Grand Traverse Ski Club


The Hickory Hills Ski Patrol received a gracious donation of a 1996 Artic Cat Pantera. The near perfect condition snowmobile was donated by Jim Sorbie from Empire Michigan and comes a critical time for the ski patrol. The Ski Patrol at Hickory Hills is scheduled to begin services this Friday, December 20th, and as a volunteer run organization the new used snowmobile will help the team to maintain safe trails from front to back.

Thanks Jim Sorbie for your generous donation!
