We were moved to the "YURT" a couple Wednesdays later due to racers. After the move to the "Powderhound" yurt, we were spoiled. So that is where home base became the rest of the year, (with the exception of one time in LODGE 2 when chair one was non-operational). We ended our season with the annual brat lunch in LODGE 1.
Many of the Prime Timer Wednesdays were sunny! Besides good skiing and superb grooming, we had great after ski gatherings. We were able to be in & outside the yurt and on lodge 1 deck to gather.
The lunch coupon ticket drawing was a big hit! The Prime Timers purchased 100 coupons from the mountain and Gail held the weekly drawings in the Yurt! Kevin Pryor graciously donated 4 x $25 gift certificates for our on-line drawing. Other skiers on the mountain heard about the fun and we ended up with some new members! We are kinda fun!
About 40 of us headed to McCall February 15 - 19 for our ski trip. We hit it right for the snow conditions. We enjoyed powder and a few sunny, super groomer days. Many of us that hadn't gotten to ski together, connected up for most of the days and skied some fantastic runs.
Larry Vandendberg organized an impromptu Gonzaga game night at the hotel. Joey cooked up some brats & burgers & we had us a great pot luck!
For our last day, Gabe was happy to make the Brat lunch happen. With luck, the seating capacity was raised to 50% a week before our lunch, so we could increase the attendees. We had 150 happy Prime Timers enjoy the lunch, friends and sun. What a fantastic way to end our season!
We will begin to workout details and dues for next year in the next couple months. Everyone who was on the email list from 2019 - 2021 will be given information as soon as we have it figured out. We also may be sending out a survey for your input. For instance, I know there was some requests for us to be in lodge 1 next year. It is up to the mountain, but we may have input.
Thank you to Gail for being in the YURT every week! And thank you to all our 256 members and 21 new members for making this fantastic season!
