STARS 1-27-16

Hi STARS:

We had a great time today in our 4th Senior STARS Clinic of the season. 46 Seniors participated in our lessons and we brought them not only great snow, blue sky and sunshine, but friendship too!

We welcomed 6 NEW Seniors to our STARS Family and Ron Parody gave tips on how to put on your ski boots correctly in our indoor clinic. At 9:30 we took our group photo and we hit the chair.

Looks like next week will be a winner too, since we are expecting some NEW snow Sunday into Monday.

Don't forget to RSVP prior to next Wednesday and also check out the photos from today at  http://seniorprogramstars.blogspot.com

Have a great rest of the week!


Ski u later... Bill

Reminder for Wednesday's Clinic at the West Resort

Hi STARS:
Just a reminder for the 4th Senior STARS clinic of the season on Wednesday.
We will be at the WEST RESORT this Wednesday, January 27th due to the closure of the East Resort. But we will be skiing and riding and know we will have a GREAT time!

Last week we had 41 Seniors participate in our STARS Program. That means we are averaging 48 seniors each week. I have been told if you build a great program and deliver it, Seniors will come. Looks like we are on the right track.

Thank you to all Seniors who make our Wednesday’s the BEST here at Mountain High Resort.

Please RSVP so we can make sure we have the right number of instructors to meet your needs.

Don’t forget to check out the photos from last week at http://seniorprogramstars.blogspot.com

Ski u Wednesday,

Senior STARS Set A Record- 73 Seniors

Hi STARS:
What a beautiful day we had at Mountain High East today! Blue sky, plenty of sunshine and great snow! We welcomed 20 New Seniors to our Program! Temperature was in the low 40’s and all our ski groups and snowboard groups had a terrific time.

The actor Kevin Costner, in his movie Field of Dreams, made famous the statement "If you build it, they will come." This is also true of the Senior Ski Program at Mountain High Resort. Our Seniors came today as we had 73 Seniors take part in carving great turns on the snow at East Resort.

Our indoor clinic was met with great approval from all the Seniors as John Ward and Ron Parody shared their expertise on how to tune your skis and snowboards.

About 33 percent of you STARS purchase your lesson and lift ticket online. Sure is easier from the comfort of your home purchasing what you need instead of standing in line, isn't?

Don't forget to check out the retail store at West Resort and East Resort. There are a lot of nice jackets, helmets and gloves at reasonable prices.

Next Wednesday, January 20th we should have plenty of groomed runs and maybe some NEW snow to ski and ride. Have a great rest of the week!

If you are having problems logging in to purchase your lesson and lift ticket online, please email me with the specific issue and I will pass it on to IT Department so it can be resolved.

Enjoy the group photo from today!!

Ski u later,


Bill
