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.
