Austin, Dallas, Lone Star, Space City, Tulsa, and Los Amigos hit the slopes to explore the vast terrain and gorgeous
views for which Big Sky is named.
The new “spa-like” 8-passenger Ramcharger lift with its
very comfortable, covered, heated seats will definitely spoil you and your back side. That evening we gathered for a welcome party at the Huntley Lodge where we enjoyed fabulous food, drinks and good company.
Several TSC club members visited Yellowstone National Park on Monday and Tuesday via snowcoach and snowmobile tours.
The beauty of this natural geological wonder during winter is breathtaking and a must see if you are in the area.
Race day started early Wednesday morning giving us the exciting opportunity to race on one of the steepest Nastar courses in the country! While it was a bit challenging for many of us it was a blast! Dave Belz and the Big Sky race department did a great job keeping it running smoothly.
On Thursday evening, we recognized top racers and winning clubs during our awards ceremony and a special tribute to Gene Gillum was presented by Rollo Gurss in recognition of Gene’s contributions to the Texas Ski Council. The evening celebration continued with a fabulous dinner and dancing until late. The Big Sky banquet staff did a wonderful job of impressing our 158 participants with a delicious and abundant spread.
A special thanks goes out to Josh Pelczar and the Big Sky staff for hosting our ski week in style,
Marcie Hawks with Ski.com for working her magic and finally every trip leader for their dedication in making this trip a BIG success!
