Jackrabbits News

Fun for kids and parents, on skis or ...off.

This is the burrow, the place with the hot cocoa.

Jackrabbit Report March 2017

We had a great season of ski learning and play.  Highlights included our theme days (such as our Marshmallow Roast and Bushwhacking Day), skiing out to the winter tent, and many games played in and around the ski park. There were 120 skiers in the program this year, ranging from 3 to 13 in age. We had approximately 40 volunteer coaches involved this year with many PSHS students in our coaching group.

The Jackrabbit program has many people to thank.  First of all, we are always very grateful to our GNSCC staff made up of our Trail Groomers and Burrow Attendants.  Our awesome team of Jackrabbit coaches made up of high school and adult coaches was a very committed, talented and enthusiastic group who all made each Jackrabbitsession a blast.  We are also very thankful for the support of Kathleen McGill who once again this year was our Jackrabbit Volunteer Coordinator.  Without this large group of talented people, Jackrabbit wouldn't happen. Thanks goes to Thom Morrissey as well for taking and preparing our annual group photo.

As well, we had constant support from a large group of parent volunteers who helped out with theme days, hot chocolate brewing, and support in the Burrow.

For next year Greg Mason will be coordinating Jackrabbit.  After a number of years of co-coordinating, Graham Poole is stepping down from that position.  Finally, for next season, watch out for details in the fall about Jackrabbit registration, which usually takes place at the beginning of December.
