June President's Letter

21 May 2019 11:46 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Hello to everyone who enjoys the lifestyles and adventures of the Chattanooga Ski Club, and to anyone who is thinking of joining us in the future   As I write this, the weatherman says we are heading into the 90 plus degree weather for the next few days. I sure miss those nice crisp days of winter that just flew by.  Good news is that we have plenty of good trips to get back to those places in a few months.  We just have to endure the Tennessee Valley summer weather, but that includes having the lake party coming up in July.  See our website for details, and be sure to register.  

Our next meeting is June 4, and to spread the wealth, so to speak, we need some people to show up around 5 p.m. and help set the tables up. Any help would be appreciated. Another improvement is registering and paying online so Bob does not have to work so hard.    

I found this bit of ski news, "One of the many ways that industry players are attempting to counter climate change is by utilizing cloud seeding. When we first reported on the concept a few years ago, we shared a story regarding two meteorologist-snowboard “bums” who were developing the technique with an eye towards increasing snowfall at ski resorts. This week, we check back in on the concept as Denver Channel 7 News has released a report covering the growth of cloud seeding in Colorado. In the report, a number of cloud seeding proponents are interviewed who see the technique as a great way to encourage more precipitation in the area."

I say, great, let's hope Snowmass will have plenty of snow this coming season!  See you at the meeting!
