Historic Photos from 1959

We recently received an email with historical photographs from 1959 :

Pls find attached 5 old photos (c. 1959-60) of MMSC surroundings. I
found them while going through my deceased father?s belongings. My
mother and father lived approx. 1 yr in Deep River, while he was
working as a nuclear engineer at the Chalk River Laboratories (as part
of a Swedish – Canadian bilateral collaboration). I hope you may find
them of interest and consider posting them in your photo gallery. My
father, Erik Sjoholm, is just beneath the MMSC sign in pic #1.

Annual Pat Harvey Fun Day Scheduled for March 2nd

Pat Harvey Fun Day is the biggest event held at MMSC and by far the most FUN!

This year is no different as we honour the memory of Pat Harvey by doing what she loved… skiing and having fun!  We have planned PHFD for March 2nd this year and as always hope for snowy slopes and sunny skies.  We invite the whole community of Deep River and surrounding areas to come out and enjoy a fun day at our club.  Everyone is welcome from Noon – 8pm when we end with our traditional torch light ski on the darkened slopes (see a photo on the home page slider!).

Final UOVSZ Race to be held at Mount Martin – Sunday Feb 10th

The season began in Deep River and now it will end in Deep River!

Due to poor snow conditions at Madawaska in Barry’s Bay and Pembroke Ski and Snowboard Club the final race has been moved to Deep River this Sunday.  This is a great opportunity for the club to cheer on the racers on their home hill.  It is a great opportunity for the club to host another race and bring in racers and families from neighbouring hills.  There is snow in the forecast and hopefully another win for the Nancy Greene team!  The team has won 2 out of 3 races this season and it would be wonderful to end the season on a high note.

Practice will be held Saturday at 1:30pm as usual.  The race is scheduled for a 10:00am start on Sunday.  All racers to be there for registration and course inspection by 9:00am.  Tell your friends and tell your family… show your spirit for our racers and our club!!

See you at the race!


Hill Conditions and Hours for Feb 1st – PD Day

The rain on Wednesday has made for poor conditions at Mount Martin this week, despite all that snow we received earlier in the week!  As of Thursday night the hill is closed due to slushy conditions at the bottom of the hill by the lift.  The dropping temperatures overnight will hopefully freeze the slush and allow Ken to groom it in the morning.  If conditions at the bottom of the hill improve and can be groomed Ken will update the SNOWPHONE with the information by 10:00am Friday.  If the hill is open… it will be open for the PD Day!

Fingers crossed…

In other news the MMSC Race Teams will be competing at Mt. Molson in Petawawa tomorrow (Friday) night at 7:00pm.  We have had confirmation that their hill will be open and the race will go ahead as scheduled.  Let’s hope for another MMSC victory and go for an undefeated season!!

Thanks for your patience!
