EXCITING SKI NEWS
The Albuquerque Ski Club (MOAA) has invited us to join them on their winter excursions this year. All are within a 3 hour drive of Pagosa Springs so you would not need to take their bus, unless, of course, you are a member from near Albuquerque. A small discount would apply. Please review the memos in the attached link and apply directly to the individual trip sponsors listed. You do not need to become a member of MOAA to do this. If you’re thinking about going to these ski areas this season, it would be a good way to hook up with other skiers.

With help from Harriet Wallis, who organizes the Wild Old Bunch senior skiing group at Alta, UT, Rosie Piller put together a Google spreadsheet of senior skiing groups in the United States. Our organization is listed! I hope you will find the spreadsheet useful if you travel out of state and want to connect with other senior skiers.
It’s a work in progress–surely there are groups to add and corrections to make, and we welcome your input! But please DO NOT flood my email account with corrections or additions; rather, use the method described at the top of the Google spreadsheet.
The next Gray Wolf Luncheon coming up Tuesday March 28th (11:00am-1:00pm) at Wolf Creek Ski Area Main Lodge. Theme is Beach Party so get your Beach wear out! The club will kick in up to $8.00 per each current Gray Wolf member’s meal. We will have a group picture at 12:15 outside the Main Lodge. RSVP by Friday March 24th 5pm.
We are going to try a slightly different approach this year and have those participating get a token before they get in line at the Lodge. That way we can check to be sure they are a current member. The cashier will take the token and make it easier on the cashier and let us reimburse the ski area sooner.
The Lunch Special is Chile relleno with red sauce, Spanish rice and black beans
