Over the past decades the BOC XC Ski program has been accumulating a good deal of items that are no longer used. We will be sorting stakes, tossing rotting signs, pallets, and ski racks; and scrapping old, unused ski and grooming equipment.
You will need to bring masks and gloves. We will be following COVID-19 Guidelines for outdoor volunteers. Please review the link below.
Each fall small groups of member-volunteers adopt a woods trail or two . They weed whack and clip back summer’s growth to reopen trails for skiing and snowshoeing. Contact Trail Maintenance Coordinator Joe Cook if you would like to help: jfcook3 AT gmail DOT com
WHEN: Every Saturday during the month of February as long as the trails are open. DESCRIPTION: Big Brothers and Big Sisters, accompanied by their Little Brother or Little Sister, can receive two trail passes and rental ski equipment for $30.
After the ski, stop in to the Ski Hut for a free cup of hot cocoa.
WHEN: Saturday February 29th 10:00-2:00 DESCRIPTION: On Saturday, February 29th from 10AM until 2PM, West Hill Shop will be at the BOC Ski Hut offering free demos of their fleet of skin skis. There has been a lot of buzz and opinions about the utility and performance of skin skis. The folks at West Hill believe that the skin ski is just another tool for the job. When groomed tracks are icy, very warm, hard packed, or glazed, skin skis are a great choice for the job, and in genera perform with better glide when compared to a plastic base mechanical grip zone. West Hill Shop will have three options to try, including the Fischer Superlite Twin Skin, the Salomon RC-10 e-Skin and the Madshus Race Speed Inteligrip. Please note that all the demo skis are mounted with NNN-compatible bindings. If you don’t have NNN-soled boots, don’t worry as West Hill Shop will have combi boots to use for the demo as well.
After your ski demo, stop by the Bella Notte Restaurant for a beer and lunch/dinner. Bella Notte will close for a two week break starting on March 1st.
