Hello Ski Tigers!
We’ve had an excellent season so far, and tomorrow night is the first of our three exclamation points that finishes out our ski season . . . the Jr. Bear Chase!
Your registration with the Ski Tigers program includes the Jr. Bear Chase, so your fees are already covered.
We have four awesome races planned:
Medals will be given to all finishers and awards given to the 1st Place finishers.
Registration will be held between 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Friday 3/9 at the Swedetown Chalet. Come upstairs to fill out a form and get your race bib. The first race will start at 5:30 with the 1k Classic U8. The rest will start every 5 minutes after that.
I’m looking forward to seeing you on the snow tomorrow!

Jr. Bear Chase Coordinator
Ski Tiger Youth Program members,
Unfortunately, the predicted temperatures have dropped and the wind has
pickup up enough to result in wind chills of -15F at 11 am today. Since
this is clearly beyond the limits of our Youth Program weather policy,
today's session is canceled.
Distribution of this year's awesome Ski Tigers t-shirt will move to Jan
20th at Swedetown.
CCST Board President
The board has been watching the weather forecast for tomorrow's Youth Program session. Air temperature is predicted to be within acceptable limits and have been warming all week. The predicted wind chill is right on the edge of -10F depending on your weather source.
With the variation in predictions and the light winds expected, at this time we still plan to hold Youth Program ski sessions at Michigan Tech tomorrow 11 am - 12 noon. We will continue to monitor the weather and and communicate a final decision to you no later than 8 am tomorrow (Saturday) via email lists and Facebook.
Thank you for understanding in the case where we are right on the limits of our weather policy (http://www.skitigers.com/faq-youth-program.html).

Hello Ski Tiger families-
It's hard to believe that another great season has come to a close and the Picnic in the Snow is already upon us!
Cross Country sports will be providing hot dogs and all of the fixings. In order to make the picnic a success, we need a few things from you:
1) Three volunteers to help haul food and equipment and cook hot dogs. These folks will be needed at 10:00 a.m. SHARP (let's call it 9:55) at the M203 trailhead for Swedetown. Rick at CCS mentioned that in the past, volunteers have been late almost every year. If you are a *timely* person and still need some volunteer hours for the organization, please let Tracy Webb or Kevin Hubert know that you're available to meet Rick at 9:59 on Saturday and be ready to haul and cook. PLEASE ARRIVE EARLY.
2) Some food donations, similar to this past weekend's Tiger Games. Please bring something to pass. Think: clementines, apple slices, veggie tray, pretzels, etc... things that can be eaten without utensils. Keep in mind that what goes in must also come out, so try to keep waste/wrappers/etc. to a minimum.
3) Everyone is then invited to be at the M203 trailhead to Swedetown at 11am on this Saturday. The trailhead is about 4 miles from the intersection of US 41 in Calumet or is easily accessed from the Hancock side also.
Directions and more information can be found here: Picnic in the Snow
Thanks again for your participation. I look forward to celebrating with you on Saturday!
Traci Webb & Kevin Hubert
