OVER 30 KILOMETERS OF GREAT CROSS COUNTRY SKI TRAILS
20th Annual Ski Festival is now history… a good time was had by all!
A good time was had by all.
Thanks to everyone for coming out and enjoying good food and great community and bombin trails, and another thanks for donating to the ski club! Having our trails out here in Stanley is a blessing and a luxury and it all thanks to all our super rad friends coming together donating, volunteering, coordinating, and of course grooming.
The grand total of miles for my fundraising ski was 28! Please make all donations directly to the sawtooth ski club at sawtoothskiclub.com
I will attach a link that goes directly to the donations page.
Thanks again everyone!:)
Peace and love,

THE SKI CLUB WEBSITE FOR THE YEAR 2022..
WELCOME BACK TO THE NOW NEW OLD WORLD OF PANDEMIC SKI REPORTS… LAST YEAR’S WEB SITE OFTEN SEEMED A BIT WIERD AND OF A LESSER QUALITY THAN WAS EXHIBITED IN EARLIER YEARS WHEN THE WITTY INCITEFUL BLOGGING OF WEB MASTER DAVINIUS DELIGHTED AND ENTERTAINED ALL. LAST YEAR HE BLAMED THIS DECLINE ON IMPAIRED THOUGHT PROCESSING DUE TO ADVANCING AGE. UNFORTUNATELY, THIS DOWNWARD TREND HAS CONTINUED AND WORSENED. HE IS NOW OFTEN FOUND POUNDING ON HIS KEYBOARD, NOT SURE IF HE IS ON THE SKI CLUB SITE, AMAZON.COM OR HIS WEB PHARMACY. HE NOW WORRIES MORE ABOUT FINDING HIS SHOES AND THE TV REMOTE THAN HE DOES ABOUT SKIING AND THE MEANING OF LIFE. WE ASK FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING. WE PITY THE PRETTY GIRL FROM THE VILLAGE WHO MUST LOOK AFTER HIM, PLEADING WITH HIM DAILY TO UPDATE THE WEBSITE AND CLEAN THE CAT BOX. HE CLAIMS HE IS TRYING HIS BEST BUT WE DON’T REALLY BELIEVE IT.
LUCKILY, THE BRIEF TRAIL REPORT THAT ENDED THIS SECTION LAST YEAR WORKS FINE FOR THIS YEAR SO WE ARE REPRINTING IT HERE.
THE SKI TRAIL CLEAN UP DAYS THAT TOOK PLACE OVER HALLOWEEN WEEKEND WERE THE BEST EVER. 25 OR MAYBE 35 PEOPLE SHOWED UP AT EACH SKI AREA. BECAUSE IDENTITIES WERE MASKED, WE COULD NOT GET A GOOD COUNT, TELL FRIEND FROM FOE OR EVEN GUY FROM GAL. WE GOT ALONG FAMOUSLY, ALBEIT ANONYMOUSLY, AS WE CUT TREES AND SAGEBRUSH. WE SURE GOT A LOT DONE! AT THE APRÈS CLEAN-UP EVENT AT ALTURAS LAKE, HOT DOGS WERE SERVED. THANK YOU ALL, WHOEVER YOU WERE…
