Please bring your own cup/mug for a hot drink afterwards.  If for some reason weather forces us to cancel, a notice will be posted on the club’s website and/or Facebook page.  If conditions remain good, we will ski for the next four Thursdays including March 1. We are looking for two more volunteers to ski with one of the groups for the next three or four Thursday afternoons.
