Saturday

The blue and green trails have been re-groomed for skate (or classic outside tracks).  Tracks from previous grooming are still in good shape but icy on the green trail.  The sprint loop has been freshly groomed with new tracks for classic.  Grooming is limited because icy conditions take extra time to prepare, but the skiing is still quite good.  Be careful in the parking lot and approaching the cabin, those areas are quite slippery.

Green in great condition!

Lots of work to upgrade the green.  Skating & classic should be excellent.  All other trails are completely iced up, so should be avoided.

AGM coming up 26th of April


PAXC Annual General Meeting

Place: CSC Jeanne-Lajoie secondaire, 1257 Pembroke St W, Pembroke; room TBA
time: April 26th, 7:00 pm

Each end of season, the AGM, open to all members, summarizes the season and future plans, and allows to vote for administrators' positions, which are renewable every year. The positions are: president, secretary, registrar, ski school coordinator, finance, and 2 members at large.

You might have noticed there is no survey this year. The stats we received in the last few years showed the same tendencies, so we can save time by not having to repeat the process this year. The club has a lot of need for volunteer work, especially as ski school instructor (you don't need to be an expert, just one simple course), and trails maintenance in the fall. Do not hesitate a second to get involved! Without volunteers, there is no ski possible.

If you like some improvements to the club, you can share some suggestions, or get involved as volunteer or administrator.

Hoping to see you there. Until then, have a good ski for whatever is left of the season!

Christian Renault

PAXC president
