Getting Hard’ack Ready for Winter

Comments Off

A handful of individuals, including members of the FCMTBC, gathered at Hard’ack on Saturday morning to help get the hill ready for sledding, skiing, and snowboarding.

With a dozen or so people working, trash was picked up and weeds were taken down in a few short hours. Now, once the snow starts falling, the hill will be clear of brush and trash. (Let’s keep it that way!)
