SNOW REPORT

December 4th, 2022

Sunflower remains closed until further snowfall.  Kinnickinnick is packed and track set, BUT until the Ginzu can get up there the trail is somewhat uneven….ski with caution.  All other ski and snowshoe trails are in excellent early season condition.  Kiosk is open and maps are available.  The parking lot is freshly plowed.

NEW DIRECTORS NEEDED!!

The Skmana Ski & Snowshoe Board of Directors are looking to fill 2 or 3 Director positions.  Filling a Director position allows you to have a say in what does or does not happen with our Club going forward.  It allows you to share ideas and be involved in activities within our Club other than the Ski or Snowshoe outings.  It will require attending no more than 2 meetings a year and helping with specific tasks such as fund raising, membership drives, trail upgrades, increasing community involvement and awareness of what our Club offers. PLEASE CONTACT BILL McPHERSON AT 604-626-3443 for more information.

A HUGE Thank You to the generous donors who made our much needed Warming Hut upgrade possible.  The Hut now has a new roof, siding and an outdoor fire pit.  The metal cladding was donated by Econospan Structures Corp., the lumber was donated by Scotch Creek Home Hardware and the fire pit materials were purchased through a donation from TNRD Area Director Mel Rothenburger.  Special mention to Woody’s Wholesale Lumber for custom building the incredible benches.

Upcoming Programs & Events

We have coaches for one Jackrabbits group this year! If you are interested in coaching Bunnyrabbits (4 & 5 years old), contact Michelle at lmtsutsumi@gmail.com by October 31, 2022.

The program consists of six to eight weekly lessons (snow and weather permitting) on Saturdays from 2 – 3 PM, Programs will run January 14 to March 11. With one adult membership and one child membership (or more, depending on how many kids are signing up for Jackrabbits), the cost of the program is $25 per child. Included in the program fee is access to equipment (sizes permitting) that is loaned for the duration of the season, at no cost, and returned when the trails close. The objective is to introduce cross country skiing and the healthy lifestyle associated with it through organized activity and active play. In addition, the program is designed to:

  • Help children develop a positive self-image
  • Be fun
  • Provide children an opportunity to make ski-friends
  • Develop fundamental movement skills
  • Help children develop an awareness and appreciation of our natural environment

Registration is open! Sign up when you get your memberships.

VOLUNTEERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME – PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU CAN SPARE EVEN A LITTLE BIT OF YOUR TIME TO GET INVOLVED.  We are 100% volunteer dependent!!!
