Trips
The Snowshoe Trip is this weekend (January 11, 2019) with great conditions expected -- snowing all weekend! We will party with the Subaru Winter Fest!

The Big Sky Trip departs on February 2nd with 182 people registered. We still have 12 people on the wait list but time is running out. No one has canceled a space in over 3 months with everyone is very excited to go. We sold this trip out 3 times and went from a trip cap of 130 to 182.  We are scattered all over the mountain in 5 different lodging locations. It is going to be a blast. 3 of our wait list folks were able to get on with the Winston Salem Ski Club that is going the same weekend.   

We have a female single space available on the Crested Butte Trip (Feb 23 to Mar 2). It is with a great condo and it is a separate bed (no sharing). Roommate is another female single. Contact Tom Grayson if interested: tom@tomgrayson.com

Our 2020 ski trips are to Aspen Snowmass (Feb 1-8, 2020) with a cap of 150 and to Steamboat (Feb 29 to Mar 7, 2020) with a cap of 60. We can’t add space to the Aspen Trip. The Aspen Snowmass Trip will sell out before September. If you are interested in going with us to Aspen, the Early Bird Registration starts May 1st for $100 trip deposit. 

The Trip Committee wishes you a great New Year and powder turns for everyone!  Ski and ride safe and we hope to see you on one of our next year trips!

Thanks, Tom, tom@tomegrayson.com 

Race Team
The racing season has completed two of its six race weekends and Charlotte is moving up in the standings. First year racers that qualified at the first race helped the team with wins and top finishes — Congrats!

So far this year, 10 club members have joined the race team. Our next race is January 26-27 at Appalachian ski resort, near Blowing Rock, NC. The club has a special housing rate in Blowing Rock, so is this the time you want to run your first gates and give racing a try? After the race on Saturday we’ll be meeting at Blowing Rock Brewery for beers and dinner. Reach out to Charlotteracedirector@gmail.com for more information.

For more information, visit the racing page.

Social
Happy Hour at Burtons Grill and Bar, at Park Road Shopping Center, Friday, February 1st 6:30. Look for us at the bar.
