Here Comes The 2017-2018 Ski Season!

Another exciting ski year has begun at Friends of Leo J. Martin Skiing (FOLJMS) thanks to the commendable work of the DCR and Charles River Recreation, which is continuing to provide grooming and snowmaking operations in 2017-18.

Sunday, November 12 saw many Friends at the Leo J. Martin, showing their support and appreciation for our wonderful ski facility by taking up rakes, gloves, and tarps to clear the course of leaves. Under the leadership of Jim Ellis, dozens of students worked hard to help transition the golf course into our beloved ski facility. Thank you volunteers!
