President’s Message – The last trips!

Ontario weather once again gave us a surprise!  After having been resigned to an early end of the season, a spring snowstorm surprised us. As those who were able to get out to the slopes over the last couple of weeks can attest, the skiing was fairly good for what we have faced this past season. However, it is now the time to say goodbye until next season.

I am very happy for those of our cross-country community who were on the Quebec City combo ski around trip. After the very tough season in Ontario, they were rewarded with fantastic conditions in Quebec City. 

Downhill members were also treated with great conditions on the last overnight trips to Quebec City, Tremblant and currently Charlevoix this week. 

This is an important time for the club in preparation for next year’s big 75th Anniversary season. One of these is our Ikon Pass Group sales program. All of the details are now online here.

On a personal note, I have really enjoyed getting back on the slopes, being on day trips, having a beer with other members at the end of the day and getting to know and talk with new and longer time members. On one day trip this year, as I was getting ready to go out, many members were coming up to me and asking about various club topics. Someone asked me if that was what I was there for, just to answer questions. My response was that, in a way, yes, that was my job – I love talking with members about the club and learning about their issues and concerns, as well as hearing about the positives.
