Night Skiing May Begin (Weather Permitting) November 29th.
Friends of Higley Flow State Park is pleased to announce that we are
continuing our Evenings at the Park program for 2016 -m
2017. Conditions permitting, we are preparing to begin night
skiing on Tuesday, November 29
As you may recall, the program allows the Park and Lodge to be open from 8:00 AM until 8:00 PM on Tuesdays & Thursdays.
for the program to be successful, we need individuals or families
to volunteer as hosts for two hours from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.
Volunteers are free to ski or snowshoe, but need to be at the
Lodge for closing at 8:00 to ensure that the lot is empty, the
door is locked, and that everyone has exited the Park. Hosts
are also free to hang out in the Lodge and greet people.
It's a great opportunity to meet acquaintances and other users of
the Park, field questions, and highlight the efforts of the
Friends group. I am taking over for Tom French who has been arranging
for this coverage so well since the program started. Feel free to make
any suggestions that will help me to keep night skiing maximally
If you are able to volunteer, please respond to this e-mail
with the date(s) you would like to host. I will do my best
to see that volunteers get the nights they most prefer, although it
gets a little tight on some specific nights. We will see how it
goes. Currently, I am booking for Nov 29 and
all Tuesdays and Thursdays in December. The December dates
(conditions allowing) will be: 1, 6, 8, 13,15, 20, 22, 27, & 29.
the program will begin once conditions allow,meaning skiable
snow. This will be determined by Park Administration and our
expert grooming team and announced through local media outlets, e-blast
ski reports, and our website. Please do not assume there is
skiing at the Park in the evenings until you have heard from a reliable
you volunteer for an evening, but conditions are not yet acceptable, we
will let you know and of course, your services will not be required
knows what the season will bring? Today's snow and the prediction of
many inches to come portends a great season. Let's hope it makes up for
last year, and then some!
Thank you for your support and I look forward to seeing you at the Park.
