A Word From Our President

Greetings Fellow Skiers, Snowboarders, Hikers, and Mountain Bikers!

Our Committee Chairs have been busy planning our summer events and trips. We have some exciting outdoor activities coming up — kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, a Whitewater Center River Jam, and our annual members lake party. Be sure to sign up for our August whitewater rafting weekend at ACE Resorts in West Virginia by June 30th.
