The first informational meeting for the Winter Ride program will be held at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, November 7 at the Blaine Middle School library.
New this year is a mini-equipment swap at 6 p.m. before the meeting. People are invited to bring used gear that they would like to sell or trade. The gear should be clearly marked with price, owner’s name and phone number. The goal is that as students outgrow their gear, younger students will have the opportunity to purchase it.
The Winter Ride program will begin on Saturday, January 5, 2013, and will run for eight consecutive Saturdays. The program is geared for middle and high school students and is intended to introduce them to snow sports. Lessons, equipment rentals, and season passes to the Mt. Baker ski area are offered at discounted prices.
