EAGLE Ski Club is Back!

The snow is falling and that means the EAGLE Ski Club is back for the 2014-15 season! Starting in late January, we’ll be doing trips to both Cascade and Devil’s Head and all EAGLE families are invited (although kids under 10 will be required to travel with a parent or their own chaperone)! Starting Tuesday, Dec. 9, the Ski Club website (http://eagleskiclub.wordpress.com) will be open with this season’s dates, prices and other important information. Check it out, mark your calendars, and make plans to join us. Can’t wait to see all of you on the slopes!
