Hello Achievers,

Next Important Date: Nov 23rd (Tuesday) – General Meeting

The first student trip is less than a month away, please mark your calendar to attend the general meeting on Nov 23rd.  Bring your membership forms/fees, evaluation forms, and trip forms.  If you’re planning on staying at Viewpoint condo, they are now requiring that we provide at least 2 weeks notice; as such, we have to get your reservation and payment by Nov 23rd.  We’re working on updating the trip forms, that will be forthcoming shortly. 

Please remember membership forms are due now, you can send the forms and payment to Karen Lunzman, or scan your forms and send via email. (or drop them off at the General Meeting)

If you are a new “instructor”, please remember you’ll need to go through a background check; the cost is paid by the group, and it’s easy as clicking on a link, and putting in the below registration number. This needs to be done every two years.  Please do this as early as possible as the process can take 30 days. http://www.ncsisafe.com/ Enter self registration number: 29771900

2010 Ski-a-thon

March 16th, 2010

image

What another great weekend we had at Mammoth for the Ski-a-Thon. We had a lot of students, families & instructors come up on the trip.

Since we have had more interest from students wanting to snowboard, Karey put on a great snowboard clinic on Friday morning for our snowboarding instructors. We put on a full day of lessons on Saturday before a well deserved Pot-Luck dinner. Come Sunday morning Brent had setup a challenging slalom course straight down the toughest part of Sesame Street.

I don’t know who was the fastest or who made the most runs, one thing is for sure everyone had a good time. Enjoy the pictures Bernhard & Karen sent in.

Mammoth to Host Olympic Qualifying Event January 8-10

December 21st, 2009

Shaun White celebrates winning the Olympic halfpipe gold medal in 2006 at the Turin Games in Italy.

Mammoth Mountain will host part of the qualifying competitions on the weekend of January 8-10, 2009 as part of the Grand Prix Series of snowboarding. The Grand Prix Series determines who the US will be sending to the Winter Olympics this February in Vancouver British Columbia. The series has already started at Copper Mountain, Colorado on Dec 11-12 with american men & women taking 5 of the 6 podium spots. The final decisions will be made in Park City on the weekend of January 22-23.

I bring this up because this event coincides with our next student trip to Mammoth, this will be a great opportunity to see some of the best in the world competing right in front of the Main Lodge.

DSES Opens Thrift Store in Mammoth

December 21st, 2009

     Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra has opened a thrift store at the Mammoth Mall in the corner behind the Chart House on Old Mammoth Road. Bernhard had the opportunity to check out the store on the last trip. His son Lucas had an ‘equipment malfunction’… one of his boots broke. After checking the rental rates Bernhard made a quick trip down to the store & was able to pickup a pair of used boots at a very reasonable price, cheaper than renting for the weekend.

     Bernhard also mentioned that there is quite a variety of items available from clothes to equipment. This is a great resource for families or someone just starting out, follow the link below to find out more about it.

December Trip Highlights

December 19th, 2009

Gary sent over some pictures and wrote up some highlights from the trip last weekend. Seems they got a little snow.

      Had an interesting time with the trailer on Saturday. At the end of the day it was buried under about two feet of snow. That wasn’t to bad until a loader came by and left a huge berm of snow (probably about 6 feet) right in front of the trailer. We had to dig about four tons of snow before we could get a possible angle to hitch the trailer. Probably took about 45 minutes to do what we usually do in 10.

     The last picture is from Viewpoint Sunday morning. The snow was pretty heavy and wet, especially in town. It froze overnight and we couldn’t open the doors on the Suburban. The whole truck was coated with about a half inch of ice. It was still snowing pretty hard, with pretty heavy winds Sunday morning. After consulting with Brent and Secretary Bernhard we  decided it would be best to keep everybody in and call it a day. 

     All in all it was a great trip. Al continues to tackle more difficult terrain. Reo and Ia both seemed to enjoy the outing.

2009 Instructor Trip is Canceled

November 16th, 2009

We did have some interest in the upcoming Instructor Trip, but alas we are going to have to cancel the event. Due to the limited terrain that is open, we thought it best to postpone our instructor training. We will work our Instructor clinics into the next few trips.

The next trip on the weekend of December 11th-13th will be our first student trip of the season. The general meeting to be held prior to this trip will be held on November the 25th at 7PM.

Think Snow!
