31 Jan 2018

Join fellow skiers for a moonlight ski. Jan 31 is the snow moon (normally in Feb but this year on Jan 31) so what better time to enjoy a nightime ski at Kawartha Nordic. Meet at 7pm at the Woodfine Chalet. The group will plan the route.

Snow in the forecast today so skiing should be improved, but the clouds and snow may hide the moon, so bring your headlamp.
