The Social Committee would like to extend our thanks to the following racers for their great job in cleaning the club this past Saturday afternoon in preparation for the social event. The club looked great!!
Hopefully we have not missed anyone, however we apologize if we did. Thank you!
Each and every club member is responsible for cleaning up after themselves. Parents of children found creating and leaving messes such as this (photo from Wednesday afternoon 31-Dec.) will be addressed individually by the club Membership Committee and may be subject to action by the club Board of Directors
Greetings Pico Ski Club Members and Happy Holidays!
It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is now a distant memory and the Christmas break is right in front of us. Over the past two weekends, the club has had a “hum” that I can best describe as regular winter activity. I’m sure we are all looking forward to closing out 2014, hopefully with a bit more natural snow on top of what we’ve already received and that which Pico is making. As I’m writing and thinking about snow making, has anybody skied early season at Killington? Were you able to see the new high efficiency snow guns and what they have been producing? It’s absolutely unbelievable to see how quickly a trail can now be covered and the energy saving that I’ve read about seems quite impressive too. Where is this headed might you ask? It’s about change - what I’ve seen speaks to change within the ski industry. Much like the high speed detachable quad lift revolutionized Pico some 25+ years ago, so too will this new snow making technology as it infiltrates its way across ski country.
Hi, I’m Michael Roussel, Pico Ski Club President - 2014 / 2015 ski season. For those who may not know me, I have been a member of the Club for the past eight seasons and active in the clubhouse volunteer committee. I’m sometimes seen as the guy behind the shovel or snow blower helping to clear the decks on snowy weekend mornings. I am perhaps better known as Marnie’s husband or Austin and Dylan’s father. My family has been active in club and racing since the age of Hopefuls and now our two boys are U16 and U14 athletes respectively. Additionally, you will see my alter ego wearing a Pico Ski & Snowboard School parka as I’m part time instructor, working on weekends and holidays.
On behalf of the entire PSC coaching staff, I would like to congratulate Sami Rubin and her coach Chris Reynolds on her selection as the 2014 recipient of the Betty Clayton Award.
The Betty Clayton Award is one of six Vermont Alpine Racing Association (VARA) Merit Awards given annually to deserving VARA athletes. This award is presented to a U21-U16 level athlete who has attained top results while participating in a club program. The selected athlete receives a $1,000 scholarship.
Sami will be presented with this award at the VARA Gala on November 8th at the Equinox Resort in Manchester, Vermont.
Sami has been a top MVC racer over the years and this season proved to be no different. Sami produced great results in her first year racing as a U18. The U18-U21 racing circuit has a rigorous schedule that includes state, regional and national events. The U18-U21 circuit includes two season-long series, the Vermont Cup Series and the George Tormey Series, as well as a State Championship Series. These series are typically dominated by academy, collegiate and national caliber athletes. Sami's results are very impressive given that she is a club level athlete who is challenged with balancing school, training and racing and limited access to midweek training.
