Saturday Update for STARS


Hi STARS:
Just a Saturday update on Mountain High and our STARS program for this season. As of today Mt High Resort is closed and time will tell if it reopens anytime soon. Though several El Nino storms have past through, we still do not have enough snow to reopen the mountain and this puts a damper on our Senior Program too.

With any luck…we will be able to get a few more STARS clinics in before April. Attached is a photo from last Monday when we received 5 inches of new snow. Looks great doesn’t it!

I will keep you informed as I receive information from the resort.

Until then…Ski u later,

Bill

Hi STARS:
Just want to let you know that our next STARS Clinic, Wednesday, February 24th will be cancelled due to snow conditions not the BEST for you Seniors. This does not mean the end of the season but a temporary hold on our program till we receive more natural snow.

I want to THANK each and every Senior who participated this season and your commitment does not go unnoticed by the instructors and me too. You are why we do this each week here at Mountain High. Most of you have been with us since the beginning, February 2010 and here we are in our 7th year. What a ride!!

We have almost completed 7 years of the program. From our eyes it has been a fantastic program and we want to make it even better next year. Please take a minute and email me one thing we can glow on (Positive) and one thing we can grow on (Improve). This will help us develop the necessary goals for next years program. Your input is so valuable, without it we cannot build the program.

I would like to personally thank the instructors who have been incredible this season dealing with all the changes we have had to endure to make this program work. This TEAM is OUTSTANDING and a pleasure to work along side each and every Wednesday. Without their commitment we could not meet the individual needs for you Seniors. Thanks.. Ron, Allan, Larry, John Ward, Mark, George D., Bruce, George M. Greg, Jon Smith and Jim Kennedy.

I also want to thank Ann in tickets, Tracy, and Katie for their continued support behind the scenes to make our program the BEST! Thanks ladies!

Our STARS Program would not have been possible without the complete support of management. In the past seven years, they have provided resources in making the Program successful. Thanks Karl, Michele, John, and Ben.

Last but not least I want to thank Blaine Lomen, our Winter Sports School Director.. He has given his total support behind the STARS Program and all of us really appreciate it.

Hopefully in a couple of weeks I can bring you GREAT news that we will have the snow conditions warranted to have our next STARS clinic.

Until then….. Ski u later,



 Bill

STARS Clinic 2-10-16

Hi STARS:

What can I say about today as it looked like the Senior STARS had Mountain High West Resort by themselves as 45 Seniors participated in our 6th Clinic of the season.  Spring conditions greeted us this morning as most groups were skiing and riding the top of the mountain where the snow was described as “butter”. Our Senior STARS “were ripping it up today”!!

Beautiful blue sky and lots of sunshine greeted the STARS as we finished out the 2 1/2 hour clinic in style! 

Coverage is excellent, so make sure you come up again before our next clinic on Wednesday, February 17th!

Below is our group photo from today and please go to
http://seniorprogramstars.blogspot.com for the small group photos with your instructor.

Ski u later,


Bill
