February 20th…..THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO GET INVOLVED IN THE FUTURE OF YOUR CLUB!!!

Our club is a Registered Society and as such we require people in certain positions. At present we require 2 to 3 new directors and a replacement for our retiring president.  These are part time roles given our season is from October to March.  Those who fill these positions will have support from the 6 very experienced directors that will remain on the Board.

The future sustainability and growth of our club depends on additional involvement from you, the membership….filling these positions is essential!!!!

To put your name forward and/or to find out more, please call  Darcy (250-319-8301) or Debi (250-371-1602) or email us at skiskmana@gmail.com.  Discover how little it takes to be a huge help in ensuring our cub says strong.

We would like to hear back from you prior to March 15 so that we have time to prepare for Board Elections to be held at our AGM (date to be confirmed).

THANK YOU!   From your Board of Directors

January 30th – We have had a recent incident with ‘skijoring’ (being pulled by dogs in this case)….this activity is unsafe for other skiers, hard on our groomed trails and for these reasons it is not permitted.  Just as a reminder….we also do not permit snowmobiling, hiking or mountain/fat tire biking.  It is simple really……. we are the Skmana Ski & Snowshoe Club and we only welcome skiing and snowshoeing. We have also had reports of irresponsible dog owners.  Seriously folks, no on wants to look at or ski/snowshoe through dog poop.  Please come prepared – I bring a small garden shovel in my pack and I use it to fling the poop deep into the woods 🙂  Thank you for your help – please let us know if you have comments or concerns….Debi

SAFETY ALERT…..WATCH FOR LOGGING TRUCKS TRAVELLING ON THE LOAKIN-BEAR CREEK ROAD.  THEY ARE ENTERING THE ROAD JUST SOUTH OF OUR PARKING LOT AND TRAVELLING NORTH TO THE ADAMS LAKE MILL. 

NOTICE OF CHANGE IN TRAIL USE DESIGNATION:  The ‘Lake Trails’….Buttercup and Sunflower are now designated for use by both skiers and snowshoers.  THANK  YOU for your cooperation in keeping off the groomed ski track when you are not wearing skis!!  BE KIND AND SHARE THE TRAIL.  All other trails will remain designated for either skiing or snowshoeing and can be found clearly marked on the map.  If you have questions, comments or need assistance in finding a suitable trail please contact the Club…. Skiskmana@gmail.com

 

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!

Welcome to Skmana Ski and Snowshoe Club
