SKI & SNOWBOARD COMMUNITY:
National Winter Activity Center (NWAC) – Hidden Valley Ski area has passed into history with their closing a few seasons ago. Luckily, the facility has not gone to waste. It has been resurrected as National Winter Activity Center, providing under-privileged and inner city children with the opportunity to experience outside winter sports. YOU can make a difference by joining their team. See the attached flyer and read more info on their website – http://www.winter4kids.org
NJSSC GUIDEBOOKS – available at all Craigmeur Ski Club club meetings until they are gone
