"Help wanted!"

I am still in need of person to fill the chair positions for historian.

The historian should be someone who has the space to store the club's historical artifacts and who can bring some of it to the committee fair for people to sign the roster and look through the pictures.

Please contact me at the meetings or by email if you can help out your favorite club!

Thank you so much! Erin

September 3rd is the Kick-Off for the 2015/16 Ski Season.

All trips will be represented at the September 3rd meeting. Three trips (Cortina, Italy - New Year's Eve in the Eastern Township of Quebec, Canada -- Smuggler's Notch) will be opening on September 3rd. The remaining trips will open in October.

A summary of the trips has been posted on the website. This will give you the basic information regarding the scheduled trips. The trip leaders will have more information by the time of the Kick-Off.

Please note the following:

  1. Trip prices are determined by the cost to the club for the trip. Any benefits we receive for our participation are used to offset the cost to our members. For example, sometimes we get an early contracting bonus. We apply that credit to our costs. We generally get a free room/flight/ticket for every 20 paid slots. These again are used to offset our costs and to provide recognition to the Trip Leaders for their time and work.

  2. Recognition in the form of a discounted trip price is given to the Trip Leaders. Therefore, it is not necessary to give a Trip Leader gift. Please do not ask anyone to donate to a group gift. If you would like to recognize the Trip Leader, please do so individually.

  3. For Bus trips, there is a fixed cost that must be covered regardless of the number of participants. If a trip does not have the full number of budgeted participants, adjustments may be made to the trip package to keep the trip financially viable. To avoid issues, drive-up options will not be accepted until the bus slots are completely full. Additionally, there is always a possibility that the trip could be canceled or changed. There is also a possibility that a price can be reduced if we can exceed the budgeted number of participants.

  4. Some trips have a contingency built into the price. If we see that this contingency fund is not needed, the final trip payment may be reduced.

I have tried my best to provide a variety of trip options with reasonable pricing. I have taken input from members in selecting trip locations. I hope you enjoy the 2015/16 Ski Season.

As always, I welcome your feedback at , Alpinetrips.

OC Ski Club Day Bus charge policy 11 update!

We are now going to charge all guests $20 upfront rather than $15 prepay and collect the additional $5 one-day membership on the bus. PayPal for next season will reflect this change. Also we have formalized the policy of only charging family under age 18 of member/applicants $10 to reserve a seat on the bus. It goes without saying that guests and family must have the sponsor present on the bus for these people to ride. Also I remind everyone that the Children at OC events specifies that children under age 7 are not allowed on any bus which is for safety reasons (seatbelt, car seat issues).
