The snow was awesome on Saturday. I'm surprised we didn't have more kids come out and join us, although I know that the flu has made the rounds in the schools, thus limiting our attendance. It was as crowded as I have seen Wilmot in years. The 80th Anniversary celebration and the the conditions meant that everyone came up to take advantage of the snow. Next weekend should still be good and the weekend after promises to be even better.
But what you all really want to know about is the trip to Granite Peak. That will happen on the weekend of March 16-18th. We are just finalizing the details and the webpage for sign up should be up shortly. The cost will be $350 for the weekend. The fee includes the lift tickets, lodging, and bus fee. Lunch and Dinner will be extra. The buses will leave from both Lincoln Park and River Forest at around 4:30 PM on Friday and return Sunday evening around 8 PM. This is a lightly supervised trip desigend for those in 5th grade and older. I'de prefer to have only level C and higher although I'll also want to see the level C skiers and boarders before they join us. I'll post an informational sheet in the next 24 hours.
