Hi everyone…. Umm… you know how I always end my newsletters by saying “think snow”? Well, you can stop doing that now. I was hoping for an early season but this is ridiculous!
Early Bird draw #1 has been completed. All club members who have sent in their memberships on or before Nov. 18 were included in the draw, 141 members in total. Winners: Carl Johansen won a free membership for next year's ski season, and Travis Carter won a handwoven wool blanket. Congratulations to both of you! The next draw is Dec. 2, and will include all registrations received by mail or online on or before Dec. 1.
Grooming update (since I can't get into the groomers' report at the moment):
From Dean today at noon: So the lot/road are cleared and BJ is trackpacking with the Bearcat and Dean is trackpacking with the Snowkitty...lots of beautiful snow out here....they are plowing the logging road also so be careful....
From Liz this evening: Update. Parking lot and drive way are plowed. Jim has dug out the lodge and environs. I got my first lesson track packing with Dean. BJ drove the snowcat. Stadium, Beaver, snowbound and Moose are packed, Dean will set tracks tomorrow morning. Strongly advise an evening ski tomorrow.
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.

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!
We are asking for all seasonal ski rentals to be returned to the ski club this Saturday April 1st from noon to 2pm at the ski trails. And we are looking for volunteers to help with waxing the rental skis and preparing the clubs rental equipment for off season storage.
The Club is also hosting a volunteer appreciation supper at 4:30 pm. Cathy is making a huge batch of chili. It’s time to thank all the volunteers that make our ski trails happen, groomers, rental shed volunteers, coaches, Snow Flake Café helpers, families that bring soup and baked goods, facilities and equipment maintenance, members assisting with club events like our ski races and open house and the near endless list of jobs that need doing all year long. Every little chore you can image that needs doing is done by our member volunteers. Hey did the Groomers do a spectacular job this year or what? Show your appreciation!
The rental shed is open now only by pre-arranged appointment. Please call someone from the executive to set up a time. (See the "contact us" page on this website.) We will try our best to accomodate those who want to rent to enjoy some spring skiing!
Last week we challenged all early bird members to give their two free passes away--all free passes that came through the envelopes in the day fee locked box (Thursday to Sunday) would be entered into a draw for a $25 TimCard. And the winner is....Michelle Riley, from Terrace! Congratulations, Michelle! And thank you to all who brought someone out skiing over the weekend!
