This is my fourth year as a member at NTSC and I wish I’d joined earlier. The people, the skiing, the lessons, the fun, the trips and the convenience make for a great overall experience. This volunteer club runs better than some businesses I encounter!
My own ski journey started when I was seven as a new immigrant. Yes, I wore leather lace up boots and rode wooden skis with bear trap bindings. But skiing got put aside for numerous other activities and I left the slopes for over 30 years. One of my daughters wanted to try and after renting better equipment than I’d ever owned we both had a lesson (an interesting concept – who knew!) the journey started for her and restarted for me.
It’s a great challenge to continue to improve and fun to enjoy the slopes. I’ve now skied in 23 countries, combining my loves of meeting people, travelling and skiing. There have been surprises, hiccups and disappointments, but the snow beckons!
I am very honoured to contribute to the wellbeing of the club as part of the Board and working with a very strong team. I Iook forward to meeting and talking with members about our club and how we can continue to provide an excellent experience.
