Message from the President!
Dear Big White Ski Club Families,
It’s that time of the year already… children are back to school, fall yard cleanup has begun then there are two more things that really make me think skiing Michael J promoting the Early Bird Season pass sale and my first trip to Fresh Air for something not bike related.
We look forward to a another great season and are very excited to build on the momentum we have been seeing over the past two years; our U12 and U14 groups are growing which bodes well for the future of the club. We are exploring and working towards developing a Ski Cross component to our program and will be working as hard as we can to make it happen.
Quick reminder that Dry Land training kicks off the week of Monday September 11th, if you have any questions regarding the dry land program please feel free to reach out to Coach Trevor for details. I fully recommend if at all possible, you try and have your athlete join for as many sessions as possible as the basic movements and exercises will help your child as the season progresses.
The Ski Swap is fast approaching, we have had several organizational meetings over the past few weeks and I am pleased to say things are looking good. You will be receiving some information from the club regarding volunteer positions, requirements, how to sign up, etc… Please sign up as early as possible to ensure you volunteer for a job you will enjoy doing.
Folks, our club is built on volunteers giving their time and last year was a true testament to just how strong of a club we have as we hosted 4 races, which is a huge demand on any club and their “human capital”. We had wonderful reviews from each event and folks from other mountains fully complimented us on how well organized the races were and how helpful all of our volunteers were. A BIG pat on the back to everyone who contributed!!
Thanks to all current and past members of our 2016/17 Executive, because of the tireless work and effort you have put into the club, we’ve had many successes and are well regarded in the ski community.
I Iook forward to seeing all of you at the Ski Swap or before.
If you have a willingness to join our volunteer pool or have ideas that will be beneficial to the club please do not hesitate to reach out to myself or any other member of our Executive.
Big White Ski Club
