Dear Ski Friends,

Each morning as I get out of the house before dawn, I can truly sense the change of seasons with the arctic air mass shifting down over New England.  I have also seen Orion in the early morning sky.  Both are sure signs of the coming winter. 

I skied Monday - someone had to do it, it might as well have been me. I grabbed some Fischer skis out of the rental area and went up to the Woodchuck Fields.  What fun to be on snow again!

                 Monday Oct 31

We could use your help on the trails on Saturday.  If you plan to join us for the Trail Volunteer Day, please let me know by email. We will gather at the Touring Center at 8:30 a.m. and head out to the trail projects for the morning.

Next Monday we move back into our normal winter mode.  We will start accepting gear for the 9th Annual Nordic Ski Swap and Sale which will happen on that Saturday Nov 12th from 9am - 2 pm.  Get in line early for the best selection of gear.  The Gorham Bike and Ski Swix/Fischer Concept Shop will be having their season's grand opening also.  They tell me that they will be some good bargains as well.  Look for our new billboard on the way.

Denise reports brisk season pass sales.  Don't miss out, call her at 800-937-6697 or go online to order yours today!

Drive safely on your way,

Thom
