 To GGRSC members and friends: 

Join the GGRSC skiers signed up for a day of skiing at Otsego Ski Club in Gaylord on Sunday January 1, 2023 

Members and guests are welcome.  Otsego Ski Club has lots of new natural snow but is busy making snow each day. The resort thinks they will have 4 of the 5 lifts open and most of their runs will be open.. They will be less busy than many of the ski resorts on a holiday weekend as they are not as well known due to it being a private ski area until a couple years ago. 

Those of you coming from GR and beyond are meeting at Post Road ( Drive) NE Carpool lot and 131 expressway at 6:30 AM for our journey north.  

Some of you are staying in Cadillac at the Evergreen so you would be traveling about an hour to Gaylord..  

Otsego Ski Resort hours are 9:00 AM to 8:30 PM on this Holiday Sunday.  You can also just meet us up at the resort if you choose.  Please indicate where you are meeting on your ski club registration.  You can register online under the January 1  park and ride event. 

Non members can also register for this trip on our website.

Sign up on the website if interested in going on the  trip, or call Michigan Park and Ride Trip Leader :  Shirley Nevins   H  616-361-8390      C  616-340-8586    or email her:
