Larch Hills Nordic Society will be holding its annual Take Back the Hills on Saturday, Oct. 31 from 9 a.m. to noon. Interested skiers and snowshoers are asked to gather at the Larch Hills parking lot to meet with organizers to check the trails to see that they are ready for the ski season and rocks and sticks or other hazards have been removed. Please bring gloves and hand tools such as shovels, rakes, clippers or hand saws. If you bring power tools, please provide your own safety equipment. For more information, phone Blaine at 250-833-4008 or Jim at 778-489-2273.
