Even though we have sufficient snow the Family Moonlight Ski scheduled for December 28 in the Vischer Ferry Preserve in cancelled due to the polar conditions. Please go skiing during the day when it is warmer, but make sure if you go alone that you let someone know where you are and when to expect you back.
Remember the old Norse saying, “There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing.”
Scrimmages on man-made snow, local trails trimmed and tweaked, enthusiastic Bill Koch Youth Program, club membership and support is staged, successful preseason dinner …we are certainly ready for some natural snow and the feel of winter.
