FINALLY!!

So long 2020! Glad you are behind us! It was an exceedingly difficult year all around. The pandemic, closures, social distancing, new and changing policies. Wow!

Although the pandemic forced us into lockdowns since last March and severely limited our ability to offer activities, we were FINALLY able to get back out on the slopes! Thanks to all who joined the Lancaster Ski Club overnighter to Elk Mt. and Montage January 22-23, 2021. It was just like old times!! We had over 30 trip participants join us over the two different days of skiing/boarding. Elk Mt. made it seem like almost normal times and the conditions could not have been much better. Although Montage was a bit cold and windy at the top of the mountain, skiing the North side kept us out of the wind for some great runs down White Lightning. Thank goodness our lift ticket was good from open to close! A few of us did not want to leave and took the opportunity to ski under the lights! We enjoyed every minute of being out on the slopes.

The limitations of the pandemic also led to the Lancaster Ski Club Board of Directors having to make some of the most difficult decisions in 2020 regarding trips, meetings, and events that I have ever seen in all my years with the ski club. Our priority was you, your health and safety. My personal thanks to all of you that have kept up your membership during this most difficult time. Your membership dues are critical and help to pay most of the Club’s yearly expenses. Hopefully 2021 will bring us closer to normalcy and returning to the slopes with many great trip offerings!

Look for an email from our nominating committee that shares the slate of officers for this coming year and to see if there is anyone else interested in running for a board position.  As you can imagine, our current Board was elected and almost immediately, their planned Club activities were affected by the pandemic. They never truly had an opportunity to really engage and make a difference. Instead, the main objective became maintaining communication, monthly Board meetings and discussing how to keep our Club afloat during these most difficult times. With the introduction of various COVID therapies becoming available and the very real possibility that the return to normalcy appears to be so close, we are eagerly looking forward to a wonderful upcoming season.  

Lancaster Ski Club Christmas Tree Ornaments are still available for purchase. These ornaments are only $10.00 each, and profits support Special Olympics and our local charities. Limited quantities are available so, order today by contacting Kris Miller. Remember this is in place of the auction so please consider supporting this worthy cause.

Please remember that you will need to fill out a Lancaster Ski Club Health Access Form the day of any event, meeting, or trip that you attend and bring it along with you. Everyone must fill out a form whether you are a member or guest. Along with your signed health form your temperature will be taken before you can access any event, meeting, or trip. Please print out the form from our website.

Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, thoughts, or ideas.

Looking forward to when we can all get together again either on the slopes or for a beverage of choice at an LSC Membership Meeting!!

Looking forward to us all being back on the slopes,

Jon Doman

What Should I Expect from Ski Resorts This Season?

Will it be different? Yes! What should I do? Be Prepared! The best way for you to enjoy a day on any mountain this year is to Plan Ahead! Check sites or call your favorite mountain prior to any travel and ask what policies they have in place. The last thing you want to do is get to a mountain and find out that they do not have room for you, your family, or friends that day to ski or board.

Important Changes:

  • ·         Reservations Online or advanced group sales will be mandatory to ski or board at many mountains this year.
  • ·         No ticket sales at windows this year for most mountains.  
  • ·         Masks will be required everywhere. Including on the mountain and in the gondolas and chair lifts. Some mountains will even be doing temperature screening.
  • ·         Lockers will be extremely limited.
  • ·         Benches near lockers will be extremely limited.
  • ·         Mountains are asking that you boot up at your car.
  • ·         No outside food (picnic lunch) will be allowed at any seating space.
  • ·         Tailgating in the parking lot is being recommended.
  • ·         Restaurant seating will be extremely limited.
  • ·         Lift lines will be spaced out.
  • ·         Please put the ski patrol number of the mountain you visit in your cell phone. There will be less ski patrollers on the mountain this year.
  • ·         Blue Mt. is not allowing adult bus groups at their mountain for a day trip.

Travel Restrictions for New England:

  • ·         Travel restrictions are in effect throughout New England and are updated regularly.
  • ·         Several states require either quarantine for 14 days or 7 days with a negative COVID test. It is important to check travel advisory sites regularly.

On the positive side:

  • ·         Less people on the mountain which in turn is more runs per day. Whoo Hoo!!!
  • ·         Less people at one time on lifts and gondolas. Vents will be open on gondolas.
  • ·         If you have not joined one of our trips before, this is the time to join! Groups booked in advance and season ticket holders with Ikon or Epic passes will be granted access to the mountain ahead of those wanting to sign up a few days in advance.

Wishing you all a healthy and safe skiing and boarding season,

Jon Doman
