Farewell to the 2017/2018 Ski Season

The 2017/2018 ski season is now history.  Nature didn’t bless us with the best of years (remember those cold temperatures and icy trails?), but an outstanding effort by the groomers allowed us to get some great skiing in nevertheless. Thanks to all our other volunteers as well. We wouldn’t have been out there at all if it weren’t for you.  

See you in the fall.

Mark these dates on your calendar:

November 1:  First day on the trails (it doesn’t hurt to be optimistic).

Visit the Program page for information on any of our activities.

Club Facebook Page

The club 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.  Click on: https://www.facebook.com/groups/DRXCSkiCommunity/

Volunteers needed

The club is looking for a few volunteers to make the skiing as good as it can be.

Groomers:  We are always looking to expand our stable of trail groomers, who help groom and track set the trails using club snowmobiles and grooming equipment.  Interested people should be fit (grooming is a very physical endeavor!), familiar with both classic and skate ski styles and preferably experienced with snowmobile operation. Having some free time in the evenings would also be an asset.  The more volunteers we get, the less work it will be for each one.  If you’re interested, email Dave Steer at d.steer@sympatico.ca.

Club Championships Organizer:  The name says it all.  We need someone to organize the club championship races, which are held toward the end of the skiing season each year with typically 50 entrants. The organizer ensures that the course is prepared and finds volunteers to act as marshals, starters, timers and so on. If you’re interested, email Bob Donders at dondersr@magma.ca.
