out with our one cranky snowmobile and Anthony’s 4 track, packing the Moose Highway. Cliff dug out our very old grading bar to pull behind the Yamaha and the Moose is skiable if you don’t mind jumping rocks and sticks! So get those boards waxed. The season is about to begin!
