Now that it finally feels a little bit like summer, we'd like to spread the word that we are planning workdays at Pole Creek for Friday, August 9 and Saturday, August 10.  We will meet at the Forest Service parking lot in Buffalo each morning, and head up to the ski area.  Time TBA.

Thanks to a Johnson County Recreation District grant, we will once again be able to rent equipment to make our trail clearing work more efficient.  We will also have some other lighter duty maintenance work available.  We'd love any help we can get on either or both days!  

Email us if you have any questions and stay tuned for more info as the date approaches! 

Thanks as always for your continued support, and remember, if you can't help out physically, financial support is also greatly appreciated to aid our trail maintenance efforts!

Ski Season Kickoff at Mishap! Brewing Company in Buffalo on Saturday, December 8, 2018 from 1:30-3:30 PM.  Come meet your fellow skiers and hear about what PPNC has planned for the year!  Snacks will be provided, beverages available for purchase from MBC.

The annual Chili Fest at Willow Park will take place on Saturday, January 19, 2019, 11 AM to 2 PM. Free chili with all the fixings, hot drinks, a warming fire, free prize drawings, and free ski lessons will be available.

Join us NEXT WINTER for our second annual Skate Ski Clinic at the Buffalo Golf Course. Event is dependent upon snow conditions. Due to a lack of snow in Buffalo, we are cancelling the skate ski clinic for 2019.  We are sorry for any inconvenience and will plan on having an extra special event next year to make up for it!
