Completing the survey is an easy process done directly online, from your email account. You're input is valuable so we encourage you to fill out the survey honestly and promptly.
** More 2013 Trip Reports
3 new trip reports have recently been submitted, and are now available for your reading on the "Trip Report" page of this website. Don Nelson penned the Schweitzer trip report, while trip leader Dave White inserted his usual twisted humor into his report from the Jackson Hole. Eric Wieczorek posted a hilarious account of his recent Mount Bohemia ski trip on Facebook. While not an official Red Eye ski trip, it's frequent reference to the Red Eye Ski club, and incredible first person humor makes this one a must read.

*** The "Pinehurst Project" -
The next "Neighborhood Meeting" for the Pinehurst Project will be Wed. April 17th. The meeting begins at 5:30 pm at the Pinehurst Park Pavilion. Your attendance and support for this exciting winter recreation project is encouraged.
A local community group has been formed to pursue restoring and developing the winter recreation facilities at Pinehurst Park. The city of Eau Claire is exploring potential improvement at the 60 acre park located on the north east side of Eau Claire. The city's initial interest is in making the sledding hill better and safer. Longer term goals are additional hockey rinks, creating mountain bike trails, and restoring the downhill ski and snowboard operation that was suspended in 1967. Several Red Eye members have expressed an interest in helping, and it's likely that our ski club will play an active role as this project moves forward.
*** Midwest Sport & Ski Council -
The Red Eye Ski Club is affiliated with the Midwest Sport & Ski Council. This brings our members access to a number of benefits through the MSC. Click the MSC logo below for a link to their website, which includes an online version of the "Sportster".
