Waterville Valley’s senior ski club, the Silver Streaks – the longest running senior skiing program in the country – is gearing up for another great season of skiing fun and camaraderie. Unlike some “senior” programs, you don’t have to be particularly “senior” to join the Silver Streaks. Membership is open to anyone over the age of 50!
Below is an update and introductory welcome from Silver Streaks program coordinator, Lori Fernandes.
~ Alpine Silver Streaks – First day is Monday, Dec. 10. The Alpine Streaks meet Monday-Thursday (non-holiday) from 8 a.m. to 12 noon. Meet on the second floor of the base lodge near the cafeteria. Look for the signs. The program does not meet December 24-27, 2018, January 21, 2019 or February 18-21, 2019.
~ Alpine Ski Storage – Lori is hopeful that the Streaks’ storage area will be completed within the next two weeks. It will be the same area/closet as last year. Once a door and lock have been installed, Lori will let you know the code. There is no equipment storage available earlier than December 10.
~ Nordic Silver Streaks – First day is Wednesday, Dec. 5. The Nordic Streaks meet-up at the Nordic Center in Town Square every Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. Gigi Estes is the Nordic Streaks program director and most weeks she writes up a lovely summary of their gathering, which I share on my blog.
~ First Post Skiing Party – Wednesday, Dec. 12, from 3-5 p.m. at Lori’s home on Flat Mountain Road. Bring food, a snack or drinks to share.
