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!
Hey everyone, for some reason the lit trails are not lit right now, something happened last night, and we are getting an electrician out there to take a look. Make sure you have a headlamp if you are going skiing when it's dark.
We're sorry the website has been down, and we have some sleuthing to do to to find some explanations from the company that controls domain names. The website is back now, and you can return to finding registration forms, JackRabbits program info, grooming reports, events updates, etc. Am linking here the updates that have been sent out by email recently. Just so you know, The Jack Rabbits program is full but you can contact Julie if you would like to waitlist your child for the program. Also, the tickets for the wood carvings raffle are available. Please contact Sue if you would like to sell tickets or any executive member if you would like to buy tickets. See photos below.
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.

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.
