Notice Board

The 2021/22 Season is finished. We had a very good year. The AGM will be help Monday May 9, 7:00 p.m. at the Balmer Bay Chalet.

Welcome to the 2021/2022 ski season. Check out the Trail Conditions page for the most recent trails conditions.

Covid Restrictions.

Starting Tuesday March 1st:

  • The Balmer Bay Road Chalet will be open for general use. The chalet will be opened mid-morning by a volunteer and closed around dusk. The volunteer will start a fire in the woodstove to warm up the chalet; throughout the day, you can use the firewood available to keep the fire going. You must wear a mask and practise appropriate physical distancing when inside the chalet. Details of the chalet procedure are provided on the Facilities page.
  • The Bass Lake Cabin will be available without Covid specific capacity limits.

Check the DRXC website for updates, as more changes will be made, as permitted.

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).

Equipment Rental
A collection of equipment (poles, boots, skis, waxes) is available for seasonal rental (see the Programs page for details).

Grooming Information
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
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!
