Our club now has a
devoted just to beginner skiers, and
we need volunteers who are willing
to help newcomers to the sport. This
is a win-win for everybody. By
brining in new people to the slopes,
the ski areas get more customers,
our club gets more members, and the
newcomers get their wings (their
skis or boards)!

encouraged carpooling from Sandy,

you can ride the bus from Sandy to Skibowl, Government Camp, or

The Canada Ski Safari
will not happen this year, at least not
in an organized manner as is previous years, but you are welcome to do it on your own anyway.
Ski Safari was organized annually from 2004 to 2010 to
make use of all the promotional free lift tickets to 4 Canadian
ski areas. It used to be the least expensive ski trip of
them all, with free lift tickets, and carpooling, and sharing
the cost of lodging. But recently, the list of
freebies has been getting shorter, and the deals less alluring.
Instead of completely free lift tickets to 4 Canadian ski areas,
we are now down to only 2-for-1 coupon for just 2 ski areas.
If you want to make use of the
2-for-1 lift tickets and visit Canada, contact
Emilio for more info. Also, see more info about 3
