Volunteer Opportunities

Please contact Bob or Jim if you are looking for volunteer opportunities.

September 21, Saturday:   Wood Stocking at Santiam Pass Shelters  
We will join the Mt. Jefferson Snowmobile Club and Forest Service staff at Ray Benson SnoPark to stock firewood in the Roger Schmidt, North Blowout, Island Junction and Brandenburg Shelters.  Wood will be split at Ray Benson, then hauled and stacked at the outlying shelters.  MJSC is providing lunch for volunteers (though you may wish to bring some treats to share) so you just need to bring gloves and water.  This is a huge task to complete in one day, so we need lots of volunteers.  Contact Mark Olson mailto:mark@olson.us or Jim Todd mailto:toddwac18@gmail.com for more details or to sign up.

OVERNIGHT SKI TRIP IN THE CANADIAN ROCKIES

Canmore Ski Trip
This is a multiday trip to one of the most scenic areas of the Canadian Rockies.  Skiing is at its best later in the winter when we are going since the major storms have past but it is still well below freezing to keep the snow dry for good skiing.  All types of skiing ,back country trail, groomed nordic and downhill are just a short drive away from our base location in Canmore (about and hour drive west of Calgary if you fly rather than drive).  The local groomed Nordic area, almost within walking distance from condo, offers plenty of challenging trails since it was built for Olympic ski competition. We will spend four nights in Canmore and then one night in northern Idaho for the drive up and another night for the drive back to Salem.  Condo type units where we are staying have small but complete kitchens. Both grocery stores and restaurants are numerous in Canmore.  At this point one condo is full with four people and another condo can be reserved if we get three or four more participants.  For some of us this will be our third or fourth time to Canmore so we think it is well worth the trip for the skiing and the scenery.  Leaving Salem on 3/29, returning to Salem on 4/4.  Call for more details if you are interested  Craig Wojcik  503xx931xx2705.
