No Approved  2020-2021 Ski Trips

...For Now

The BOD  disapproved trips proposed by the Ski Trips Committee on the grounds that it was too great a risk at this time.

The Trip Planning Committee and BOD still hope to put together a Schuss Instructional trip, one to Terrace Inn, and one or more Out West.

They plan on revisiting the issue in August or September when we'll be closer to prospective travel dates. And, we'll be further along in the world's response to the Covid pandemic.

Member News & Tips

Taken from the
Huron Waterloo Pathways Initiative

These concrete structures were found during trail construction on the Dexter-Chelsea segment of the B2B. They are foundations for the water tower that powered local railroad engines. The water was taken from 4 Mile Lake and stored in the water tower, which was used to power steam engines.

This section of the railroad was unique in that it featured a belly loading on the fly "track pan," which allowed steam engines to load the water without having to stop. This was much more efficient than stopping to pick up water, allowing the train to carry less water and more payload.

Man-made and natural features are a part of what makes this path through our county so special.  It takes a community of stewards to keep the Border-to-Border Trail clean and beautiful. Help keep these structures graffiti and litter free for everyone to enjoy.

As ever an excellent presentation on the Huron Waterloo Pathways Initiative.
