Season-end message from Christa

Hello Herringbelles and beaux !

snowflakeAnother great ski season has come to a close for us. With winter getting more unpredictable, we could almost start in February and continue into March! However, we’ll stick with the tried and true and hope for lots of snow in 2017.

Fortunately, we only had to cancel once on February 3 when rain and record warm temperatures made the trip to Horseshoe impossible.  Our other Wednesdays at Highlands Nordic, Horseshoe, Hardwood and Scenic Caves were all most enjoyable, with a particularly yummy party in the log cabin. There we also said our thank-yous to Sylvia and Russ who will be ably replaced by treasurer Hedi and membership secretary Mary. We are also grateful to our phoners Helga, Pam and Catherine who have agreed to stay on for another season.

Winter 2017 seems a long way off, but keep it in mind by reminding some of your friends to join us next year for great exercise on the trails. Be sure to check the website organized by Gary for all forthcoming details.  I remain co-ordinator for now and wish you a most wonderful summer,



Trip 6 – Horseshoe

HorseshoeHappy Valentine’s Day, Herringbelles and beaux !  After the deep freeze, the long-range forecast for Wednesday sounds excellent for the trip to Horseshoe: $15 for skiing and $10 for snowshoeing. Wishing you a fabulous day on the trails, Christa

Trip 5 – Scenic Caves & party

ScenicCavesGood morning, Herringbelles and -beaux   This Wednesday (February 10) the party is on at Scenic Caves. And so are skiing and snowshoeing, both $12 this week.

Reminders for the party: no lunches required, just a sweet or savoury finger food to share with everyone. Plates and napkins will be provided, as well as red and white wine with glasses.

Looking forward to a great time on the trails and in the log cabin, Christa.

No trip this Wednesday

Good morning Herringbelles and -beaux !  The snow gods have let us down and weather conditions have made it necessary to cancel the trip to Horseshoe tomorrow. This means we will add Wednesday, Feb. 17 to the schedule.

Plans for next week’s outing and  party remain the same – Scenic Caves including the party in the log cabin with details to follow. Please plan on bringing a sweet or savoury dish that is both easy to transport and easy to eat… cutlery, but we’ll have plates, napkins and wine.  See you then, Christa
