Great Snow, Great People!
Blizzard prides itself on its membership and the people who run the program. Normally everything runs smoothly and unfailingly. Over the past couple of weeks we have been plagued with challenges, and for that I sincerely apologize. The latest gaff was the website being shut down. A simple misunderstanding caused that, but we are back up and running and we thank you for your patience.
February 15th we will be holding the Fun Races. A member favorite event where we hold races with obstacles, walking up hill, running through hoops or just doing silly stuff all while skiing or snowboarding along a pre-determined course.
February 22nd we will hold the timed Slalom Races. Also available for both skiers and snowboarders of every age and ability, we create a modified slalom course to accommodate even our novice participants.
There are many winning categories and we have prizes (trophies and medals) for the winners.
The permission forms for the Granite Peak trip have been mailed and reservations to participate in that overnight trip are on a first come first served basis.
Still having challenges with skis; skis that are marked, no less. Please ensure you have your OWN skis before you leave Lincoln Park at the end of the day! And place your ID tag in your boots so you remember to bring it each time.
There are quite a number of new members and new faces. We are happy to introduce members of similar abilities and ages to each other to form new friendships. We encourage skiing and boarding with others and we are all accepting of each other as new friends.
We have Zero Tolerance for disrespectful or inappropriate behavior on a bus or at the Mountain towards fellow members, supervisors or others. Our goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment in which everyone can build a lifetime love of snowsports!
