State of the Club

The Ann Arbor Ski Club
has suspended all club activities
(except virtual ones)
until further notice.

Latest COVID information from the State of Michigan

Still No Approved  2020-2021 Ski Trips

The BOD  met on July 23.

Ski Trip Coordinator Lane Hotchkiss reported on his in-depth conversation with one of our longtime travel agents.

  • 25% of clubs are entering locked-in contracts
  • 25% of clubs are entering escape-clause contracts
  • 50% aren't scheduling trips

Because of the uptick in infections and hospitalizations the Board chose to continue in the current virtual-only status.

Lane reports that travel agents will have ski trip options to offer as late as November this year because travel is so far down.  But, BOD consensus leans toward no ski trips due to the ongoing pandemic.

Stay Safe

The only club-sponsored event on the calendar is the September bike trip to Traverse City.  Updated details are below.

Ken Shannon Pretends to be a Butterfly

During a recent cross-state bike ride Ken helped the Monarch Butterfly Migration Study by carrying sensors on his bike.

A touring bike travels at about the same speed as a Monarch.  And, in the future they'll carry their sensors instead of offloading to Ken.  Check it out.

Nobody Hangs Eleven Here
Surfing the Great Lakes

"The surf can flow thick and slushy like a Slurpee or load up with ice the size of golf balls and even bowling balls. Surfers have to be vigilant for sheets of ice as big as parking spaces, as well as changing shore conditions, where fast-forming ice shelves can make escape impossible."
