There will be an 18-hole scramble and a clambake with the proceeds going to Dismas House. Marlene Burke, who died last year, was a past president of Dismas House. Bob died in 2004.

President's Message - August 2017

August 2017

As I sit here rifling through my bag on a plane headed to Dallas, I come across the quintessential reminder of why we do what we do every weekend from November to April. It’s a note from one of our athletes that simply reads:

 Pete the Cat!

Jasper, as many of you may know, is one of our U8 rock stars who at the age of 6 came out EVERY weekend last season. Regardless of the ever-changing weather, there was Jasper ready to make new friends and have a blast doing what we all LOVE to do …. SKI !!!

I can only reflect on the fact that while we are parents, coaches or both, our job and the reason the Pico Ski Club exists is to instill the raw love of skiing that old Jasper so eloquently penned in his thank you note to me at the end of last season.

Whether you or your kids race or just ski for fun, being out on the hill with your friends and family and getting that feeling of flying down 49er or ripping up Busted is only attainable if someone in your life simply showed you how.

Pico Ski Club Wins Vara Golf Tournament

Golf Team

The Pico Ski Club team won the VARA Golf Classic May 30th at Green Mountain National Golf Course.

Pico Ski Club team of Matt Kinsman, Brian Pell, Karl Larson and Cody Larson tied with Green Mountain Valley School, and then went on to win the tiebreaker to take the tournament victory.

Many thanks to all the teams who showed up despite the unruly weather forecast! The rain, thunder and lightning stayed away throughout the event. Sixteen teams rallied to play a best ball, shotgun start, tournament. There were great prizes and product donations for the participant raffle. The players were able to complete all 18 holes with no weather interruptions and enjoyed and excellent BBQ dinner while waiting for awards.

Thanks for another great season!

Great season!

Volunteerism is the key to a successful Pico Ski Club

The Pico Ski Club has been a successful organization for more than 60 years because members volunteer for numerous activities and events, such as the annual Ski Swap, Social Activities, Club Maintenance, Race Crew, etc.

Additionally, membership dues are affordable because everyone is pitching in. Every year when you renew your membership, you’re asked to indicate which event and/or activities you would be willing to assist. Unfortunately though, many members have failed to fulfill their volunteer commitments when called upon by the various committee chairs. The failure of the membership to lend a hand increases the time commitment and pressure for those that do volunteer on a regular basis. 

Without volunteer support from the membership, the Pico Ski Club may ultimately have to reduce the benefits afforded to the membership. This could mean fewer Social Events, overall reduction in Ski Swap hours and dates, and deferred maintenance projects that in the long run could end up costing the club thousands of dollars.
