Ski day Friday March 6, 2015

2cf208552

Many of us have put our track car away for the season and are looking for the next activity that will provide the thrill of speed and test our skills at carving through corners.  Can’t make it to Camp 4, then Skiing and snowboarding naturally come to mind. The PCAUCR ski day is on Friday March 6 at the beautiful Osler Bluff Ski Club, which is just south of Collingwood and about a two hour drive from Toronto. The ski club provides some of some of the finest skiing in the area with trails for all levels of ski ability. The variety of terrain from the multiple sharp S turns of “Gulch” to the steep fast straights of “Laurie’s Bluff” will appeal to those missing the thrill of the track. The private club environment and high speed lifts maximizes your skiing enjoyment. The past PCAUCR ski day had 50 participants and we had a truly amazing day.

Osler ski run1The day is open to UCR members, their families and a limited number of friends they may wish to bring along. The lift ticket cost for the day is $80.00 per person and is paid to Osler Bluff Ski Club on the day. If your ski equipment is out of date and no longer safe, Squire John’s ski shop is at the Club and provides rentals of skis, boots, snowboards and helmets with easy prior arrangements.  There are many other activities for those in your group that may not ski or snowboard. The Club has snow shoe trails (equipment rentals at Squire Johns) or if relaxation and pampering is more to their liking, the stunning Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain is a short drive away ( www.scandinave.com/en/bluemountain ). Shopping and art galleries are also close by at the Village at Blue Mountain and in historic downtown Collingwood.  The ski club has restaurant facilities or you may bring your own lunch.

After the day on the hill, everyone is welcome to an après-ski wine and cheese and a warm fire at a nearby log cabin. Your host for the day is UCR member Don Lewtas. Please contact Don at [email protected] to register or with any questions. Your valid PCAUCR membership number is required for registration.  Past days have been well attended so please sign up so we can plan for the group.
