Candlelight Ski on Valentines Day

The Club is hosting our Valentines Day candlelight ski again this Sunday at Hidden Valley.  We will gather at dusk around an evening fire, share a little wine and good cheer, have snacks availabe in the Chalet and then ski the trails lighted with frozen candle luminaries marking the route.  Bring the whole family and enjoy.

Ski Trails at Hidden Valley to be Closed to the Public for the Race

Our ski trails will be closed to the public starting at 5:00 P.M. Thursday, January 28, 2016 through Friday at 5:00 P.M.  This will allow the pursuit race managers to complete grooming of the race courses and marking of the routes for both skate and classic races.  We ask that the public come and enjoy watching the races but stay off all the trails at Hidden Valley to ensure the racers have a successful day.  Thanks, everyone.  See you on race day.

Special Events for the 2015 - 2016 Season

The first special event of the new season arrives this Sunday, October 4 from 2 to 5 P.M.  We need all hands on deck volunteers to do work on trail maintenance on a beautiful fall day.  Please come with work clothes, gloves, hats, eye protection and nippers if you have them.  See you Sunday.

There has been a lot of other volunteer activity going on.  We have installed some additional trail lighting, put up some new fencing and are in the process of working on the flower gardens in front of the chalet.  The old place is looking pretty good.
