President's Message

A message from Dianne

The View From The Top


SNOW! As I write this there are several big storms predicted to come through and produce significant snow in the mountains. Let’s hope that happens! And just in time to make a snow angel for contest led by Doug Barr, with the winner to be announced at our February 5 TGIF.

Our speaker for our January general meeting was Yale Spina, the new Chair of the Sky Tavern Board of Directors. There are big changes happening to Sky Tavern! Yale is enthusiastic about the future of Sky Tavern and is passionate about this non-profit organization that promotes junior skiing programs, helping children of limited financial means to enjoy the freedom of skiing. Yale grew up skiing at the resort and credits Sky Tavern with his successful 17-year ski career competing in pro-mogul and performing worldwide as a ski acrobat. We are currently discussing the idea of having a social ski day at Sky Tavern in March – we will keep you posted.

Do you have a Reno Ski and Recreation Club pole flag to put on your ski pole, or other recreational apparatus? We have some and will start having some on hand to distribute at our social functions. It’s a great way to help find fellow Recr’s on the mountain.

A big thanks goes to those who have organized our recent social ski days, which have  been quite successful. Suzie Jacox, Ron Percivalle and Gary Rose has been instrumental in organizing and meeting skiers at designated times and locations, and Gayle Sherman and Peter Callison opened their back yard for an après ski party. And thanks to Ed Shaw for leading a snowshoe hike, and again to Gary who has another planned in February.

Out social activities continue with a movie watch parties, renting theaters for a maximum of 20, and with Zoom general meetings and a Zoom TGIF’ each month. When the weather warms up a bit we can have more outdoor TGIF’s. Let us know if you have ideas and would like to lead an activity.

Keep recreating,
