      News & Info

      MACC Race Team Info

      Our race team skied at Boyne Mt. this past weekend. Saturday’s race was challenging due to several inches of soft snow. We had two out of three racers place in their class, with Todd Newman, our own VP, taking a 3rd place. On Sunday we had great conditions and did well with a 1st and 2nd. 

      The last race weekend is March 10 - 12. You can race as a guest for $10 per race. We plan to rent a cottage near Boyne. If you are interested on joining us for the weekend, contact Alan Osterdale at before Thursday March 2. (You do not have to race).

      Terrace Inn

      A great time was had by more than 50 ski club members who attended the Terrace Inn trip on February 24-26.
