Land, Facilities, Equipment

On our sixty acres of land we have  downhill and cross country ski trails, four ski jumps, a new biathlon facility that includes a 10 pt shooting area and five miles of mountain bike trails. We are in the midst of revamping our outreach program, and we have an active Ski Patrol that is affiliated with the National Ski Patrol System to promote safe skiing.

Over the years, we have built facilities and acquired maintenance equipment, including three heated chalets, snowmaking equipment, and machines to keep the slopes well groomed.

Grooming Machines

The Club has four snow grooming machines.
The biggest is our Pisten Bully 200. This machine is used on all of our downhill slopes and our wider XC Trails. With its power tiller and blade it can move the biggest mounds of snow and then lay down a perfectly groomed surface.
Our second largest groomer is a Pisten Bully 100. This machine is used on our XC trails and tow paths. It’s power tiller can smooth any trail that we have.
Our smallest groomers are two Ski-doo Skandic snowmobiles that groom XC trails and other areas on the property by towing an 8′ Tidd Tech Groomer.

Snowmaking

We make a deep base of snow on all of our alpine slopes and ski jumps as well as well as providing a large man-made loop for XC skiing known to many as the “Siberian Highway”.  The highway is a popular training ground for HS/MS athletes as well as Birkie skiers since we have snow early and late in the year, as well as times when mother nature is not providing any help from above.
