Auburn Ski Club will begin an 85th season with an open house at its Donner Summit Training Center 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 26 at Boreal Mt. Resort.

The public and returning members are invited to attend and learn about the season’s programs. Enrollment for the upcoming winter sports season is underway now at

Programs start as young as age four in the Super Sliders cross country program and age six in the Cisco Kids downhill skiing programs. Season-long Junior teams are offered in snowboarding, biathlon and alpine gate training for the serious racers.

“We often refer to our programs as the ‘gift of skiing’ for good reason because they start youth and families off on a lifetime of enjoyment in the mountains,” said Bev Mann, supervisor of the Cisco Kids and Boreal Bombers programs.

For intermediate skiers ages 10-15, there is the All Mt. Devo team that explores the mountain, terrain parks and builds skiing skills. Cross Country skiers ages 9-18 join the Sonics team or the Devo/Comp team for fitness and training for competitions. The goal of all the training center programs is to develop a lifelong love of winter sports for the whole family.

The ASC Training Center and programs are open to everyone. Throughout the season, clinics and activities provide winter fun for the whole family at the Training Center facility. At the Training Center ASC grooms 20K of Cross Country ski trails open to members and the public, Wednesday–Sunday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:40 p.m.

For information about programs and activities, or cross country skiing conditions visit or call 530-426-3313.
