Rescheduled – RSVP Gray Wolf Luncheon – Sport Day March 5th 2024

RSVP Closed

Rescheduled due to upcoming storm

The next Gray Wolf Luncheon is rescheduled  Tuesday March 5th at Wolf Creek Ski Area Main Lodge beginning at 11:00am til 1:00pm. Theme is Sport Day so dress as your Sport team!  The club will pay up to $8.00 per each current Gray Wolf member’s lunch meal.

Once again we will have participating members 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.

A group photo will be taken at 12:15pm outside the Main Lodge

Lunch Special is Beef Stroganoff, side vegetable and dessert.

RSVP by March 1st Friday 5pm with your choice of the lunch special or other

Senior Skiing Groups in the USA

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.

MOAA Ski Trips

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.
