The Story

The mission of the Lakewood Cross Country Ski Club is to promote and maintain the Lakewood Cross Country Trail system and to support healthy and active lifestyles for all ages. We are committed to the continued preservation and improvement of our trail system for future generations. This year we celebrate our 40th anniversary, a truly remarkable accomplishment. Today we are asking for your support to continue fulfilling our mission.

A recent membership survey identified that trail grooming equipment is a top priority that would enhance the trail usability for our members. Therefore we are proud to announce our Capital Campaign with the intent to update our grooming equipment to better serve our members, local community, and visiting public.

The goal of the campaign is to raise $40,000 to purchase a UTV with quad tracks, including a track setter and pull-behind mower with accessories. Your support to this campaign is critical to our ability to provide high-quality skiing at Lakewood Cross Country Ski Club. The new grooming equipment will replace our outdated snowmobile and will give
us the bonus ability to save money with our summer and fall trail cleaning, mowing, and sign maintenance. Your donation is tax-deductible, as we are a 501(c)(3) organization.

Join the Lakewood Cross Country Ski Club Facebook group for up to date information on trail conditions, our 40th celebration, and the Capital Campaign.

***UPDATE FROM CLUB PRESIDENT***

At the club’s spring meeting Tim reported that over $16,000 has been raised for the Capital Campaign.  After some discussion, it was decided to focus on purchasing the quad track and grooming equipment, with an expense for these items of approximately $32,000.  A motion to spend $6,000 from checking and $11,000 from a CD to fund the purchase was made by Jody and seconded by Dale and was approved unanimously.  The expense still leaves the club safe with $10,000 in the CD and over $5,000 in checking.  

We expect to have the equipment available for use in the 2018-2019 ski season.  

THANK YOU to all contributors for making this purchase possible.
