April 1st was the last day the chalet was open, and grooming was done. See you next year! Any emergencies call 911.
Telemark said if you keep coming we will stay open. Saturday saw many people skiing and snowshoeing on our trails. For our club members we will be grooming, and open from 9-3PM on Sunday, April 1. There is lots of snow, sunshine and fresh air. Trail passes and rental equipment will be available all day.
That time has come again. Even with record snow levels, the last weekend for skiing and snowshoeing at the club is here. Trail passes and, ski and snowshoe rentals, are available when the office is open during the hours below.
