The Five Winds Backcountry Ski Club is a four-season outdoor club. During the winter months, we enjoy cross country skiing on marked, ungroomed wilderness trails, off-trail snowshoeing and winter camping. Each Sunday, from January to the end of March, a luxury coach will take us to different areas of our trail system. During the spring, summer and fall, we enjoy activities such as hiking, backpacking, trail clearing, and camping. Read more...
Upcoming Events show the next five events currently listed on the website. You can see a list of calendar events with new events posted on an ongoing basis here. It does not necessarily include events from the Members Only (paid membership) Google Group.
Bus Updates - Our bus captains will give you the latest info on the bus, where we are going, if there is space still available for walk-ons, and/or snow/weather conditions.
Snow Updates - We have many members who have homes or cottages near our trail system, so we will receive frequent Snow Updates on how much snow we have in the general vicinity of our trails, state of ice conditions.
Trail Updates: This is an area for trail captains and all members to post any comments about our trails such as blow-downs and location, chainsaw work needed, trail cleared, missing signs, etc. (Five Winds Members must login first to view or post.)

When many of the cross-country ski resorts have closed for the season, we are usually still running buses to our trail system.
