Greetings! Well the official season has come to an end for grooming operations. Our contract to for the use of the state land is up but we will be back next year. In the meantime there is still good skiing to be had. Enjoy the trails and think about dusting off your Bear spray to bring along. It has been my pleasure to work the lanes this season as well as ski. Yet one of the most rewarding aspects of my job has been to meet so many wonderful people out there skiing. So thank you! Thank you for spending some of your time out enjoying the trails and especially thank you for your financial support of our club. We couldn’t do it without each and every one of you! See you when the snow flys next winter! Vin

Grooming update: trails are groomed. Classic track is set. Upper mountain trails Birch Loops are a little messy due to the large amount of snow. That’s a nice problem to have. Enjoy! Vin
