State of the Club

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

  • The BOD has elected to extend current memberships until August 31, 2020. 

  • Membership renewal will not begin until after 1-AUG-2020.

  • The membership fee for  the 2020/2021 season has yet to be determined.

  • Lane Hotchkiss, once again chairing the Ski Trip Committee, has begun plotting next winter's Up North and Out West trips. 

  • Lane tells us that his travel agent counterparts have reported to him they are working with other clubs per usual despite the current COVID situation.

  • Also, Lane is working with Sports America, the agency that helped set up the Ogden trip, to claim reimbursements. 

    All charges by the agency, except airfare will be reversed leading to reimbursements.  

    Reimbursed expenses are hotel, ground transportation, and lift tickets.

    It's not clear yet how Southwest will handle the cancelled flight.  Sports America is still working the issue.   

  • Note, both ski resorts, and all others in the Central Rockies, closed prior to when our Ogden, Utah trip was supposed to happen.

The April 23rd General Meeting at Cobblestone Farm is cancelled.

Cobblestone, owned by the city, has further indicated they are not taking reservations for May.

Tips & Member News

Alan Osterdale, Chairman of the Events & Activities Planning Committee sent in this tip...

Not only is Peak Ski and Sports selling their usual wares -- online only-- they're also where you can go to buy face masks.

Thanks for the tip Alan.

Lane Hotchkiss has this unfortunate news he'd like to share with our eBlast readership since a lot of friends have been asking.

Jan Hotchkiss is rehabilitating after a biking accident.   She crashed while avoiding a child’s sudden rush into the street.  With one week of rehab behind her she’s looking at 2 to 3 more before going home to continue her recovery. 

Once recovery is complete in about 4 months, and we’re no longer social distancing, look for Jan to focus on walking where some of us are riding, and cross-country skiing wherever there’s snow.  That downhill thing... been there done that!

She can’t have visitors!  Not even family.  Not even Lane.  And, cards and flowers are verboten. (No need to say why-- cough-ovid.)

  Digital communication, texts and emails, are okay and appreciated.

Best Wishes on a Speedy Recovery Jan!
