Ausblick’s May 2018 Newsletter

Ausblick Newsletter

May 2018



What an incredible snowsports season, in several ways. Most notably we set a new “closing day” record by nearly 2 weeks! Further, this season was almost a month longer than last season.  Let’s hope we’re finally reversing the weather trend of the past few years.

To truly appreciate our historical closing day achievement I suggest you visit our website (“www.ausblick.org”) and click on the Photos tab to view over 100 pictures posted capturing the event. Due to the number of pictures, the gallery is split between “Party and Event”. If you participated, there’s likely a photo of you to prove it.  For those whom have disbelievers that anyone in your family would “pond skim” in alpine skis, …. well, you just have to check out the Event pictures.

Aside from the opportunity to celebrate a record season, Dennis and his staff have expanded our social activities this season in hopes of providing more value to your membership. You may have attended the Wine Tasting, enjoyed Ryan McIntire’s music on a couple Adult Nights, or noticed Ausblick’s increased activity on social media; complete with those great video’s Jordan has been posting. On the snow during the season, you just may have found more variety in snow features, a tunnel with lights (seriously), and Kyle’s Pond, which may become an annual event, weather permitting. And let’s not forget our Snowsports School Program adjustments, Ski Patrol Carnival, Deck Party and all the other events Ausblick hosts for you and your Guests.

The purpose of this newsletter is to recognize Dennis and his staff for another incredible season and to make you aware of a Membership Survey to be sent out in May.  Please take the time to respond.  The last survey was responsible for changing our Saturday schedule and while we cannot implement all suggestions, we are sincerely interested in your input.

I sincerely hope you enjoyed your membership this season.  Our Ski Club certainly has evolved into a Snowsports Club to better define our Membership personality. However, our commitment to Membership Families, Friendships and making lasting memories remains as one of our strengths.  We have several multi-generational families within our membership and that speaks for itself.  Check out those website photo’s and you’ll see what Ausblick is all about.

Ausblick February 2018 Newsletter

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.
