For those who did not make the first planning meeting, we are gonna host another get together. Check out the email that went out to those who attended the first meeting...... It is post Thanksgiving. The lifts have already spun. The snow pack is rebuilding. So why not talk about the season… Updates: We met with the new club president, Matt Jeffries!!! The conversation led us to the thought that a BC ski committee, made up of the interested and core folks, is key to keeping awesome trips, educational activities, and simple meet-ups flowing through the season and into summer. We are going to work to identify those folks at the next planning meeting, so if you have an interest or wanna know more, join us on the 10th. We discussed the thought of group pairings to keep the ski season alive, like the possibility of doing some volcano skiing through the summer months and possibly collaborating with the climbing committee to keep us safe(er) and informed about crevasse rescue. As an aside, Landon and I a trip down to Mt. Adams. It was blue bird and corn snow all the way. Who knows who you will meet on a trip outside your normal group………? Upcoming: December 10 @ 6:00pm - 2nd planning meeting - location TBD (possibly the library so we can all hear each other this time) - RSVP by email and I will get the location dialed.
