The Sensational Skiers will start the new season on Wednesday, January 7. Over 20 years ago the Sensational Skiers began as a 4-H Club. When 4-H could no longer sponsor, the leaders decided to keep the club going as a community club. They had many, many families taking advantage of the opportunity to ski together mid week at group rates. They now only have a few skiers and would like to have more join. They meet every Wednesday at 5 p.m. in the main lodge. Call Susan at 679-2386 or Nancy at 679-2273 for more information.
