    "Testimonials"

    Click Here!!!

    Testimonials are needed for the new OC web site!

    "Just a couple sentences would be great!"

    Email webmaster@ocskiclub.org to let us know why you joined the club and what you love about it.

    We are looking for members who have been in the club for a long time, new members, and volleyball players.

    I just wanted to thank the club and all the committee members and chairs who graciously hosted the Committee Fair this year.   I was lucky enough to win a two day ski and stay package to Bolton Valley, Vermont.

    It was such a treat, and such a great opportunity to ski an area I had not skied before.  Thanks everyone for such hard work in running the club and obtaining such awesome gifts for the Committee Fair.

    Bolton Valley is such a quiet place through the week, with a nice little restaurant/bar.  You have the mountain to yourself.  It is a place worth checking out if you have not been there.  Some awesome glades on top too for those who like that!
