Hi Fellow Skiers and Riders,

Fall is officially here, and winter is just a couple of months away. The early winter mountain forecast is predicting colder (and snowy) weather, and we may see snow in Charlotte!

Our world class Western trips are filling up, so now is the time to register as space is limited. Please review our upcoming events below and support our club sponsors. They have all provided door prizes and special deals for members. 

Our October meeting is Wednesday, Oct 11th. It’s going to be one of our best ever, so come socialize with fellow skiers and riders as we discuss the upcoming season. I hope to see you at the meeting and/or one of our fall events!

~ Tom Grayson, Club President
