When: Monday, January 29, 2018 at 7 p.m.
Where: Meet at Swedetown Chalet

Meet up at 7 p.m. and plan to ski at 7:15 p.m. for about an hour (depending upon the weather).

Groups will be led by skiers familiar with the trails. We will divide groups by ski ability, so everyone feels comfortable with the time/distance to ski. Please bring a headlamp if you have one. Children are welcome with an accompanying adult.

Free hot chocolate for all in the Chalet after skiing.

Bring your skis and let’s hope for clear skies to see the moon and ski in some awesome moonlight!
