Intershack registration is open for the coming year and an email is being sent to all 2016-2017 members about the 2017-2018 Fred's Energy Program.

Unfortunately, we were unable to come to a satisfactory agreement with Blue Flame/Liberty Propane for the coming heating season. Therefore, we are switching suppliers to Fred’s Energy.

Fred’s is a locally owned and operated entity; they have an impeccable reputation for integrity and service. Fred’s is able to to supply propane, oil, and provide installation and service for both.

Due to the change of suppliers, it will be necessary to switch tanks at the earliest opportunity. The switchover will be done as soon as possible, once you return your Intershack membership form and cheque to Intershack and Fred’s customer application form to Fred's Derby location.

Tailgate Closing Party - Saturday April 22, 2017

Stateside Parking Lot in conjunction with the Mountain.

The Tailgate Party and BBQ was a great time!

A good wrap-up to a great ski season. Thanks to all that attended events this year.

Mens and Ladies Ski Clinics - Saturday March 18, 2017
The Intershack ski clinics, both the women's clinic, run by Claire Draper and the men's clinic run by Mark Draper, delighted and were appreciated by all participants. Ten women, of varying ski skill levels, were given individual tips by Claire after she watched them carving their best turns on intermediate runs. Since many of the women were advanced skiers, Claire took them to the trees and shared her considerable glade techniques.

Mark also worked the six guys through their paces on both open slopes and the woods. His teaching was received enthusiastically.

After the clinics the whole gang and Other Shackers enjoyed lunch together at Howie's.

Lynda Fraser Reporting!
