Groundhog Day Ski to Find Wilbur: February 2

JOIN US on Groundhog's Day, Wednesday February 2nd at 10am from the Town Trailhead as we ski in search of WILBUR! Last year Wilbur was spotted retreating into his home after seeing his shadow and ensuring 6 more weeks of winter. We are hoping for the same result this year! Join us as we ski along the Community Trail towards the Bitterbrush and Barnsley Loops in search of Wilbur. And by search, we mean search...unlike his eastern brethren,Punxsutawney Phil, Wilbur is not much of a show-boat groundhog. Rather than mugging for cameras and fan fare, Wilbur prefers to be aloof and free to be a groundhog. We don't cage him here but rather search for him on the local ski and snowshoe trails through town and about. Our ski tour will be led by a local Naturalist who will assist us with groundhog spotting and tracking!
Again we hope you can join us 10am, Wednesday February 2nd at the Town Trailhead as we ski in search of Wilbur and his shadow. We plan on skiing from 10-11:30am with the proclamation at 11:30am back at the Town Trailhead. Refreshments will be graciously provided by Backcountry Coffee. See you then!
