Monthly Meetings of the Rochester Nordic Ski Club are no longer regularly scheduled. Special events will be listed as they become available.

Members have commented that it can be difficult to fit our normal first Thursday of the month meeting into hectic schedules so the Board has decided that we will cut back of formal group meetings this year and concentrate of more scheduled days of local skiing.

Local day outings :

-Will be listed as they become available.

-Send us a note if you have an interest in going with a group for an overnight to Tug Hill/Winona/ Osceola.

Day Outings:

We plan to have ski days at various local parks, weather permitting, and fallback trips to Harriet Hollister if we donít have the snow locally. Trip destination and carpool meeting points will be announced on this website by the Thursday evening preceding the weekend. We will normally meet at the local park parking area, or if traveling a distance, carpool at a site in that general direction. Details of final destination, meet-up location, and time, will be on the website by Thursday nite before the outing.
