Hello Skiers and Parents,
Our East Nordic Ski team focus this season will be to build a “Culture of Health”. It is very important to follow these protocols so we can keep everyone healthy. We want to be able to complete our ski season.
The Snowflake Chalet is closed this season due to COVID-19. Because of this, we will have a definite practice end time of 4:30. (There will be porta potties at Snowflake.)
