#2 After

#3 L to R  Dave Lepsoe (Skmana), Dan Nelson & Doug Nelson (Econospan)

#4 Kevin Adam (Scotch Creek Home Hardware)

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.

 

 

 

 

Our ski and snowshoe club offers 18 kms of track set classic ski trials and a generous offering of designated snow shoe trails. All are well marked and cover a very wide range of natural forest, lakes and streams.  Families, social groups and individual skiers and snowshoers will all find the trails very user friendly. You won’t be disappointed!
