What’s New This Year for the Cross Country Ski Trails at Hanson Hills

Hanson Hills Cross Country SkiingWe are pleased to announce a few exciting changes to our Nordic Operations for the 2017-18 Season.

1.CLASSIC ONLY- We have added 5 kilometers to our Wilderness Trail making it a looped classic only adventure trail. With fun section names including Wanderlust, PB&J, Sunset Ridge and the soon to be famous Buck Snort!

2. SHORTCUT – We have opened a Service trail that could serve as a shortcut between the Red and the Green Trail to help our groomer/ski patrollers easily navigate trails without having to ride the whole system.

3. IN MEMORY OF –There will be a newer waxing bench added to our main lodge, the bench was donated from Michael Seaman’s Trust, this was his personal bench, that he prepped many ski’s on! We are honored to have this in memory of Mike and we hope you remember his athletic spirit as you prep your skis! We will also have envelopes for Mike’s Scholarship fund available in the lodge for all those who wish to donate!

4. GROOMER LOVE- We are adding an additional Bear Cat Groomer Special to our grooming fleet!

5. GOING THE DISTANCE-
You will notice on our redesigned maps, point to point distances between colors!! Look for a new Trail Head (Coming Soon) signboard as well!

Hanson Hills

We are sad to announce that a team member has passed away over the weekend. William “BILL” Bonkowski passed away from a brief battle with cancer. Bill envisioned and developed the Hanson Hills Snowsports School and served as the Director for the past 11 years. Bill shared his passion for Skiing, Rock n Roll, and hunting to all that came in contact with him. Bill was a great mentor and helped many young skiers and adults to fall in love with the sport of skiing. We kindly ask for you to keep Bill’s family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
Rest in Peace my friend and enjoy your Endless Winter!

RIP Bill. I’m so thankful the the time I was able to spend as coworkers inside the rental shop. I’ll cherish those moments forever 🤘❤️

This news is heartbreaking. Thank you for everything Bill Bonkowski.

I’ve known Bill for decades. I followed his physical battles and thought he was on the upswing. I’m so sorry to hear this. What a stand up guy. Only the good die young and that is certainly the case here. I know there is only powder in heaven so enjoy Bill.

So sad. Was such a nice man. Condolences to his family

I'm in shock. He had been through so much with his health and the deaths of his parents. RIP Bill 💔

So sad to hear this. He gave me my first job at 15 years old and helped improve my skiing immensely. 😢
