Santa Cruise Cancelled

More in this category>> News, Past Events | 0

We regret to tell you that the Santa Cruise will not be held this December.  This race is typically held in mid-December each year (before Christmas).

We were able to find volunteers for two of the key roles, but we were not able to fill the position of chief organizer of the race.

We encourage all members to donate to the local food banks in their community in lieu of the donations/auction purchases they would have made at the Santa Cruise.

Our food banks do great work in our communities, especially so at this time of year.

Both routes will start and end at the Chalet. Watch for Alois’ candle –lit Christmas Tree! At the South Hub campfire, hosts will direct skiers either to the north on Larch Hills Road on the 1-way, 1.7K Frodo’s Bog loop or to the south along Larch Hills Road back to the Chalet.
