Blast from the past

Do you  ever wonder what  happened to past members?

Well Scott Richards, an ex member and instructor, is carving it up at Big White  Resort, BC.

He has been a snowboarding instructor there for the past 18 years and continues to bring fun to people’s lives.

Happy New Year

2014 is just around the corner and then the snow fun begins!

Mark has organized 3 wonderful weekend trips, the first of which leaves on January 17th for Lake Placid.

On February 6th we head east for  skiing at  Mont Ste Anne and La Massif with a night of fun in Quebec City.

Lastly, an old favourite, the Owl’s Head trip leaves on February 28th.

Just when you fear the snow season is coming to an end, Anne steps in to save the day with a week long trip to glorious Aspen which departs Toronto on March 30th.

With so many exciting adventures it’s snow wonder we can’t wait to start the New Year.

Be sure to join us at the Fox & Fiddle on January 9th where friends old and new meet to discuss the exciting adventures ahead.

Wishing you a very happy 2014! 


First Snow


Well Ontario has seen its first snow, maybe not here in the GTA, but further north, so it’s time to get serious about your plans for the coming ski season.

Our next meeting is Thursday November 7th at the Fox and Fiddle on Yonge Street at 8:00 pm but come earlier to socialize.

It is opening night for the Whiteface Mountain trip, January 17– 19.  Whiteface Mt. was home to the 1980 and 1932 Winter Olympics.  Non-skiers will have plenty to see and do in and around the village as Lake Placid is consistently voted #1 in Off-Hill activities!  Early bird pricing is $395.
And coming down the pipe (or half-pipe )…
Our trip to Mont Ste-Anne & Le Massif (February 6–9) opening night is December 5th and Owl’s Head in the Eastern Townships (Feb 28 – March 2) opens January 9th.  But remember you can sign up for any trip earlier than opening night to confirm you spot with a $100 down payment and get the early bird pricing.
