Presidents Weekend 2020 & another Mayor Bob story.
The biggest weekend in skiing every year. Week 6/5 is how is is working out this season, way ahead of past years. The weather should not be anything that stops us from running all three days!
Nope, still hasn't snowed in 2020 and yep, the coverage is still great. A bit firm in the morning, but still not having to dodge much thanks to the grooming guys. Thank them. They are doing great work all night long.
Saturday and Sunday are regular lesson days. We need instructors to do their thing and get kids to the next level. The 'Moms" are adding in some raffles and silent auctions. A few of the high school race teams will be there Sunday practicing as well. Go run their course.
Sunday, after closing, is the 2020 volunteer dinner. Again the Moms and a few of the Dads that are department heads and such, will be serving up dinner. Tri-tip, chicken, salad, more. This is part of the thanks for members, and their kids, for making Sky Tavern happen. We do ask you sign up that you will be there at the front desk. Teri and crew cook for 200, but just checking numbers to relieve some stress. We are a family now and doing something amazing for kids. Have dinner.
After that, at dark, comes the annual torchlight parade. Pretty cool thing to see and a skiing tradition. Adults, see Patrol if you want to do it. The stuff stories are made of.
Monday is fun. No lessons and sorry no buses. We just have a day of skiing and riding. Still need help running the place, but everyone gets a few laps in. All members, go ski. Bus kids find a ride up. If you want to bring non-members, like your neighbors or cousins, to see and experience your Sky Tavern, this is the day to do it. $40 for adult non-members and $30 for non-member kids. That number usually lets us break even for the day since you members just help but are free. Yes, I have rental gear. All sizes. Just be patient since it is packed away.
Bobos will be there Monday with DEMOS to try. It is so much fun to try the new skis. Again it is free to borrow a pair for a couple of laps and then return them and try something else. Steve and Mary are huge supporters of the Program and always make this fun. Make the former Sky Tavern kids, that are now employees at Bobos, work hard for you. Ask really hard questions about side cut ratios and binding release distances. Make a deal with Steve for something new and zippy. You deserve it. Hug Mary. She deserves it from us.
