Kahler Glen Ice Skating

014Spring? Hold on.. the Ice Skating Rink is now open for business! The sunny cold weather has been wonderful at settling down the surface and as of Monday is available for use. Our professional size ice skating rink at Kahler Glen was featured in the Wenatchee World earlier this year.  See the full article and photos, link. The daily Rink Report is located on our Snow Report Page.

Volunteer help is what makes this skating possible in our area so if you can help Gary Schuster keep this operating he’d be delighted to hear from you at 206-849-6466.

Annual YMCA Spring Work Parties

CaptureThis spring we have two volunteer work parties scheduled for April 11-12 and April 18-19. We will provide free lodging and meals for all those who are in attendance.

This is a great way to come get some hands on work and enjoy fellowship here at camp.

Some of the Bigger projects that we have are:
We took down several trees this winter that we need to get bucked into rounds and split/stacked. we could use lots of strong backs and wood splitters if you have them.
We’ll be making repairs to an irrigation line that broke last fall.
We’ll also be opening everything back up for the seasons that means unpacking the kitchen, cleaning out the cabins, painting projects, and getting the garden ready for planting.

For more information or to RSVP contact Tim McElravy, Camp Director at (509) 763.9622 or gro.pmacywlnull@yvarlecmt

skiphotoUnfortunately all grooming is suspended until we receive more snow.   

There is insufficient snow for grooming of ski trails.  The sled hill is still open and in fair shape.  Note the North Park is closed effective February 17th as we remove remaining pockets of trees infected with root disease.  Though we’d prefer not to impact our ski trails, we also need snow on the ground during logging activities to protect vegetation and soils.

South Park and Kahler:  South last groomed 2/16.  We will groom most main routes with the best coverage.  No tracks set. Kahler no longer groomed.
North Park:  Closed for removal of diseased trees.
Nason Ridge: Last groomed on Mon 1/26, no further grooming until more snow.  Many bare and thin spots throughout.
Chiwawa:  Last groomed with Snow cat on 2/2.  Too many thin, bare, or wet areas for continued grooming.
Sled Hill:  Groomed Thursdays – Mondays.  Open – Should be open and groomed through the weekend.
