Week 1 Go

Week 1 Go

Sky Tavern
Week 1 is this weekend!
January 15-16, 2022
We are getting going.
I say it every year and truly mean it. You are about to create the coolest thing ever. This is just not done like this any longer anywhere in this sport. The age of pay and play is here to stay, but the acts and efforts of building, and creating have so much more value. By the end of the season, you will believe that your making Sky Tavern go is so much more than if you bought Sky Tavern.
See you this weekend. It is going to be amazing.
The bullet points of survival vs. flourishing.
  • There is a huge amount of moving parts. It will seem like chaos just exactly like Week 1 for the previous 70 years. Everyone finds their way and place. Don't Panic to quote Douglas Adams.
  • Do not worry if the badges have not shown up in your mailbox yet. We have a way around it for opening weekend. Passes can be picked up in the lodge throughout the day. We would rather see kids in class than wait for a pass in a line at 9 AM. We can deal with this. Go to class.
  • We start lining up classes at 8:30 after we raise the flag.
  • Lifts start at 9:00.
  • Classes last for two or more hours. Make a meeting spot for your kids.
  • Buses Load at 2:30. Being late back to the bus gets around at school on Monday.
  • Lift close at 4:00. We work really hard to stick to these times.
  • The biggest limiting factor is the parking lot. Please come in the second entrance by the rental shop and follow your neighbor directing you. Get here early. Park tight. Do it quickly but safely. Alicia is a parking guru. Follow her lead. She needs help, lots of help. 7 AM start time. Coffee is free that time of day because I made it.
  • More instructors mean more fun for kids. Support members. Even if you didn't sign up as an instructor come give it a try. Sky Tavern needs more instructors!
  • Dan is the mentor of instructors and he can be found in the back room usually. A little loud, camo pants, and big whiskers. Love him. Find him. What we do is have you follow someone for the first day. It is easy. There are more support members than needed to run and fewer instructors. This is a community effort. Stretch a bit. Get kids on snow. Why we are all here! Sky teaches to teach.
  • MASKS IN THE LODGE and please no hoarding of tables. There are timers on the tables. They are for real.
  • Smile and laugh and remember to tell me that too. This is FUN. Keep it that way.
  • Helmets on everyone skiing or riding
  • No snowplow parents out on the snow. Please let instructors do their thing. Go ski, go help SkyKids or the kitchen. Adriaan setting up the BBQ has more stories than a Greek philosopher. Meet him.
  • If you have not signed up for a job there will be a list of things to do on the whiteboard by the lunchline. It is going to expand and contract as the day goes on. Just check it out, and listen to the announcements of where we need help. Again parking is the first place we need help. Do it and call it good for the day.
  • The weatherman promised good to great. So let's do this and Go.
