Highway Trash Pickup Monday June 10th 10:00am

Our second Highway 160 trash pickup will be scheduled for Monday June 10th.   We are responsible for the area between mile markers 152 and 154.  CDOT will be contacted to let them know to pick up the following day.

We will meet at the Tractor Supply parking lot at 10:00am for your assignments and supplies.  We will provide you with trash bags, and orange vests.  Please bring gloves, water, appropriate clothing, and your own trash grabber if you have one.

Afterwards, we’ll get together at the parking area on East Fork road for brats and chips. BYOB

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.
