    FROM THE BOARD

    Things are really heating up for the coming snow season…and excitement is building among your board members. The team is working to create awesome trips (Snowshoe, Snowmass, Steamboat and Deer Valley), a winning race team, and exciting pre-season events to get you all ready. You can find more information for each of these events at charlotteskiandsnowboardclub.com. Coming up real soon are:

    • Monthly Club Meeting Monday October 14 at Brewers at Yancey in Charlotte — with special guest Dr. Scott Firczak on prepping for the coming season!
    • Club Picnic in Freedom Park Sunday October 27 — RSVP for this fun event on our website and come ready for play!
    • Warren Miller Movie. There will be two showings of Warren Miller’s Timeless at Studio Movie Grill in Charlotte November 18 and 19!
    • NEW! Jingle and Mingle Holiday Party at Brewers at Yancey  on Monday December 9th!
    • Ongoing Dryland Training School sessions most Sundays through December—keep posted for events that club members may join, and if you’re not in this strength- and flexibility program led by Tom Grayson, you’ll want to be doing your own conditioning beginning…. last month!

    We hope you all join in these events — whether volunteering, or enjoying the events, or even making suggestions on things you want for coming years. It’s all good, and we are glad to have every one of you as we work to create a great club and a fun season.

    Yours,

    THE CHARLOTTE BUZZ NEWSLETTER

    SEPTEMBER 2019


    From The Board

    Kick Off Meeting - Greetings, everyone! Looking forward to our annual kick off meeting Monday September 9th at 4001 Yancey (7pm). We hope to see every member in attendance, because we have great and exciting new things to share with you all.

    Trips - The trip packages rolled out in May have been super popular so make sure to act fast if there is a trip you are interested in joining this year. We expect most trips to be sold out by the end of September. More information in the trips section below.

    Holiday Party News - Some people on our Facebook page, some of whom are not club members, have questioned the board’s plan for this year’s Christmas party. After careful review, the board found that only a percentage of the attendees at the holiday party were actually members, and yet these parties have been very costly to the club. A decision was made this year that money could be better spent for events and activities that benefit more members throughout the year.

    That said, we invite your input, and we also ask for your understanding as your volunteer board members work very hard to build a strong club, and a strong social calendar.

     Other things we are working on:

    • The Warren Miller movie, which may move to two nights in November (dates and times coming soon)
    • More great trip information from Trips Chair Tom Grayson (read below)
    • Dryland Training program, also run by Tom (sign up now and get warmed up for the season!)
    • The 2019-20 ski and snowboard race season, with new schedule posted on our website

    We love suggestions, so reach out to me or any board member with your ideas and comments. Wishing us all a great snow season! It’s almost on us!

    Ralph Preziosi, Vice President

    From the New President
    Greetings!

    Thank you all for entrusting me with the role of president. I’m really excited at all the enthusiasm for our club and the people who have stepped up to take a turn helping out. The elected officers Ralph Preziosi (Vice President), Brian Swaney (Treasurer), David Stoner (Secretary) and I will do our best to keep everything humming along for a strong club future. Please be sure to thank new committee chairs John Gardner, Jace Gates, and Jeff and Robin Smithberger. Thank you Kevin and Dana Cuddihy (Racing), Rod Gatlin (Bylaws) and Tom Grayson (Trips). And especially thank outgoing president Morgan Mayer, longstanding trips chair (and former president) Denver Board, Membership chair, Lynn Wise, and Carol Roach, who led marketing and communications for the past six months. You can see the Committees list: https://charlotteskiandsnowboardclub.wildapricot.org/Board-&-Board-Positions

    About me? Ski racing with Charlotte since the 2015-16 season, and a resident of the area full time since fall 2017, I am eager to contribute to the club. I’m a freelance graphic designer with clients around the world (just none yet in major western ski resorts). I grew up with a father in the ski resort industry, and a mother who learned to ski late but eagerly. I feel like volunteering for the club is a bit like coming home.

    Lots of things are in the works for the coming months. Make sure to check out the "Trip News" and "Social Events" sections further down in this newsletter for more information.

    We take the summer months off for Monthly Club Meetings, so plan ahead for the next one — September 9, 2019 at Brewers at 4001 Yancey in Charlotte. See you then!

    Mary Christianson, President, 2019-20

    UPDATES ON CSSC 2019.2020 TRIPS

    4th Annual Trip to Snowshoe, WV on January 10-12, 2020: This is our only Regional Weekend Trip of the Season and we are bringing it to you with special pricing.  We will be staying at the Allegheny Springs Lodge again and are looking to have a big crowd this year.  This is a 2 night trip (Friday and Saturday) starting at $422 that includes lift tickets.  A third night is optional on January 9th.  This is an IKON Pass Resort.  See trip details and registration information on the website.  New to this trip is that you can pay by credit card!

    Aspen Snowmass Trip February 1-8, 2020: We are staying at our favorite Condos at Top of the Village (slope side) but unfortunately, they are currently on a wait list with 138 people registered.  We have 2 spaces open in rooms at the Stonebridge Inn at the 2018 contract price and we just added 5 more rooms at the 2019 price which is $138 more per person.  The Stonebridge has QQ deluxe hotel rooms, great amenities, and comes with a hot breakfast buffet each morning.  It is in the base area close to shopping and restaurants and is ski in/out. 

    This trip is capped at 168 spaces.  Club members who wish to acquire their own lodging can tag onto our group rate lift tickets which are very low for Aspen ($400 for a 5 day adult lift and $303 for a 5 day senior (65+) lift) and by paying a $25 trip registration fee.  Group Air will be available from Charlotte to Aspen and Eagle Airports starting in July.  See trip details and pricing options on the club website.

    Steamboat Trip February 29 to March 7, 2020:  This trip is 50% sold with 38 signed up and is a great value for Skiing and Riding in Prime Time!  We are staying in the Mountain Village at the Lodge in 2 and 3 bedroom condos.  Trip activities include an optional Snowmobile Tour and a day trip to Winter Park.  Ralph, Denver, and Mary are working hard planning fun mixers and parties.  This is going to be a fun trip!  Group Air will be available from Charlotte to Hayden and Denver Airports starting in July.  See trip details and pricing options on the Club Website.

    Deer Valley Trip March 29 to April 3, 2020: This is a 5 night trip that was recently added and some details are still being worked out.  I will say that the prices are very good!  We should have trip registration up soon!  We are staying at the Zermatt Utah Resort outside of Deer Valley.  We will have lift options at Deer Valley and Park City/Canyons.  Deer Valley is an IKON Pass Resort and Park City is an EPIC Pass Resort.  An optional day trip is planned to Powder Mountain. This is our first venture in a 5 night trip arriving on Sunday and departing on Friday. From looking at 2021 Resort pricing, this may be the wave of the future?

We meet this month at Brewers at 4001 Yancey in Charlotte, Monday, May 13, 2019 at 7pm. Come meet and thank the many volunteers who make this club a success, get to know other active people in the area, or just take advantage of the free snacks.

In June, July and August there are still happy hours and other events you will find on the calendar, but the more formal club meetings pause, picking up again in September 2019 in time for ski/ride season.

    2019-2020 CSSC Trips - 2019-2020 CSSC Trips rolled out for Early Bird Registration on May 1st, 2019 with $100 trip deposit holding your spot. Trip details are posted on the CSSC website. 103 (65% sold) people have signed up for Aspen/Snowmass and 24 (38% sold) people have signed up for Steamboat.

    Now is the time to start thinking about room and condo mates! All rooms are priced double occupancy with single supplement (private room) option available while spaces last. Singles share rooms that may or may not have separate beds. We try to place couples in rooms with one bed and singles in rooms with 2 beds, but typically we will have a couple of condos made up of all singles. In this case, condo mates will draw straws for rooms/beds. There will be a sleeper sofa available as a bail out option so everyone has their own bed. Now is the time to put together your own condo of friends and/or family. Most of our condos (80%) are made up by guest choice (preference). All CSSC Trips as well as Crescent trips have the same lodging policy.

    From the President
    It’s been a busy year, and we have seen lots of great stuff happening in our club — awesome trips with more people than ever attending, a successful Warren Miller movie screening, updated website and social media channels, continuing success with our race team, and fun monthly membership meetings at our new venue Brewers at 4001-A Yancey. Please read on and make sure to attend elections on March 11. See you on the slopes!

    Morgan Mayer, President

    Elections

    Election time! Our bylaws require annual election for the four board officer positions of president, vice president, treasurer and secretary. Please join us as our regular club meeting Feb. 11 for nominations (Monday, Feb. 11, 7-9 pm at Brewers at 4001-A Yancey, in Charlotte), and also make sure to be at the Special Membership Meeting March 11 to vote (Monday, March 11, 7-9 pm at the same location).

    Trip News

    The Big Sky trip departed February 2nd for a week of fun with 185 people, and lodging in five different locations from a room at the Huntley Lodge to a 4 bedroom Penthouse at the Summit. The conditions are great and snow is forecast almost every day.

    The Crested Butte trip is currently full with 41 people and three single supplements. We have one male single on the wait list. If we get three more people to sign up for the wait list, we will try to locate lodging. If you are a member of the Club and are going to be in Crested Butte Feb 23 to Mar 2, please contact us for Meet and Greet information. You can also tag onto our discount lift ticket prices for the week (need to set up by Feb 15th).

    2020 Trips

    Online trip registration begins on May 1st for Aspen Snowmass and Steamboat. The Snowshoe Trip is a manual registration that will be available starting at the May Club Meeting.

    Aspen Snowmass is one of our most popular trips and will sell out quickly. We only have 150 spots for this trip with 130 at Top of the Village Condos and 20 at the Stonebridge Inn. Trip dates are Feb 1 - 8, 2020. What can you say about Aspen? It has it all and is ranked annually as one of the Top Ski Resorts in the World.

    The Steamboat Trip is our return to March ski trips (Feb 29 to March 7)! It will also be one of our most economical trips at a very good value! We are staying at The Lodge at Steamboat — This is where the Crescent Ski Council has had lodging for their December Ski/Ride/Race Camp for the past several years. Come join us in Steamboat! It has been a long time since we have gone there as a Club.

    The Snowshoe Trip will be the 2nd weekend in January. We are cutting our base trip to two nights (Friday and Saturday) and will be staying again in the Allegheny Springs Lodge in Studio, one bdrm den plus condos, two bdrm den condos, and three bedroom condos. People who want to add an additional night can do so either on the front end or back end (Thursday or Sunday nights). However, the whole condo has to be on the same schedule and we need early booking to secure your lodging. The two night weekend format will lower the price of the trip and may work best with most people’s work schedules. We will have our party as usual along with Meet and Greets during the stay. We will be partnering with Sun and Ski Sports on this trip and they will be offering great deals and discounts, along with help in promoting this trip!

    We offer an early bird trip signup of $100 trip deposit to hold your spot on any of our trips! Your next trip payment will not be due until August 1st, and then October 1st with the trip balance due on December 1st.

    Come to our February Club Meeting for more details!

    Race Team News

    We had a great turnout last weekend at Appalachian, and took first place on Saturday! We continue to have new racers qualify, and established racers continue to improve.
