The colder the better when it comes to making snow for the 95th Snowflake Ski Jump on Friday, Feb. 2 and Saturday, Feb. 3. Club volunteers got a good start making snow for the 2018 jump, with the cold snap earlier this month.
The ski club uses man-made snow for the hills, which is higher in water content and holds up to warmer temperatures longer than natural snow.
The ski club is in search of volunteers to help snow the scaffold, plus so many more tasks before the big jump next month. Work days are held Saturday mornings beginning at 9 a.m. The club is also in need of hill markers for the two-day event and housing for athletes and coaches.
The ski club holds weekly meetings on Wednesday evenings at 8 p.m., in Timber Coulee at the club house Anyone interested in volunteering or with housing availability should contact the club at 608-634-3211.
