Hope everyone had a happy and healthy holiday.

A few of our mountains are open (more will soon) and from what i hear the snow conditions are better than expected. We still have a ways to go temperature wise before we can get serious about higher trail counts and deeper snow depths. That said the man made trails we have are a good start. Now all we need is some help from Mother Nature by way of some natural snow, and consistently colder temps.

The elections for the National Board have closed and the four who will join the board are: Myron Allen, Kristi Ball, Rick Boyce, Julie Stone. Julie was re-elected to her post on the Board.  Additionally there was a ballot question as to Mt Host / Bike Hosts member standing. The vote was to maintain the status of Associate member, thus keeping the OEC level as the base level for “Traditional” members.

So now that the refreshers and voting are behind us the only thing left to do is start Skiing and Riding.

Let the fun begin!
Here’s hoping for a good season (lots of snow and temps to enjoy it in)

See you on the Hill
