    Join us for our popular ski trip to Valley Spur near Munising, MI.  

    We will leave Friday morning at 8 am and will ski at Brown County Reforestation Camp near Green Bay (30 km of ski trails, chalet, and 3 km of snowshoe trails) or at Valley Spur. We plan to ski Saturday and Sunday at Valley Spur Ski Trail with 45 km of trails that are some of the most scenic to be found anywhere. Valley Spur Ski Trail is in the Hiawatha National Forest outside of Munising MI.  Picturesque, 3-km snowshoe trails are also available, and a cozy log cabin. 

    Saturday was to be the annual “Taste and Glide” event that benefits Valley Spur, but that event has been cancelled due to Covid-19 and the log cabin will not be open this ski season for the same reason. However, the log cabin will be open only for our group as a private party along with a food event with soup, homemade bread, sweets, hot chocolate and coffee.  

    Accommodations are at the Holiday Inn Express near Munising with sauna, whirlpool, swimming pool, free continental breakfast, and microwave and refrigerator in each room. 

    All ski areas have both skating and striding trails for all skiing abilities.

    Save $20 if you register by 2/2/22.
