E-mail address dilemma

Winter is right around the corner, so buff up your skis and snowshoes and get ready to join us out on the trails for the Winter Program. Did you know that you can ski any day of the week, not just when the Interpretative Centre is open? The dates have been set for moonlight events so mark you calendars for January 3rd, February 7th and March 7th.
And please.....we all love our pets but we would appreciate if you kept them OFF the ski trails. Not only is it expensive to have the trails groomed but the deep ruts caused by dogs (primarily) result in dangerous skiing conditions.
