Holiday Season Letter

Hello Big White Ski Club Members, Sponsors and Alumni!

On behalf of the Big White Ski Club Executive team - I’d like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season! Our ski season is off to a great start with super snow conditions. We have enjoyed firm snow for early training and now we are getting blasted with powder snow for the winter school break!

Although the Covid restrictions have created some challenges for our startup this season - I think you will all agree we are lucky to be skiing with few impediments. Just today, Ontario announced a complete Covid lockdown which includes the closure of all the ski hills; yes, we are fortunate to be here in British Columbia!

It is my hope that our province will continue to fare well with controlling Covid-19. I’m keeping fingers crossed that Dr Henry will allow us to go back to Phase 3 of our Covid restrictions. An easing of restrictions in 2021 could allow BC Alpine to reschedule some races for all age groups. Our club will communicate any race schedule changes as soon as we are updated from BC Alpine. So let's continue to be the group on the hill who leads by example, with those great BWSC Buffs or other face coverings!

On a brighter note, our ski club has enjoyed a strong enrolment for 2020/21. As well, we are happy to report that the BWSC has welcomed many new alumni ski coaches this year. Many of these coaches are ex-racers who are eager to share their passion for skiing with your family. 

As well, many of our ski club members have been using the Skytech Ski Simulator since September. Our simulator coach, Wade Christie, would love to put your athlete (U12 or older) through some personal training on the ski simulator during the weekdays in the New Year. Here’s the link to book: (https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/2020-simulator-training-tickets-125187213325?ref=eios). 

For the current athletes, take the time to enjoy the training and make the best of the end of 2020. To the dedicated parents, alumni and sponsors, we hope we can host some kind of social event some time in 2021 and gather once again.

Cheers,

Dave Willoughby

Recycle Safely and DONATE at the Same Time

By Big White Ski Club 09/25/2020, 8:30am PDT

Return It To Support BWSC

Hello BWSC Families, Alumni and Supporters,

As businesses everywhere are limiting their staff, limiting hours or even changing the style of their business or maybe even closing their doors, we hope this message finds all of you safe and healthy in this challenging time.

As many people are abiding by  “social distancing”, we are suggesting a simplified way to drop off your empties without having to stand in the Depot and sort those empties. 

The club has created a Return-It Account. With this program, you can donate your refundable recycling in a SAFE way by bagging your items at HOME and dropping them off at the Columbia Bottle Depot. 
 

How it works:

  1. Put your containers in clear (or clear blue) plastic bags, no sorting needed!
  2. Go to the Express depot (on Kent Road in Kelowna) print your labels at the kiosk by using our club number 250-718-7404 to log in, one per bag.
  3. Place a label on each of your bags and leave them in the bag drop area.

 

The Depot staff will sort your containers and credit the BWSC Express account with your refund/donation 
within 5-10 business days.

We THANK YOU for supporting the Big White Ski Club, as these donations will help in our efforts to keep costs down for the 2020/2021 SKI SEASON!
