|Jay Peak, Vermont||March 17-22, 2013||
Let it Snow!!!! The last trip for the RSC was a delight for snow
lovers! Jay lived up to its past reputation for great snow in middle to late March. Three out of four days saw fresh
snow on the slopes. There were also some bright sunny days. Those who always search for untracked powder found lots and
those who sought the groomed slopes were not disappointed. In addition to the already more than 280 inches of snow
received, the area received about 36 inches while we were there.
RSC members were housed in the brand new Hotel Jay. The accommodations were good and the two restaurants and pubs had a
variety of items on their menus such as pork with a maple walnut glaze and rack of lamb---and you could have a great
hamburger or a variety of pizzas. At the end of the day—why not a soak
in the hot tub, take a slide ride with or without a tube, a ride on the lazy river or even try surfing on the wave
ride. Some could even watch the activities from their rooms which overlooked the very large indoor water park. A great time was had by all!!! Tips up to Anne F., for planning and coordinating
the trip, as well as to all the participants on the trip. A special thanks goes to all the gentlemen who helped load
and unload the bus.
|Copper Mountain, Colorado||February 10-17, 2013||
In mid-February, 2013, twenty-eight fortunate RSC skiers had the pleasure of
visiting Summit County, Colorado to experience the "joy of skiing". Paul Quirin organized a terrific array of
Colorado ski destinations including Copper Mountain, Keystone and Breckenridge. Other than a few
skiers suffering from brief bouts of altitude sickness and some skier lodge accommodation disparity issues at
Copper Mountain, the overall ski trip took place with the precision of a finely tuned Swiss time piece. All of
our United Airlines flights were on-time departures and arrivals and every single piece of RSC checked baggage
arrived at the designated baggage claim areas upon our scheduled arrivals.
|Sunday River, Maine||January 27-February 1, 2013||Many thanks to Nancy and Jim Peters, on bus #1, for another great trip to Sunday River. Nancy's annual brown bags kept us nourished until we reached Ninety Nine Restaurant in Saratoga for lunch. Mary S. kept bus #2 in line and Anne S.'s movies kept us entertained until we reached Sunday River. The Sunday River chefs were waiting for us with tables full of food. After a day of eating and riding, it was time to hit the slopes. We had two days of nice snow and some sunshine. The first day they were giving out free muffins and hot chocolate. Jim Peters got the last free muffin and then gloated about it being oh sooo good, making everyone jealous. The fog rolled in on the third day and heavy rain on the fourth; however that didn't keep the diehards inside. The rest of us had the pool, hot tub, gym, cards and shopping to keep us busy. We were treated to wonderful meals at the "Rooster's Road House", "Phoenix" and the "Bethel Inn", which was celebrating their 100th birthday. The Rochester Ski Club has participated the past 17 years. Ten of our members were honored for being over 80 and showing us that age is only a number. Friday came too soon and it was time for Eric L. and Kevin R. to take us to the "The P J Truck Stop" where we purchased cream puffs, bread and delicious pastries before heading home. It was another wonderful year for the 100 people that were there and we're looking forward to many more trips to Sunday River. ***Carol Bonczyk***||JimP|
|Okemo, Vermont||January 13-16, 2013||Thanks to Joy and Larry for another great trip to Okemo. There were about 40 club members that enjoyed our first ski trip for the year to Vermont. The weather was good for traveling but the first day skiing was just “good”, the second day it improved and the third day, with 3-5 inches of snow and snow making in progress, it was great. We all found it hard to leave. The food, as usual was suburb and of course the company was the greatest. We had two glitches, Betty G. fell and injured her knee and ankle, and at this writing she is better. Also Pieter A. had problems on the way to Okemo and his roommate, Phil P., was the good friend who gave up his ski trip and took Pieter to the hospital. Pieter is home and doing much better. ***Jo Newkirk***||LarryS|
