The Lop-it Loppet
Sundays October 22nd to November 19th from 2-5 p.m.
Volunteer with DXC this fall, as we trim back the forest to ensure a smooth start to the ski season! Last winter saw an early December blizzard which put a lot of hurt on our ski trails with hundreds and hundreds of small trees, limbs, and brush doubled over onto the ski trails. This fall, we'll spend some time trimming a little further back to ensure that we have a clear trail corridor, even if (and hopefully when) we see feet of snow come our way!
We hope you're getting the itch for ski season... Please consider spending a Sunday afternoon with us to give back to the trails that provide us all with so much enjoyment all winter long.
