Our club now has a
devoted just to beginner skiers, and
we need volunteers who are willing
to help newcomers to the sport. This
is a win-win for everybody. By

our club gets more members, and the
newcomers get their wings (their
skis or boards)!

you can ride the bus from Sandy to Skibowl, Government Camp, or
