Latest COVID information from the State of Michigan

No Approved  2020-2021 Ski Trips

...For Now

The BOD  disapproved trips proposed by the Ski Trips Committee on the grounds that it was too great a risk at this time.

The Trip Planning Committee and BOD still hope to put together a Schuss Instructional trip, one to Terrace Inn, and one or more Out West.

They plan on revisiting the issue in August or September when we'll be closer to prospective travel dates. And, we'll be further along in the world's response to the Covid pandemic.

Membership Year Extended

  • The club's Board of Directors elected to extend current memberships until 31-AUG-2020.

To get on the list click through to the event

Download, fill out, and send in your application with a check.

The check will be held until closer to the event.  If the bike trip happens your check will get cashed.  If not, the check gets destroyed. 

It's the simplest procedure for these uncertain times.


Joe Knopp is also on the Board and is Chairman of the Alternative Trips Committee

Darlene chairs the club's Social Activities committee.  Normally our members keep her pretty busy organizing our calendar.   We're going to be sooo out of practice when we start up again!

She's also a Director on the Board and has been known to lead a weekly cycling event.


Member News & Tips

February 1952 cover of Michigan Out of Doors depicts the Midwest's first chairlift, a single seater on the Hemlock run at Boyne Mountain.

Everett Kircher, bought the original single seat chairlift from Sun Valley ID when they tore it down and put it on Hemlock in 1947.

Everett Kircher, a founder of Boyne Resorts and a member of the Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame.

Marilyn Monroe riding the chair when it was still at Sun Valley.

Bob Katz, recently gave an interview to Park City's Summit Daily News and Alan Osterdale sent your editor a heads-up.  Unfortunately that article can't be read unless you sign up (free) with the SDN.

But, some podcasts by Katz on Soundcloud are getting good reviews in various Ski forums.
