Kids and parents are starting to ask about our closing date. The truth is that we are not sure. We plan on being open for sure this Thursday, March 6th through Sunday, March 9th and next week Friday, March 14th through Sunday, March 16th. We may open Saturday, March 22 and Sunday March 23, depending on the weather and attendance. We cannot stay open any longer because we have to have this joint clean and the boot stink out for the City of Grand Haven to take it over on April 1. We do still plan
Our annual kid driven fundraiser, Shred the Bowl, is coming up on Saturday, March 8th from 7:00pm-9:30pm. It is a fun evening that includes two events, a Freestyle competition on Al's Run and a Boarder/Skier cross on Tank Hill. Kids can come into the lodge and pick up a registration packet. The minimum donation to participate is $25, but more money means more chances at sweet prizes and more money for features. Registration includes a t-shirt, Taco Bell dinner, chances at door prizes, and medals
We were hoping that our lovely groomer would make it for one more season. Unfortunately, it is looking very bad. During the past few years, we have budgeted $15,000 in repairs to keep the groomer up and running. This year, we have already had a $13,000 repair and other issues arose on its test run. We have looked into renting and leasing another one and due to economic factors in the country, that is not available. The used market is similar so here we are...looking for a new one.
