October 21

Cheyenne Ski Club's Twelfth Chili Cook-off will take place at the Knights of Columbus at 507 West 28th St. Show up with five bucks and vote for the best of the house (free for kids under 12). Call Joe at 635-8621 for more information if you want to submit your best concoction - all submissions are welcome and eligible for the coveted Traveling Ladle.   Doors are open at 5:30 pm, with serious chili beginning not long after. This is a great chance to get acquainted and get more info on our trips. Last year's winner Dino will be defending against all comers.

Signups will be accepted for any and all trips on the Nordic schedule, and for the December trip to Winter Park this evening.

Special Feature:  This year we're also having an optional costume contest.   Try out this year's Halloween costume by  wearing it to the Cook-off!  Special prizes will be awarded to the winner of the costume contest. Lift tickets from several areas will be awarded as door prizes.

Our first regular meeting.  This will be your first opportunity to sign up for the Jackson trip, while Nordic signups continue.  Meeting begins at 7:30 at the Knights of Columbus.

November 4

Colorado Snow Sports Expo at Colorado Convention Center in downtown Denver. We'll be carpooling down for the day.   Meet at WYDOT at 8:00 AM on Saturday.  After a day of shopping for equipment, buying passes and picking up brochures for all the places the club can't take you to this year, we'll stop off for a bite on the way home. A $3 discount off the $10 window price is available at their web site.  Click here for more details or call 303-640-8000

We'll be returning to the newly-renovated Hynds Lodge, midway between Cheyenne and Laramie for a chance to get reacquainted and enjoy some snacks.. Times to be announced.

December 7

Regular Meeting . Program to be determined. Signups for the Aspen trip in early February will be accepted tonight.

December 9

We'll spend this Saturday at Happy Jack, just to get a chance to try out the skinny skis.  This is a great opportunity to try out Nordic skiing if you've never done so.  Rentals are available in Laramie. Snacks will be provided.

December 15-17

We're heading back to Winter Park after a hiatus of several years.  They typically have great early season snow and we're off to check it out.  Great first trip of the year!

December 21

The night of our favorite Holiday Gift Exchange.   All members and guests are welcome. The cost?  One wrapped "White Elephant" gift (marked as "adult" or "child") for each person attending.  (White Elephant generally means something you've used that you're ready to pass on to a new owner.)

December 30 - January 1

New Year's in the mountains.  We'll headquarter at the Buford cabins 20 miles west of Laramie and will celebrate New Year's Eve there or in nearby Centennial.  Skiing will be on the eastern side of the Snowy Range

January 4

Meeting is at the Knights of Columbus, with a program on what you need to know to enjoy Nordic skiing.  Vail signups will be taken starting this evening.

January 12 - 15

Three days in Jackson. Arriving in Jackson on Friday evening we'll ski Jackson and Targhee Saturday and Sunday, then return to Cheyenne after skiing on Martin Luther King Day.

January 18

Enjoy our 6th Annual Dessert Bake-off.   Bring in your favorite dessert and compete for fabulous prizes.

January 26-28

Nordic trip to Snow Mountain Ranch with its impeccably groomed trails.   Located near Granby, this is one of the premier X-C facilities in the area.   Lodging is in well-appointed cabins and there'll be room for those that want to visit the nearby downhill areas of Winter Park and Mary Jane.

February 1

Meeting at the Knights.  First opportunity to sign up for the A-Basin trip in April.

February 1 - 4

Three-Day Alpine trip to Aspen  - the magic continues!  We'll stay in nearby Carbondale, and take our bus to Aspen daily, where you can indulge your choice of their four fabulous mountains.

February 15

Regular meeting at the Knights.  Recognition of our Past Presidents.

February 16 - 19

Long Nordic weekend at Michigan Lakes just west of Cameron Pass.  Three days on the skinny skis.  This is an ideal area for all skill levels.

March 1

Meeting at the Knights.

March 15

Yet another Treasure Hunt!  After your team solves a series of puzzles and locates clues around Cheyenne, you'll end up at a local restaurant to compare notes with all the other teams.

March 9 - 11

The destination for this weekend is the cabins at Columbine, which is north of Steamboat Springs a piece.  You'll find an excellent trail system at Steamboat Lake. But if you'd prefer to stay there and drive back to Steamboat for the day at the area, let Art know early so he can secure additional cabins.

March 16 - 18

A return to Vail and Beaver Creek for spring skiing after the great time we had last couple of years.   It tough to beat sunny spring conditions in the Back Bowls. (Of course, you won't catch us making guarantees like that!)

April 5

Election results and refreshments

April 21

Final ski trip is a day trip to A-Basin.  This is atop the Continental Divide with its delightful (if unpredictable) spring skiing.   Many members will be going up to stay in Frisco the Friday before - nice Continental breakfast included with your room.  We'll provide Del's delectable barbeque lunch at the ski area.  Last year, some of us went early or stayed late to partake of even more great spring skiing.

June 9 (tentative)

A day rafting on the Poudre River. Details soon.
