Friday, March 1, 2019 at the Osler Bluff Ski Club near Collingwood Ontario. https://www.oslerbluff.com/
Returning skiers will recognize the slopes, but should be in for a treat with the revitalized and expanded Clubhouse!
While the city may be clear of snow, the ski trails at Osler are well covered and more snow is in the forecast. Ski conditions are very good. We will be one of the first groups to enjoy the benefits of Osler’s Clubhouse Enhancement. Alternative dining measures at Osler are in place should the new Clubhouse opening be delayed. We hope you can join us for a great day of skiing on Friday March 1. A gift generously donated by Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd. will be raffled off to Members at the ski day and the law firm of Himelfarb Proszanski is helping with sponsorship.
The private ski club provides some of the best terrain in southern Ontario for skiers and boarders of all abilities and the high speed lifts ensures your time is on the hill and not waiting. There are restaurant facilities at the Ski Club for lunch (you pay for what you order) and there will be a designated area for our group. If you are not a skier, there are other activities including snowshoeing at Osler and for pampering the Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain is a short distance away https://www.scandinave.com/blue-mountain/en/. Advance reservations required for the Spa. At the end of the day there will be an après-ski wine and cheese gathering. At the time of writing the season is off to a good start with fresh snow covering the trails and snowmaking in process. The particulars for the day are below.
