Working Bees

ohu mahi

The autumn working bees are very important to the strength of the club, not only in getting the necessary maintenance work done by members, but also to build club spirit. We will to publish every Thursday an email to members outlining the upcoming weekends' working bee activities and who to contact should you be willing. Your volunteer labour will be much appreciated!

2015 Working Bee Schedule

Remember, a working bee qualifier is now applied to 'discounted' member season passes. Working bees are required to be completed by 31 May to qualify for the 'discounted' season pass rate, otherwise full price season pass rate applies. 1 member working bee still qualifies for 1 free nights accommodation at SMC Lodge, or 1 free days skiing, whichever you chose.

If you are keen in assisting in one of the scheduled working bees, please contact the weekend organisers as listed below. The working bee day is scheduled for Sundays, depending on availablilty/weather.
