    President's Black Diamond Rundown:         

    April 2017

    It has been 10 years since I first joined the Club but I can still remember 2008 when we could only fill 1 trip. Well, last year and this year we ran 5 great ski trips. The Boca Ski Club has come a long way thanks to all of you. So let’s keep the momentum going; please become more active in the development of the Club. Membership, social activities, marketing and new and exciting adventures are all areas in which we need committee assistance. It is also the time of year that we accept nominations for the Board. There will be at least 3 openings so please let me know if you would like to volunteer or would like more information.

    The Board is already planning 2018 season ski trips and considering summer trips/events as well. But, it is not too late to let us know what your preferences are. Remember this is your Club - your input and participation helps us to grow the Club and make all of the trips & events as successful as possible.

    Anybody who has not  yet joined the Boca Ski Club on Meetup, please consider doing so. Meetup is a great social network that allows us to quickly and easily keep you up to date on all upcoming events, and you are even able to RSVP. There is a link on the website to make easy for you; it is FREE to sign up!

    President's Black Diamond Rundown:   

    Our first two trips are completed – Snowmass and Breckenridge.  By all accounts they were very successful with everyone having a wonderful time.  Weather and snow conditions were excellent, and the comradery was warm and friendly.  A special congratulations to Kevin Murtha for his first trip as the trip leader. And, a thank you to Tony Magna for leading the trip to Snowmass. 

    The  trip to Banff/Lake Louise, Canada, led by Linda Howe, another new Trip Leader, is well underway. There are still two trips remaining, St. Anton, Austria with Kathi Mosier and my trip to Big Sky.

    We all should be grateful that we are able to continue enjoying the things we love to do.  However, we might contemplate just how long it will last.  Well my friends please view the attached short video for some real inspiration...

    Hello Boca Ski Club: Breckenridge 2017 is in the books!! According to the Trip Evaluations and the participants' good cheer, it was a great success. The "Group of 25" made the trip and had a great time. The conditions at Breck were fabulous; plenty of snow, food, fun and fellowship.

    Ski News:
    Top Five US Ski Resorts for Foodies:   
    Your winter vacation is no doubt about getting out on the snow, but there are other things that make a trip memorable. For a lot of us, food plays a big part in any vacation. So, why not combine your love for the snow with the desire to eat at some fantastic restaurants? Here are some of the best ski resorts for foodies in the US:
    >Park City, Utah. The state has loosened some of it's previously strict liquor laws and Utah is becoming one of the best places to try locally produced spirits.
    >Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The resort area now has more restaurants than you will be able to visit in a single ski vacation. 
    >Stowe, Vermont. So close to Ben and Jerry's ice cream factory...
    >Vail, Colorado. There is something for everyone; seafood, steaks and fine French cuisine.
    >Taos, New Mexico. It's not just Southwest and Mexican anymore...


    Top Four US Progression Ski Resorts:
    Building basic skills is easy enough with all kinds of resorts providing lessons for beginners. However, if you want to progress quickly from stage to stage, you’ll need to choose the right resort. These resorts all offer something that will help you to push past a plateau and work towards your goals as a skier.
    >Sun Valley, Idaho. There are plenty of intermediate runs to tackle across the two mountains at Sun Valley but you can do more than just improve on your skills here. This resort gives you the chance to try something new too. The Red Tail Hawk trails are a great chance for you to try your hand at trail skiing through some varied terrain. Once you’ve tried these trails, perhaps move up to the Huckleberry Bear trail that offers a little more for those of you who feel confident and want to explore.
    >Heavenly, Lake Tahoe. This resort has a fantastic Ski and Ride School that makes learning to ski and snowboard a lot of fun.
    >Squaw Valley, California. If you want to try something new or take on a new challenge, head on over to one of the five terrain parks.
    >Killington, Vermont. For those of you who want to tackle a terrain park or two, start at the Easy Street Progression Park. The 15 small features are perfect for beginners and the fun, learning environment makes it easy to progress. Once you feel confident, perhaps head to the Timberline Park where you’ll find 20 small and medium jumps, jibs and rails.
