January President's Letter

Welcome to everyone this winter. Glad to hear everyone got back from the Crescent Ski Council trip to Steamboat with nobody hurt.   But I did hear mother nature threw snow at them on the day they were suppose to leave, causing some delay. 

Snowmass is coming up in a few days, and we all are excited.   Snow conditions are showing a lot of packed powder and 16 of 22 lifts open as I write this.  So, 90 percent of the mountain is open, with more snow to come. 

We would like to thank everyone who came out to our Christmas party at our new location.   It seemed to go over very well for everyone.   Thanks to all who brought desserts.   

At our next general meeting, we are having our buy / sell / swap ski gear event on Jan. 7.  Be sure to RSVP for the meal.

In other ski news, it was announced this week that Uber is extending its “Uber Ski” program to a number of new locations after having successfully piloted the project in select U.S. cities in previous years. Now, the program is being introduced in a total of 23 locations across the U.S., with both mountain locations and big name cities located hours away getting the green light. But what exactly is “Uber Ski”? Well, it’s simple. Uber users looking for a ride will open the app as usual, and select the Uber Ski option. In doing so, the rider will be guaranteed transportation by a spacious vehicle equipped with 4-wheel drive, and most importantly, either a roof rack or a truck bed for ski equipment. The fee for the service is reasonable as well, as it’ll cost riders just $8.00 in addition to their standard trip fare. 

Thanks and Happy New Year to all,

Mike
