Instructions:  All members can upload pictures to the web site.  Please try to do so early in the week.  The pictures help to show how much snow we have in our ski area.  Please be selective on the pictures and post small files.  The files posted on our web site are less than 500 kb or 1/2 mb.  Most cameras are at least 5 mb (5000 kb), so at least 20 times larger than you need.  If you're measuring by size, 640 x 480 size will be more than enough to show the pictures well.

You must first be logged in to the web site to see an Upload button.  Click the Upload button and scroll to where your pictures are located.  Choose your files (max 5 at a time).  Click Upload and your files will upload.  If you see a picture that is incorrect, you will be able to delete it by clicking on the picture and selecting the trashcan.

Winter Bus:  Ski & Snowshoe

Close to 40 skiers and snowshoers were out on the bus this week.  The air was crisp and cool with the sun shining.  Lots and lots of snow on the ground and on the trees.  Routes had to be all land-based and we stuck mostly to our trail system as water courses were not safe to cross.  We did have to watch out for wet areas under the snow if we broke too far down, so that we did not ice up as it could freeze quite fast on contact.  Beautiful day to be out in the woods.
