CH SNOW

Did you know that winters in Copper Harbor are going to get even cooler?

A group of adventurous locals have started a new club in town.  It’s called CH SNOW.  With all the potential this town has as a winter wonderland, CH SNOW has decided to see how far they can take it.

They have been collaborating with a few existing local organizations which include:

  • Copper Harbor Downtown Development Authority
  • Copper Harbor Trails Club
  • Brockway Mountain Challenge
  • Keweenaw Mountain Lodge
  • Rock Solid Trail Contracting
  • Copper Harbor Improvement Association’s Advertising and Marketing Committee

Some of the efforts that the group would like to promote yet this winter are:

  • 30km of groomed snow bike, cross country ski and snow shoe trails with updated grooming reports
  • The Copper Dog 150 sled dog race held on February 28, 29 and March 1
  • The Brockway Mountain Challenge snow bike race held on March 21
  • Crust riding for fat bikes in the springtime
  • Harbor ice reports
  • An outdoor snow science adventure class (TBD)

That’s right!  Winter is not over!  For current information on those events, like CH SNOW on Facebook!

Some of the up and coming dreams for the group include (but are not limited to):

  • A groomed trail expansion for snow biking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing from the trails in Copper Harbor up to potentially new trails at the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge (proposed 8km)
  • An ice rink at the tennis court at the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge
  • The resurrected terrain park for snowboarding and skiing at the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge
  • More events in January and Feburary throughout the town
  • An all-inclusive family feel for people who want to enjoy a weekend of never-ending activities, relaxation and socialization

Does this sound like it’s right up your alley?  Then, seriously, follow CH SNOW on Facebook, and stay in the loop.
