President's December 30th, 2017 Blog


Let’s hope y’all had a very Merry Christmas 2017!

Our calendar year is almost at an end and 2018 is at the door.  Yet, the ski season has just begun, we just had a White Christmas, have gone to Whistler December 8 – 11 and there are so many more ski trips ahead.

January 7th, two ski trips leave the Vancouver/ Victoria Area.  Ten of us are off to Romania to ski the Transylvanian Alps for 14 days.  On the same day, a different group is off to Silver Star for a 5 night ski vacation.  Nathalie has one ticket for the Silver Star trip, January 7-12, 2018, so it is not Sold Out. Contact: Nathalie Laurence 8nathalie8@gmail.com or Ron Stengler: r.stengler@gmail.com

I would like to thank everyone who participated for the great effort of raising $544.00 for the Christmas Bureau.  It went to families with the most need and was appreciated more that you can imagine.  Congratulations to Doreen Smith, who, through her generous donations to the Pub Crawl and the Christmas Bureau drive, won the draw.  All prizes and gifts for the Christmas Bureau Pub Crawl and Christmas Party were donated by: Gothic-Horror.com and 100% of the money collected went to the Greater Vancouver Christmas Bureau.  A job well done!!!

If you joined the ski club to snowboard or ski, come on and get on board(s)!  Click on pacificskiclub.com and pick out a ski trip and give the coordinator listed a call or e-mail.  It is just that easy, but you must be a member of the ski club to participate. No exceptions.

Ski y’all in the New Year!

Sven, Pacific Ski Club President

PSC Christmas Party January 21, 2017


"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas," especially in the higher elevations and at my place on the North Pole(North Delta).  We had over 3cm of fresh snow by 12:30 today and it's expected to continue until about 20:40 tonight.  With cooler dry air expected over the next few days, we could well have snow on the ground for our 2017 Pacific Ski Club Christmas Party.
Pacific Ski Club Christmas Party,
Thursday, December 21st, 2017
TOBY's Pub, 2733 Commercial Drive, Vancouver.
Time 6:30pm.

Bring your best Christmas spirit and attire.  There will be prizes for the best Male & Female Christmas outfit as well as several others, including our wine draw.

Bonus - We will be raffling off the tax receipt for the Christmas Bureau donation of 2017.  With the PSC members who came along on our Annual Christmas Bureau Pub Crawl, and the help of other members since, we handed $474.00 to the Greater Vancouver Christmas Bureau last Friday.  This is the minimum value to the Tax Receipt that will be issued to the winner of that draw.  To be in the pot, you need to donate a minimum of $10.00 to our charity drive this Thursday.  All donations for that draw on December 21, 100% of it, also goes to the Christmas Bureau and will add to that pot.  We already have one member in that draw through Richard's generous donation.  Take the time to help those in need.
