Oak Park Lodge "Open House" Weekends for Members

Take advantage of a new membership benefit with one of our
free "open house" weekends at our lodge

July 26 - 28, 2019 
August 30th - September 1, 2019 Labor Day Weekend
October - TBD
As our Four Winds Ski, Ride, and Socialize Club looks for ways to add benefits for our members, we'd like to announce a new membership benefit. 

As some of you know, our club has a 10 Bedroom Lodge in Boyne Falls, Michigan. This lodge is close to a number of nice areas in northern Michigan, including Boyne Mountain (5 min), Petoskey (20 min), Mackinaw Island (60 min), Charlevoix (35 min), and Traverse City (70 min). These areas offer lots of activities in the summer/fall (in addition to the skiing/riding in the winter of course), from golfing and biking to wine tastings, festivals, sight-seeing opportunities, casinos, and much more

We are announcing three "Open House" weekends, where club members (you either need to already be a paid member for 2018-2019, or you can sign up for a 2019-2020 membership now, which is effective immediately) can sign up to go to the lodge on these weekends basically for free (there is a nominal, non-refundable fee of $10 per person which includes continental breakfast for both mornings). You may also bring up to 4 guests as well (they are charged $20/guest which includes continental breakfast food both days).  

For complete information, please click here>>> 
Sign up today, space is limited.

CMSC Trip Reviews
Each year the CMSC runs three trips just for CMSC club members. The Europe Trip, Chicago Week and Spring Fling. Each trip visits a different ski destination each year - sometimes we'll return to a destination that was especially wonderful.

If you have any questions or ideas to make our club better, please contact one of our Elected Four Winds Board Members or Committee Representatives.
