Welcome to all our guests and members this winter of 2019. The weather out west has been a skier's dream. Just today, as I write this, Park City received over 15 inches of fresh snow and Telluride also has gotten 8 inches or more a day for the last several days. From what I have read, Colorado will continue receive more snow. Now the North Carolina mountains have rebounded from the warm spell we had and have great conditions. Good luck to all our race team members heading to Appalachian.
I had an interesting read in the "Ski Essential Chairlift Chat." Forbes covers the growing power of women in skiing. The women of the FIS World Cup have out-earned the men for the last two years. It also points out the rise of women to position of power in the ski industry. And, the number of women who ski backcountry is increasing more than men. It's safe to say that leadership roles in the Crescent Council and our club by women are on the rise, and I applaud you for that! I look forward to working with everyone in our club to provide activities and encourage everyone to participate through volunteering or seeking an elected position. Together we win!
