Final STARS Clinic for the 2012 Season

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 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!!

STARS Clinic 3/7/12

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…

Ski ya later,
