Don’t have enough time for Camp 4 but want some winter outdoor activity? Your Porsche is tucked away for the winter and you’re looking for some enjoyment with fellow Porsche enthusiasts? The PCA-UCR ski day on Friday, March 7 at the beautiful Osler Bluff Ski Club is the answer for you.
The ski club, which is just under a two-hour drive from Toronto, provides some of the best 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 maximize your time on the hill and skiing enjoyment. By early January, Mother Nature has already provided the best snow conditions for Osler in recent memory.
The day is open to UCR members, their families and friends they may wish to bring along. The lift ticket for the day is $79.00 per person and is paid to Osler Bluff Ski Club on the day. If your ski equipment no longer passes your tech inspection, Squire John’s ski shop at the Club provides rentals of skis, boots, snowboards and helmets with easy prior arrangements. If some in your group don’t ski or snowboard, there are many other activities. The Club has snowshoe 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. Our group will be based at the Orchard Lodge of the ski club, where there is food service. You may also 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 firstname.lastname@example.org to register, or with any questions. Your valid PCAUCR membership number is required for registration. Past ski days have been well attended so please sign up so we can plan for the group.
