Calling all skiers
Friday Night Lights, a unique ski experience for all ages and abilities, gets underway this Friday and Saturday from 6-8 p.m. Torches will light the way along the trails, and a warming fire and hot chocolate will also be provided. Stay after skiing to enjoy the fire and the company.
Snowshoes are encouraged, and headlamps are recommended to help on dark nights. The ski event usually happens on the Raven’s Way Loop starting at the Baycrest–DOT Trailhead. However, if conditions are too warm, the event may be moved to Sunset Loop Trailhead on Diamond Ridge.
Check the KNSC Facebook page for updates on the location.
