Introduction to Community Coaching (ICC) Workshop
Sunday, Nov. 12. Takes up to 8 hours. With Karen Johnson

Trail clearing… volunteers wanted!

Want the best ski trails grooming can provide? Help make them!

September is time for the annual fall trail-brushing blitz. Over the next month, all trails need to be cleared so that grooming can begin when the snow flies.

Two-person trail-brushing crews work half day shifts, and we can accommodate two shifts at a time. If you’ve done it before you know the drill; if not, orientation is provided.

Many hands make light work. If you have half a day to spare, please contact Chris Hotson by email at christopherhotson@yahoo.ca or by text at 867-445-3396.
