Saturday

Skiing is excellent!  The Blue, Red and White have been groomed for skating.  Classic tracks are still in good shape from earlier grooming.  Ski school is canceled, see below for details.


January 25th - Ski School Classes Cancelled for Today

As much as we love to ski and are looking forward to our second week of classes, the freezing rain warning affecting most of our region this morning into the afternoon presents unsafe conditions both on the trails and driving to/from. Due to this extreme weather, we have cancelled ski school for this week and look forward to seeing everyone back on the trails for Saturday, February 1st.

To make up for this 2nd lost week, we have altered our planned Ski School Schedule to include classes on the Family Day Weekend (Saturday, February 15th). This class will be a fun day in which we will have a series of special activities planned and parents are encourage to participate! Stay tuned for more details.
