Winter 2018 is Coming

Fall is here and we are preparing for another great season ahead and looking forward to connecting with all of you.

If you put your gear away wet it's time to dig it out and take care of it for the season ahead. Wax your skis, make sure you removed the batteries from your beacon and make sure a mouse didn't make a nest in your boots over the summer.  Yikes!

Look for upcoming events and education to sharpen your skills and make this season a great one.
