The Winter Rendezvous offers plenty of time for meaningful conversation and games of Cribbage with Trail enthusiasts.

New this year are two roundtable sessions designed to foster dialogue about sharing resources to enhance local, and statewide, trail success.

Fun options include the Treehaven Tromp, a 5K or 10K snowshoe race on Saturday morning, freeform recreation on your own, roundtable discussions, scrapbooking, and open mic. Rooms at Treehaven are available for Friday and Saturday night.

After a day of winter sports, we’ll celebrate the success of the 2016 MSC season and look ahead to the 2017 schedule.

Conversations, card games and laughter will fill the lodge as the fire and midnight oil burns down.

Feel free to come for the day or stay the night. Registration is required, along with a modest fee for lodging and meals. Please register by Monday, January 30.
