Ausblick’s February 2018 Newsletter
What a gift it is to have a “typical” season so far this year; we simply needed a reversal of the past two seasons. At this point in the season the hill conditions are great, we escaped the occasional “January thaw/rain” and looking forward, everything looks optimistic.
This newsletter serves as a quick update of activities of interest, hopefully. Beginning with social events, we’ve had several to date, with more on the schedule. Since our season opening, we’ve held our New Year’s Eve Party, the January Men’s and Ladies Day outings, our Ski Patrol Carnival and our Valentine’s Evening and Wine Presentation Event. Pictures can be found on our website, along with a drone video of Carnival thanks to Jordan and Kyle. Going forward, our social schedule includes another Ladies Day (2/20), Men’s Day (2/22), Music by Ryan McIntire Wednesday evening (2/28) and our awesome Membership Appreciation Deck Party, to be announced for a selective (best 🙂 weekend in March. Watch for an announcement from Dennis based upon weather forecasts.
Also of interest will be a Membership Survey currently under development. Expect to receive it in April. Our last survey was done in 2012, and was responsible for initiating our current alternate continuous Saturdays and a few other subtle changes. We ask that as you enjoy the remainder of the season and give some thought to possible input for the upcoming survey.
As always, we encourage all our members to introduce their friends to Ausblick by inviting them out. The vast majority of our new members were guests of current members, which just may be the Prize Winning Recipe to maintaining our membership “family” for over 40 years. We’re all part of Ausblick, the families, friendships, all the memories and our Ausblick brand which includes our awesome Race Team and Ski School.
In closing and on behalf of your Board of Directors, we all want to recognize G.M. Dennis Evinrude for all his guidance in providing us an incredible facility and experience while at our club. Same kudos go to our Ski Patrol and their Leadership, Kyle our Outside Operations Mgr., Lynn our fantastic Ski School Director, Jordan our Front Desk Mgr., and Ian our Director of Chairlift Operations., along with all their respective staff who’s efforts are focused on our enjoyment while at Ausblick. Special Thanks to Ausblick Members Mike & Tiffany Becker (NYE Party + January Ladies Day), Mike Wichert, Kyle & Lynn, Andy Portale (Men’s Day), Tracy Breitzman & Jenny Talbot (February Ladies Day) and Amy Bruss & Kelly Bradford (Valentine’s Day Wine Tasting); for planning and organizing our social events to date this season.
Enjoy the remainder of the season and don’t forget to schedule those social events.
President – Ausblick Ski Club
