From Danielle Dumesnil on December 8:
Happy 2018-2019 season!
Pumpkin Creek not quite ready to ski yet. Volunteers have packed the whole trail system and one more snowfall should do it! Thanks to all who have come out and helped this fall to work on upgrading creek crossings to make them safer and install our new aluminum mobile crossing at the…[Read more]
7 Charleswood Ski Club members attended the Pumpkin Creek Mystery Tour on Sunday Feb 25.

The whole trail system was groomed today!
Thanks to all who built the Blue Moon Shorty Creek Crossing today because I didn’t get there so even more grateful to all who did !
Have a great weekend everyone!
From Danielle Dumesnil:
Due to a lack of sufficient snow on the trails to safely host the Mystery Tour on Sunday Feb 4th, 2018, the event will be postponed till we get a good snowfall.
We shall keep you posted on a new date as we encourage mother nature to join the snow dance movement!

Roger’s Pass, Stroll, Easy Street & Blue Moon to Leary’s were renovated and groomed in the last two days. Hopefully the snow fairies will sprinkle that dusting of snow which is in the forecast. Caution on the valley road, it has some very icy sections. Parking lot is good. Mystery Tour postponed to Sunday Feb 12th, 2017.
From Danielle Dumesnil:
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…[Read more]
