Pumpkin Creek Mystery Tour Postponed

We have decided to err on the side of caution due to icy sections on the trail system.
We feel we can host a more pleasurable Mystery Tour for our participating skiers on Sunday Feb 12, 2017 with snow forecasted for next week.
Don will not be defeated with “the ongoing ice battle” as he continues to renovate & groom the trails tomorrow for the upcoming weekend.

Sorry to all for the inconvenience, we hope you can adjust your plans to join us Sunday Feb 12, 2017. For those whose plans on the 12th cannot be changed, we shall miss you!
