Are you staying warm SkiSparks Families? What an epic week it has been!
At this point we are planning on skiing at Battle Creek (Yeah!!!) this Sunday from 2:00-3:30 (Yeah!!!). Please check your email on Sunday morning with a confirmation of this plan. If it will be raining at 2:00, we will cancel. But for now, please plan on having a beautiful, WARM, ski on our home trails. of Battle Creek.
We've been watching tomorrow's forecast carefully, because it looks like it will be right on the edge of guidelines for acceptable conditions. Temperatures at 3 p.m. look OK, but there will be windchill and potential snow blowing, making it more challenging to keep everyone comfortable. We've decided to go forward but want to remind everyone to dress by protecting exposed skin and with good wind protection (no cotton pants or leggings!).
Battle Creek SkiSparks WILL be meeting tomorrow at Hyland from 4:30-6:00. The temperature is forecast to be around 7 degrees and the snow will start falling just as we are finishing up. Let's grab this chance to get outside and breath the fresh air before the big freeze sets in!
In colder temperatures please follow the MYSL clothing guidelines summed up like this:
The predicted high for Saturday January 26th is currently 10º and I am reminded of the wonderful Norwegian saying – “Det finnes ikke dårlig vær, bare dårlig klær!” which translates to “There is no bad weather, only bad clothes!”
A quick message to let you know that we will again be skiing at Hyland Park Reserve from 4:30-6:00 this Sunday, January 27. I am keeping a close eye on the weather. It looks like during our club time the temperature will actually be rising and the snow will be moving in. We could potentially be skiing in a winter wonderland!
I will send out full announcements tomorrow. Until then, keep up your snow dances and record you Ks on the K counter!
