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!
We have a work party scheduled for Saturday June 11th from 10am to 3pm. Lunch will be provided to our volunteers! We have two main projects, we are painting the inside of the Large Shop that houses the Snow-Kiti. Dean (our Chief Groomer) is overseeing this. He will need two people to assist him all day. We will have coveralls and protective gear for those helpers.
Then we are going to resupply our wood shed, it is now half full. We are renting a wood splitter and will get that done.
Weather permitting we will be painting the railings at the moose hut. And we will be looking to repair a damaged gate on our trails if possible. And as always there are all kinds of odd jobs need doing. These trails and facilities rely on volunteers to be maintained.
Even if you just come out for a few hours it is appreciated.
We also have another work party scheduled for June 25th stay tuned!
All for now, see you on the trails!

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.
And yes, chocolate is involved. But I think you have to cross the finish line to get your treat!
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.
