Chapter 431’s annual Groundhog Chili Ski Fly-In on February 5, 2011 was one of our best yet. A blizzard dropped over a foot of new snow just days before the event and while it proved a challenge to dig out the driveway, parking areas and the chapter building in time, it provided a perfect base for ski planes.
Nearly 25 planes flew in and many dozens of folks drove in to make for a successful event. Lots of Cubs, Champs and taildragger Cessna’s, plus many others sporting many varieties of skis put on a good show for those of us suffering through a winter of little to no flying.
