The last few weekends of the 2022-23 season

What an amazing March we’ve had….

Most of the season we were fighting the weather and the temps to get the snow we needed to have good conditions, and then in rolled March and dumped a ton of snow on most of us. Not sure about your area, but we’ve enjoyed better conditions this March than the entire rest of the season. Oh well, better late than never.

As we enter April the season is winding down and some mountains are closing with skiable terrain still available. Looks like the uphill crowd will have at least a few days left to play in the mountains.

Summer season will be here shortly with all of its outdoor activities. Downhill mountain biking, kayaking, swimming, hiking, adventure parks, etc. Enjoy your time outside, stay in shape, and keep an eye out for periodic updates on the latest news from National and the Region.

Summer Season Update

Hi All

Its been a while since an update and a lot has happened in those months.

Let’s start with National rolling out the new Learning Management System (LMS) using this upcoming Cycle C Refresher as its kick off course. Be prepared, this refreshers online portion takes around 4 to 5 hours to complete. You can do it in sections so no need to do it all at once. Additionally this system is used by Instructors to create new course listings so the process for signing up for courses has changed. Stay tuned for more information on that as we are all learning together on this. Keep an eye on our website calendar for upcoming events.

With the growth of lift served downhill Mountain Biking (it’s no longer just the Highlands) there is now a National Bike Advisor. Eastern Division and NH Region (along with many other Regions) are still looking for Bike Advisors. We’ve had several interested parties but are still looking to finalize positions. For those of you interested feel free to contact me with questions. Also, if you haven’t tried it, get out and give it a go, it’s a blast.
