Sixteen people participated in the January 31 Ski and Snowshoe O', far fewer than signed up to come, probably due to people's concerns about not enough snow or icy conditions. Those fears were unfounded. Those who came had beautiful weather, user friendly snow that was excellent for skiing and snowshoeing, interestiung courses and, in general were enthusiastic about the experience. Two, after completing the course they signed up for, went out again on another course. Others stuck around to pick up controls.
