A Letter from the President

Dear Members,


I want to summarize what we discussed on Monday night’s Zoom meeting for those that could not join us. The meeting replaced our usual spring banquet. We got some club business accomplished and discussed next years trips.

   

We offered our thanks to the trip leaders who ran trips this year: Salli Bruell for the Park City trip; Holly Tarleton and Faith Dunn for the Sun Valley trip, Mike Walsh and Brendan Pickett for the Big Sky fly trip. John Terwilliger and Mark Bergeron ran 2 overnight trips to Loon and Faith Dunn ran the Sugarloaf trip. 


We gave out two club awards. The Volunteer of the Year Award went to Jerry Garnick. Jerry is the founding member of our club and generously acts as the club attorney. For 43 years Jerry has helped the club be the success it is. The Broken Wing Award which acknowledges the member who, unfortunately, was hurt skiing with the club this year goes to a new member, Katherine Winkler. We wish Katherine well and a speedy recovery.

 

Salli Bruell, our membership chair, discussed that the board voted to extend the memberships of folks that paid for a 2020-21 membership but did not use it. Unused 2020-21 memberships will be renewed automatically.  Please check that your membership is in order on line after June 1st. Any questions can be sent to Salli at  sallijo123@gmail.com.  

 

Holly Tarleton, travel chair, announced the 4 fly trips being planned for next year:


Copper Mountain 1/23-1/30

Crested Butte 2/12-2/19

Banff/Lake Louise 3/5-3/12

Red Mountain 3/19-3/26


These trips are still being finalized but we think the dates are good. More information will be forthcoming after contracts have been signed. Watch for e-mails and the check the club website for pricing and detailed information, probably in late June / early July. Online registration for the fly trips will open at 7AM Monday, August 2nd. We encourage anyone who wants to go on a fly trip to get on the wait list right away if a trip fills up quickly. We make every effort to expand trips and changes happen all the time.


In closing we want to thank our members for hanging in with us during this challenging year. 2022 will be better and will be more fun. Keep an eye on the web site for possible group activities over the summer. Talk to your friends about the club, it's a great group of people. Be safe, stay well and enjoy your summer.


I can't wait till it snows again,


Bob Jensen, President

March Update

A letter from Bob,

It has been a while since I communicated with you during this difficult year. I’m feeling cautiously optimistic about the end of the pandemic with the number of new cases falling, the vaccine rate rising, and our continued adherence to safety protocols. I hope you are well and keeping safe. 

Ski conditions have been quite good and a bunch of club members have taken advantage of fly trips like Park City, Sun Valley and Big Sky. We had 2 overnight U-drive trips to Loon with accommodations at the Indian Head resort.  The hotel did a nice job of keeping us safe and Loon was very well run. The Sugarloaf week long trip was a success. Off season events are still difficult to organize so we will most likely not have a spring banquet this year.

We need a volunteer to be the social chairperson. That person helps coordinate our general meetings, Christmas party, spring banquet, and runs our CCSC clothing program. They also make suggestions on activities they think the members might enjoy. If you have an interest or want more details, e-mail me at bobjensen1@yahoo,com

Joan Lyons suggested we offer U-Drive day trips to Loon every Wednesday in March, 3/3, 3/10, 3/17, and 3/24.  We are going to Loon because it is the only mountain that will provide us with discount lift tickets. This is a great way to ski with friends and get a $45 lift ticket. Sign up on the website and pick up your ticket from the trip leader outside the Governor’s lodge before the lifts open. Please give this a try so we can see your smiling faces. A member must sign up but they can also sign up non member friends or children for $45 each, the non-member fee has been waved for these day trips. We need about 10 or more skiers to make the trips work, so please sign up.

For those of you who did pay your membership but decided not to use it this season, we will extend your membership through next year. More on this after our last trip.

As always, the board welcomes any comments or suggestions on what we can do to make this great club even better. Thank you for you help and please stay safe.

Bob Jensen for the Cape Cod Ski Club

A Message from the President

Dear Cape Cod Ski Club member

Well, the year started out so well.

A couple of the fly trips selling out in minutes after opening, the 3 fly trips had great memories and the overnight/day trips did well despite not having the greatest snow in New England this year.

The world is upside down right now. Coronavirus has totally disrupted our daily routines. Tom Brady wants to play elsewhere this year. We will get through all of this change and all of these challenges.

As you may have followed, we have had to cancel the 3/18 day trip to Sunday River, the 3/25 thank you trip to Wildcat, and the final overnight to Jay Peak. Pat Eggers and Mark Bergeron did a fantastic job of rescheduling the Park City fly trip to January 2021 so we did not all lose our money. By acting so promptly, we also got ahead of everyone else who will be dealing with canceled and rescheduled plans.

Nobody knows what the next few months will hold but we hope you stay strong and safe and protect those around you.

The only other event we have scheduled, the 4/25 spring banquet is still being considered. Jeff Vivian has spoken to the West Dennis Yacht Club and the John's (band) and we are leaving this event open to sign ups. If you want to sign up, do not pay, just click "invoice me." That way we get an idea of who might consider going without asking for your money until we make a final decision (or it is made for us).

Thank you all for a great year for the club and all members. We are a great group and we will continue to have fun together.

Let me know if there is anything we can do for you.

Bob Jensen for the Board of Directors

Bretton Woods, Loon, Waterville Valley

The final overnight trip for 2020 is in the books. 22 members had a fantastic time at Bretton Woods, Loon Mountain, and the Indian Head Resort. Mother nature had other ideas about Friday at Waterville Valley, but everyone took it in stride. Here is a group shot of our trip leader, Joan, along with some other members at the top of South Mountain at Loon.

2019 CCSC Holiday Party!

The 2019 CCSC Holiday Party was held on December 16th at the DoubleTree Resort in Hyannis. We want to thank the DoubleTree for another wonderful event: pizza, passed appetizers, cheese and crackers, and of course, the bar was hopping!

Jay Peak

The overnight U-Drive trip to Jay Peak when well. We had three and a half days of great skiing with fresh snow and NO lift lines. All trails were open, some of our group enjoyed the glades that Jay is known for. The bump runs had good cover and softened up in the afternoon which made for great spring skiing. The welcome party provided a good opportunity for socializing, networking, telling jokes and skiing stories (lies) followed by a well done group dinner at Alice's Table. 


Mount Bachelor

The last fly trip of the season was to the high desert of Oregon and Mount Bachelor. If you've never been here, make it a point to go! It's one of the best kept secrets around, and the mountain, town, and general fun vibe is one of a kind! Enjoy the photos from the trip below.


Sugarloaf Week in the books!

Wind, snow, cold, bluebird days, and incredible skiing. Sugarloaf had it all this year. Enjoy the photos below from Sugarloaf Week!


Jackson Hole!

Wall-to-wall powder greeted the CCSC for their week in Jackson Hole.

Enjoy the photos below of the Jackson Hole, Wyoming trip!


Steamboat!

The first CCSC fly trip of 2019 is in the books! 

Enjoy the photos below of the Steamboat, Colorado trip.

Okemo Dinner at the Mansion

Another sold out trip is in the books! Two busses transported more than 100 CCSC members to Okemo last week. Mother Nature made the trip interesting, but everyone was rewarded with a powder day at Okemo!

Enjoy the photos below of dinner at the Mansion courtesy of Pat Burnham.

So Happy Together, 2018 CCSC Holiday Party!

Another CCSC Holiday Party is in the books. With close to 100 people, it was one of the best attended events of the year. Thanks go out to the DoubleTree for helping us put on another successful event. From the appetizers to the pizza to the dessert, everything was first rate. We were lucky to have the Mike Dumas Band for the evening, and they pulled out all the stops. Several boxes of food donations were collected for local food pantries, the raffle was a big success, and Santa himself was in the house with his bag of gifts!

Laura Wood was the winner of the Super Raffle—one night and 2 days at Loon Mt. compliments of Rodgers Ski and Sport in Lincoln NH!

Please enjoy the photos and videos below. We wish you all Happy Holidays and a Snowy New Year!
