It was an exciting day for cross-country enthusiasts in the Notre Dame area. Members of the Birch Mountain Sports group have worked hard to provide an opportunity for skiers to dust off those skis, and enjoy some awesome skiing right on their doorsteps.


After months of hard work preparing and grooming of their outmoded and newly revised cross-country trails they hosted a Grand Re-Opening of La Perdrix Cross Country Ski Trails on Saturday, January 12th. The trail head is located at the south entrance sign to Notre Dame de Lourdes on Highway 244. It is just two kms south of Highway 244/245 junction on the east side of Highway 244.


Individuals were invited to ski the trails, enjoy hot dogs and hot chocolate around a toasty warm bonfire. Memberships and rental equipment were available.


The Birch Mountain Sports groups consisted of executive members Victor Chappellaz, Mike DePauw and Audrey Comte of Notre Dame de Lourdes. Sue Davidson, Heather Bruce, Trudy Heal reside in Portage la Prairie.
