What a great winter it was last year, here and abroad! We are obviously hoping for another white winter here in the northeast later this year and the chance to get out and about, on forest trails, golf courses, cycle paths, wherever the snow is good. Keep checking the website and use the telephone/email contacts for snow in the hills and elsewhere.
Planned trips for the 2011/12 winter season include telemark skiing in the alps in January, gentle track skiing in Austria, and in Norway, both an easier hut to hut tour for the less experienced, and a more demanding tour for those more experienced.
Roller skiing, social events, and trips to the climbing wall in Byker complete the line-up for the coming months.
As always, all are welcome to join in the fun. Check out our Facebook group 'Tyneside Loipers' to find out who is going skiing (summer or winter) locally. If you want to join us but don't have the necessary kit, we might be able to help. A list of club kit is in this word document.
