Fall Prep for the Upcoming Winter!

October 8, 2018
I am looking out of the clubhouse windows and the snow over highlands is creeping down closer and closer! This is exciting news and it should flip the switch to start thinking about our upcoming winter season. We have already hosted our Nordic Fit night back in September, the AVSC Ski Swap this past weekend, and most of our fall sports will come to a close in a few weeks.

If you haven’t already signed up for our programs and filled out your scholarship applications please keep in mind our next deadline is for Bill Koch and High School early season pricing on November 2nd!
Still Need Equipment??? See Below!

If you missed our Nordic Night and need to reserve equipment for the 18/19 season, please email or call Paul Perley, General manager at the Ute Mountaineer at paul@utemountaineer or (970) 925.2849 before our pickup dates; Nov 12,13 and Quick read more or view full article 14. Please include: Program your skier is enrolled in, equipment interested in (Fishscale or waxable skis), height, weight and shoe size.

We also require all skiers to have warm clothes (hat, jacket, pants, gloves and buffs). This Saturday October 13th is the Aspen Ski Swap at Aspen Middle School. This is a great place to get gear at a discount for your skiers.
