PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE:

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all are recovered from the hustle and bustle of the holidays and

are ready to get back to business – SKI business, that is!

There has been a record amount of snowfall out west, making for great conditions, and the Crested

Butte and Snowshoe ski trips are less than a week away. As this is being written, snow is falling at

Crested Butte, with over a foot of snow expected by Tuesday, over a 37 inch base. Then partly sunny

through the rest of the week into the weekend, with snow expected again Monday or Tuesday, Jan. 14-

15, average temps a high of 30. At Snowshoe, there are machine groomed snow conditions with a base

of 36 inches, average temps the next week varies, but in general in the 30s.

And don’t forget the Big Sky trip next month! Lots of snow there with great skiing conditions.

If you didn’t attend the Holiday party last month, you missed a great time. We had a record turnout this

year with 55 attendees! The food was excellent and everyone enjoyed the festivities, including the

Grinch Exchange. The Bubble Gun and Vermont Maple syrup were among the most popular stolen

items. See pictures of the party on our Facebook page.

We need your commitments and deposit for the CRESCENT SKI COUNCIL SPRING CONFERENCE April 25-

28 at Kingston Plantation, ideally at the Jan. 8 meeting, but no later than Jan. 25. For further 

information, see CRESCENT SKI COUNCIL SPRING CONFERENCE below.

The Taste of Wilmington and our monthly Happy Hour are resuming this month. The Taste of

Wilmington will be held at the Hops Supply Co. Wed., Jan. 16. See UPCOMING CFSOC EVENTS &

OUTINGS below for details. The monthly Happy Hour will be held Fri., Jan. 25, venue to be determined.

Finally, it’s time to start planning SPRING activities. Golfing, tennis, kayaking, hiking, biking, stand up

paddle, any others? We are looking for organizers to plan and host an event. If you are interested,

please let me know.
