Welcome to the 2021/2022 ski season. The trails are now open, and grooming has been done on most of the trails.
Covid Restrictions (2022 January 5). With the current Covid lockdown the following changes have been made to our facilities and programs:
- Chalet on Balmer Bay Road – closed.
- Rental program – suspended.
- Bass Lake Cabin – limited to a maximum of 5 people indoors.
- Moonlight ski on January 15 – cancelled.
- New Members Open House – postponed until Sunday January 30.
Once the lockdown period is over, we hope to open our facilities and resume our programs to the extent possible. Check the DRXC website for updates.
As usual, the trail clearing and trail improvement groups have done a great job getting things ready for the new season.
Silver Spoon Ski (and Snowshoe) Fest – January 29 to February 6 (nine days)
For 2022, the 50th Silver Spoon Ski (and Snowshoe) Fest will be a multi-day loppet rather than a race (see the Programs page for details).
A collection of equipment (poles, boots, skis, waxes) is available for seasonal rental (see the Programs page for details).
The grooming and trail maintenance volunteers work hard at keeping the ski tracks in good shape and cleared of fallen trees and branches. Check the groomers’ blog for the latest on trail conditions.
Registration for general members is expected to open on November 22. New this year is that the Jackrabbit registration is included in the club membership form. Visit the Registration page for more information.
Club Facebook Page
The Deep River ski community has a Facebook page that can be used to post pictures, spread the news about trail conditions, meet up with others for a group ski, and so on.
Four Seasons Conservancy
Use of the Silver Spoon trails and the DRXC Chalet on Balmer Bay Road are through cooperation with the Four Seasons Conservancy and other private landowners. For year-round trail access rights you must sign-up as a lifetime Conservancy member (see sidebar). The DRXC encourages all skiers to do this and to enjoy the other trails, other activities and other seasons in this pristine natural setting. Please tread lightly!
