Call in your reservation as soon as possible so they know how many to expect.

We have three Groomers available to us contact John Johnston if you want to use one.

Steve Enochs our representative to the Snow TRACs Board, reported on the goings on with the program. After much mashing of teeth most of those present, where in agreement that the program is fatally flawed! What are we going to do about it?

NAOI will be doing an avalanche class at Compeaus on Oct 26th 2-4 pm.

The Swap meet was pretty slim Stoney I think was the only one that sold anything. But the conversation and the food provided by Polaris Outpost was pretty good! You should have came by and said HI!
