Pumpkin Creek Mystery Tour postponed to Sunday March 10

Hi All,

As strange as this may seem seeing today is such a beautiful day, but due to tomorrow’s forecast, we are postponing the Mystery Tour to two weeks from now on Sunday March 10.

It’s in regards to skier safety with a forecast of blowing snow starting after midnight, northwest gusting from 50 km/h to 70km/h and windchill of -37, that we have made this decision.

We again apologize for this change as we look forward to a March Mystery Tour, a March marvel we shall say!

We hope you will all be able to adjust your plans to join us in two weeks!!

Thank-you for your understanding!

PCSC Executive – Danielle, Murray, Danielle
