February Newsletter With Upcoming Events, Trips, and Races

February 01, 2024 3:16 PM | Anonymous

We are entering our busy season with multiple Western ski trips to Colorado, New Mexico, and California while getting the details together for 2025 trips. Planning local trips has been harder because of weather, and heavy rain led to a January day trip cancelation. 

Currently, the conditions are good at local resorts, but our volunteer trip leaders are busy with Western trips. We’ll continue offering discounted lift tickets for members on Crescent Series Race weekends. 

Our next club meeting is on Monday, Feb 12th at Sugar Creek Brewery with a happy hour beforehand and yoga class afterward. These events are open to everyone, so bring a friend (or several).

Please take care and enjoy a great season on the slopes!

~ Tom Grayson, Club President

15 oz no salt added canned beans and vegetables
15 oz no sugar added canned fruit

Donate two items to boost your door prize odds with an extra ticket. Or better yet, bring four items, and you’ll receive two extra tickets!
