    With lots of fresh snow, book early so you're not disappointed.  We expect a full bus.  There will be ski groups, a Five Winds Snowshoe Group and a Bruce Trail Snowshoe group.  The bus will be travelling on the 400 side, so anyone requesting the Waubaushene stop will be accommodated.  We will be skiing/snowshoeing in the Galla Lake/Marsh Trails area.

    Forecasts of frightful rain has not been as horrid as we thought, but in the end, we had insufficient registrations to justify this bus.  If people want to car pool, contact Brad Allard's office at 416-264-5036 by Saturday the 27th at noon.  Leave a message and those interested will be contacted to facilitate their desires!  The Spirit of Five Winds Lives On!

    Best numbers so far.  40 people have registered.  Still room on the bus.  We will be going up hwy 400 and likely be skiing and snow shoeing in the McCrae Lake vacinity.  Not quite as Arctic out this time.  Good times for all.

    Cold again, but with the rain, then freeze, of last week the snow was more supportive underfoot, climbing was easier, and the lakes and rivers were delightfully skiable.  Fantastic Day, and no reason to not look forward to our third couch-bus for the season.  Register now for the Glory to come!

    Cold temperatures meant nothing to the eager lot  that came out for our first bus of the year.  Our protective shells protected us from the wind most felt when in the open,  the apt use of age-old technique got us up the  steeper grades under the cover of trees, and fresh powder made for easy descents.  We stayed off lakes and marshes for the most part, but icing up was not a concern on trail and in the bush like it often can be this early in the season.  A great day was had by all.  Wipe your Sunday slate clean and join us for the 14th.
