Another season is upon us! I think I saw some yellow leaves on the trees. Its time to start thinking about the snow.
We have a few new challenges this year that the board is all working on. All your questions will be answered on this blog, SnoBiz, and Facebook/ Instagram. We are trying to make this a safe year, as we absolutely want to get out on the snow if possible.
In the meantime, our membership renewal date of September 1 is here.
To acknowledge that many of you have been financially impacted by this pandemic, we have lowered the membership price for this season to $140 for the entire year (which is lower than our usual early bird rate); and lower than our regular rate of $170.
In this year of uncertainty, we are also including a special option If by January 31st, 2021 you have not participated in any club trips (daytrips, long trips, or charter trips) you can request to have your membership deferred for the year. To make this request, you will need to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 1, 2021.
If the experience of resorts in the Southern Hemisphere are any indication, skiing and snow boarding will be very popular this coming season, and due to restricted numbers daily spots will likely sell out quickly. However, HPSC has been assured by alpine resorts that we will have access to a set number of those daily spots for our members who come on the bus and those who drive-up (drive-ups will need register and pay for their tickets through HPSC). On the cross-country side, we have not heard that resorts will be limiting daily spots, but discussions are on-going.
While this season will be a challenge, we look forward to seeing you all on the hills and trails soon.
Thanks for continuing to be part of High Park Ski Club.
See you at the zoom AGM on September 23.
