Friday, February 17 - Monday, February 20, 2017
One of Troop 283's most popular outings is back! We will be skiing and snowboarding at Giants Ridge Ski Resort near Biwabik, MN. Camp for scouts and adult leaders is in the lodge at Silha Center, YMCA Camp Warren, near Eveleth, MN. Non-scout family members are welcome - and can purchase tickets and rentals at a discount with the troop - but lodging is on your own.
This trip is designed to provide scouts and families with options. Ski, snowboard, or cross-country ski!. Ski one day or two days. The “main contingent” of the Troop will travel Friday night and Monday morning. We will need drivers to transport scouts.
Love to Ski or Snowboard? Work on the Snow Sports Merit Badge!
Are you interested in working on the Snow Sports merit badge requirements? The merit badge will be offered to scouts interested in working on the badge. Please be aware that the skiing requirements can be difficult to complete during the weekend. You must demonstrate your ability in the requirements. We are surveying interest now so that our counselor can plan accordingly. Merit badge requirements can be found here - Snow Sport merit badge
