November President's Column

22 Oct 2021 9:30 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Ski season in the U.S. is officially here as Wolf Creek opened Saturday, October 16, inching out Arapahoe Basin by one day for the bragging rights as the first resort to open. Winter has arrived (although the slopes aren’t open yet), at one of our upcoming ski destinations. The Colorado Sun reported snow in the mountains around Aspen/Snowmass on October 2

and I just had to include this picture of the snow and aspen trees from the article:

AccuWeather’s long range Ski Forecast says we should have “Excellent” conditions this winter at all four of our western destinations.  Steamboat, Snowmass, and Breckenridge are sold out, but you still have a few days left to sign up for Mt. Bachelor, Oregon.

Fellow Ski Club member Adam Seiler, of 1-On-1 Personal Training (7429 E Brainerd Rd, Chattanooga, TN 37421; (423) 704-7237; ) was the speaker at our October membership meeting. I think everyone who was there learned something to help us prepare for skiing or other activities. If you haven’t met Adam yet, those of us on the Breckenridge trip will get to know him then, if not sooner.  We will also have an informative guest speaker at our November meeting.

Save the Date – Thursday evening December 16th.  After missing last year, the Annual Christmas Party is making a comeback! More information will be sent out soon.

We have a new member to report: Glen Urey. Let’s be sure we make him feel welcome.

Stay safe everyone,
