Hi, everyone: Very sad conditions at the trails. All most tragic. The stadium is completely ice, literally you could use metal bladed skates in the stadium. There is snow on the trails but it is cement. You could not put a mark in it with a ski if you tried. So...there will be no formal lessons for rabbits tomorrow. No safe skiing could occur.
Hi Everyone! Just a quick update so everyone is in the loop! The skiing is great! And it’s all thanks to groomers Jim, Erich and Anthony! Jim and Erich took the Ginzu around the stadium trails, Jack Rabbit and the Snowbound circuit many, many times and they’re all now in excellent shape. The Moose is likewise in good shape as far as the Kitlope crossing.
The recent rain has forced us into the difficult position of postponing the women's ski fest, scheduled for tomorrow. We will find an alternate weekend to hold the ski fest, once conditions improve. Meanwhile, am attaching some photos from this morning's Rabbits program. These kids are tough little skiers! Cathy V. Click the "read more" to see the photos!

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!
If you are female, and if you would like to improve your skiing skills (or learn new skills and techniques), please join us on January 29th for our one-day ski clinic! For women of all ages and all skiing abilities, the ski fest will boost your skiing skills and enthusiasm for this great winter sport. We meet in the lodge at 9:00 for coffee and warm up exercises, and will be on the snow by 9:30. Questions: call Cathy at 635-7397. Registration form is here. And is you want to put a poster up in your workplace or gym, you can download it here.
Hey, JackRabbits parents:
Those of you who've registered your kids in the JackRabbits program for 2017 and have your gear for the season, you can disregard this notice.
The rest of you--especially those who need to rent gear, take notice that we will be holding a mini-rental day on Dec. 29th 1-4 for JackRabbits families. $75 for a set (skis, boots, poles) for the season. We CAN NOT get all of you set up on the morning of the first lesson, so please try to attend this rental opportunity!
There are already more than 50 registrants for JackRabbits; if you haven't registered yet, please register ASAP, as the coaches will have a cut-off number which we are quickly approaching.
