Good Afternoon STARS:
What a day we had today! Beautiful blue skies and warm temperatures and the snow was soft but workable for all our Senior Ski and Snowboarders.
We had 28 Senior STARS come out for our last clinic and from all of the instructors and myself, everyone seemed to have a great time! As I was skiing around to the different groups; there was a lot of skiing and riding today, which means there has been a lot of improvement with YOU Seniors during the 11 weeks of the STARS clinics.
Not only did we have a fabulous time on the snow, but we finished it off with a fantastic luncheon! A lot of photos were taken out on the snow and during the luncheon, so don't forget to go to http://seniorprogramstars.blogspot.com/ to check them all out.
The Senior Program STARS has been lots of fun this season. We averaged about 31 Seniors each week and this was an increase of about 29% from last year. WOW!! Everyone should feel very proud of this accomplishment. You STARS are great ambassadors for Mountain High. Please keep up the good work and continue to get the word out for next season.
Don't forget your evaluation of our program.
Please email two responses to me during this next week:
(1) What is one thing that we did very well?
(2) What did not go well or something that we can improve on?
Take a minute to think about it, and please email me your thoughts.
Until next season...Have a great summer and we will....
Ski ya later!!

Good Morning STARS:
This is just a reminder for our LAST Seniors Program STARS Clinic Wednesday, March 14th at 9:00 am at the West Resort.
Please purchase your ticket and your lesson by 8:00 AM as anytime after that it has taken 20 minutes due to the long lines at the ticket window. You will be on the snow at 9:30 am SHARP!!
We will be having a THANK YOU luncheon for YOU in the Big Pines Lodge after our clinic around 12:15 PM. The cost will be $5.00 for the luncheon. I am going to ask each of you to RSVP ASAP so I can give an accurate lunch count to our Food and Beverage Department.

Cold day today but we had plenty of sunshine for the 31 Seniors that participated in the next to last clinic of the season. Yes, next Wednesday, March 14th will be our last STARS clinic for this winter season. We had 10 NEW Seniors that participated in our program today and their comments were all positive.
Next Wednesday, March 14th we will have our final clinic of the season. We will be having a luncheon after our STARS clinic around 12:15 pm. The cost for the luncheon will be $5.00. There will be no food voucher given out in the morning. I know Food and Beverage will be putting on a great spread so all I need you to do is RSVP by this Saturday morning. By Saturday I will have a good idea how many Seniors will be skiing and riding on our last day.
What a season it has been! With limited amount of natural snow, conditions were excellent all season. Snowmaking and our Groomers always kept skiing and riding conditions above the standard. They both did an outstanding job!
Attached is our group photo from today and you can see all the other photos from our clinic here on this site.
Hope to see you next Wednesday…

Good Afternoon STARS:
Just a reminder for our 10th STARS clinic of the season on Wednesday, March 7th at the WEST Resort. Don’t forget to get there early (by 8:00 am) if you need to purchase a lesson, lift ticket or rentals. If you have already registered at West for online purchases just go ahead and purchase your lesson and lift ticket online right from your own computer.
Plan to be booted up by 9:00 am and meet me in the Big Pines Lodge.
The weather has been perfect and we will have blue skies and lots of sun. Wednesday should be lots of fun! Here is a photo from this weekend and you can see the coverage is excellent.
As always, please RSVP by email so I know we will have enough instructors to meet your need.
Ski ya later,

What a beautiful day we had today at the Senior Program STARS clinic. 8 inches of new snow, crystal clear blue skies and 33 Seniors to experience the 9th clinic of the STARS season. With the 33 Seniors today and throughout the past nine weeks we have seen a total of 276 Seniors participate in our STARS program. That is an average of 30.67 Seniors each week.
In our first year we averaged 15 Seniors and in our 2nd year, 22 Seniors. We are averaging 30.67 Seniors this year, so that is an increase of 28 percent from last year.
I want to thank all the Seniors that completed the short survey today. I can see by the responses that the Senior Program STARS purchase several different Mt High products each and every time you visit Mt High. Not only are you coming to the STARS clinics, you are purchasing season passes, bringing friends, sons, daughters and grandchildren to Mt High. Your grandchildren are our next skiers and snowboarders and we THANK YOU for believing in us and making Mt High a great experience for your family and friends.
Here is our group picture from today and also all the other pictures from today's clinic.
Ski ya next Wednesday,
