Shawnee Peak Program is cancelled for Jan. 24th

After consulting with Shawnee Peak, Accuweather, and other area ski programs, we will not be going to Shawnee Peak Jan. 24th, due to the predicted rain in tomorrows forecast.  Reasons for cancelling: 1. it would not be a positive experience for our group to ski/ride in the rain, 2. the conditions on the slopes may be unsafe especially for beginners, and 3. road conditions may be icy for travel. The make up date is set for March 7th. Sorry to have to cancel but truly feel that it is the right call.Thanks
