Well it is time again to get our Senior Program STARS going for 2014!! We will begin the Senior Program on January 8, 2014. We will determine by January 3rd if we are at the East or West Resort. Mother nature and our snowmakers have given us a great start on our ski and snowboard season. We have lots of snow to have a great time! If you have any questions about the program, please contact me.

So for 2014 we would like to officially "Welcome" you to the Mountain High Seniors Ski/Snowboard program (STARS). Last year we averaged 54 STARS each week. Looking forwarding in adding many NEW Seniors this season.

Remember we have online registration process. This way you will never have to get in another line again to purchase your lesson or lift ticket.

But YOU MUST FIRST GO TO THE VIP WINDOW AT THE  RESORT to begin the process. After you have shown your ID you will be given an Express Pass ($5.00 charge) to be used at the next clinics. After this initial set up at the ticket window you will be able to purchase your lesson, lift ticket and rentals from your own computer at home. For more information on our online program, please paste this url in your browser.

All seniors who have an express card already & were previously registered DO NOT NEED TO COME TO A TICKET WINDOW. You can purchase the first lesson online. You do not need to buy another express card.

Just remember our program offerings are every Wednesday at 9:00 am at Mountain High beginning on January 8, 2014. We will begin with introductory comments, an indoor clinic and then a 2-½ hour clinic from 9:30-12:00 pm. Safety and fun is the key, with the morning being the best time to meet.

Please respond to this email if you will be making a reservation for January 8th

Just a reminder:

Cost: Lesson $25. Equipment rental $15 (New shaped skis), and under age 70 lift ticket - $10 (free age 70 and over).

Hope to see all of you on the 8th of January!!

Mt High Today!!

Just came back from the Mt High and the snow is terrific! Mt High is making snow on all the runs we use in the Senior STARS Program. There were no crowds too, so it makes it easy to get some early season runs in and getting those legs back in ski shape. We are expecting 3-6 inches of new snow tonight and tomorrow so if you decide on coming up make sure your dress for it, as it was 20 degrees when I was out on the snow this morning! Hope to see all of you on January 8, 2014 on our First STARS Clinic

STARS 3/27/13

Our last Senior STARS Clinic was a great time for all. We had 38 Seniors take part in our 12th Clinic of the Season. Even though the snow was not the BEST we had a great time especially at the luncheon. There were 55-60 of us celebrating a fabulous season sponsored by Food and Beverage Department. What is really amazing this is the 4th year of our program and we are averaging 52 Seniors each week. Just think where we will be after next year, 65?

A BIG THANK YOU to all the Seniors and Instructors surprising me with a token of their appreciation. I am very humbled and honored to be a part of this remarkable team.
