Please note the fast approaching payment cut off date of Thu, Jan 12 2017 6:00:00 PM

Come spend a weekend of great skiing, great food and great conversation. In late February, snow conditions are often good on Kolapore’s beautiful ungroomed trails.

We will leave the city sometime on Friday afternoon or evening, depending on when participants can get out of the city, and return Sunday evening.

Please note: we will have lights out, quiet time from 12am. The reason is that the cabin is open concept and noise travels.

If trip participants would like, I will be happy to give an informal, basic ski lesson to beginners.

UTOC cabin details:

· The Cabin is rustic and has an outhouse. You need to bring a flashlight.
· Sleeping arrangements: There are some foam rubber mattresses You need to bring sleeping bag or warm blankets, sheets, and pillows.
· Food: Meals will be communal. If there is demand, we will provide a veggie option. There is a full kitchen with a gas oven and stove. Volunteer(s) each buy the food for a meal. They are responsible to lead (with lots of help) cooking or preparing the meal at the Cabin. We share food costs equally.
· Water: We bring drinking water with us. There is a spring to get water to do dishes with.
· Remember the Cabin lies in the Snow Belt! And so little or no snow in Toronto does not mean poor snow conditions at the Cabin. However, if there is not enough snow on the Kolapore trails, those right at the cabin, two commercial x-country ski resorts are within 30 minutes car ride. They groom their trails and therefore have an even better chance of good snow conditions.
