We are still in the process of finishing the work on the new warming house that we opened last winter. In the last two weeks, we ordered rustic tables and benches. The new furniture is being built by the Northwestern High School students as part of their ‘Tiger Industries’ program. Poplar Building Center helped with provision of supplies for the new furniture. We expect to see that in place by the end of December.
We have also ordered ‘carpet tiles’ for the floor. We hope to have a warmer environment with the cement covered over and we also expect to quiet the ‘echo’ effect that now rings through the nearly empty structure. With furniture and carpet, hopefully in place by the end of the year, we will be closer to full-filling our plan to complete the new trail base.
The Brule Valley Ski club is paying for these projects with the generous support offered by our club membership. Please come and join us.
On Saturday October 20, 2017 we will start our annual work day on the ski trail at After Hours trails at noon. The work on the trails will continue for about four hours and then we will have our annual meeting at 5 PM. Snacks will be served and bring something to share if you like. We will choose our board members at the annual meeting and discuss an agenda which will include items to finish the new warming house and improvements to the trail system for skiing and mountain biking.
On February 11, 2017 between 5 and 9 PM we will be holding our annual candlelight ski, but at the same time we will be opening our new warming house for the first time for skiers. So, there is plenty of reason to come out and enjoy the bon fire, candlelit trails, a BBQ and the new warming house. The event is free and open to the public with about 5 K of ski trail and a portion of the snow shoe trail lit by candles.
At this event, we will also dedicate our classic ski trail to one or our founding members, Sally Runge. The dedication for her contributions and those of her family will be at 7PM at the new warming house. Conditions for skiing should be excellent for both skate and classic skiing.
On October 3, 2015 at noon, the ski club will gather to clear the ski trail of fallen trees, brush and rocks that have pushed up since last season. At 4 PM, we will meet at the Ski Hut to choose officers and discuss projects for the coming season. Anyone interested in improving the ski trail and helping to pick out this years projects should be there this coming Saturday. We typically provide refreshments and have a good time renewing the trails and starting off the ski season.
HI everyone; Its time to get ready. We are planning to have our ski club work day on the After Hours trail on Saturday, October 3, 2015 beginning at noon. We will follow the activities on the trail with our annual meeting at 4 PM.
At the annual meeting we decide on trail projects, elect officers and set our event schedule. We need your advice and participation. Please join us for the afternoon.
Along with the sun today and way more than a foot of snow, we have a groomed ski trail. So, spread the news and come on out to enjoy some great skiing.
It snowed for four days straight, so the grooming crew deserves lots of credit getting things in shape. Expect it to be a little soft at first with all of the powder, but this is one of our earlier starts to what could be a great season.
Our newsletter is about ready for the printer, so you will also see that in a few days. See you out on the trail.
Hi Everyone: Its time for us to prepare our ski trail for our winter passion. On October 11 at 10:30 AM we will all gather to work on the trail. We move fallen trees, cut brush along the edges and look for and pick stones off of the trails that have pushed up or fallen on the trail during the summer season.
We need your help not only on the trail, but we also need a new club secretary as I need help with correspondence. We also need input from everyone with regard to club programs. Come to the annual meeting at 2:30 PM. We will finish by 4:30 PM.
See you there and bring some tools for clearing the trail.
