After some fresh snow overnight, we have groomed the County Forest and the Barnes Hills this morning. The other trails were groomed yesterday and skiers report good conditions. More snow is predicted overnight for the area, so we hope to be able to track-set tomorrow.
The always popular Moonlight Ski has been postponed until Saturday, Feb. 4th. The weather forecast for the coming week predicts cold temperatures and more snow, so we’re hoping for good conditions. Attendance is limited – if interested in participating please contact us at email@example.com.
New Members Dale Cays, Andrew Pentney and Max Fothergill – please contact Membership Secretary John Lamberts (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible regarding your membership details.
Dogs cause damage to trails. Bringing them along shows disrespect for the other trail users and the groomers who are all volunteers and work very hard to make the skiing experience enjoyable for everyone. Trails that have been damaged by dogs have to be regroomed. Many of our trails are open due to generous landowners. They may decide to close their trails if dogs are brought onto their property.
Please respect your fellow skiers and the groomers and leave your dogs at home.

In it, you’ll find information on upcoming events (Fall clean-up, Moonlight Ski, Ladies Ski, etc.).
Hope to see many of you out on the trails this season!
It was reported that a group of people were seen snowshoeing along the side of some ski trails in the County Forest this weekend. Please respect the efforts of our groomers and do not snowshoe on or beside our ski trails. This can also be hazardous to our skiers. If you want to snowshoe, please bushwhack in other parts of the Forest or visit another Ski Club that allows this activity.
Skiers, if you have to remove your skis to go up or down hills, please walk on the side of the trail not in the middle. This is for your safety and for the safety and convenience of other skiers.
Many of our trails are on private land owners’ property. We are very grateful for their generosity. Please respect them and stay on the ski trails that run through their properties.
Please consider the hard-working volunteer groomers and other skiers when you choose to use a pulk. If the sled tracks won’t stay in the tracks set by the groomers, please keep off groomed trails. Otherwise, the tracks are messed up for everyone, and the groomers’ work is undone.
