Our Monthly General Meetings

The October meeting featured talks about new equipment, ski conditioning exercises, and club sponsored ski trips.


The November meeting, sponsored by Puritan and held at the Puritan Store on Main Street Hyannis featured THE PURITAN FASHION SHOW

The Puritan Ski department in the Hyannis store has the latest technology in ski tuning and offers seasonal rental programs for children and adults with a buy-out opportunity at the end of the season.  Due to the poor ski season last year, they have great deals on last year's equipment.

Ski Area News

THE U.S. IS NOW THE MOST POPULAR SKI DESTINATION IN THE WORLD
Poor snow in France has resulted in the United States becoming the world’s favorite ski destination during the 2015-16 season. According to the data from the French ski industry authority, Domaines Skiables de France, the US had a 6 % hike to 53.9 million skier days, and French had 52 million -- about three percent less than the past year. The United States held the top spot from 2008 to 2011. But, for the past four years, France has been fiercely boasting the top spot. France continues to be the top ski destination in Europe, however. Austria ended its ski season with 49.9 million -- 4 percent below last year. However, the coming season may bring some good news for Europe as US visitors are likely to increase due to the favorable exchange rates.


WATERVILLE VALLEY ADDS 10 NEW RUNS
Patrick Thorne, The Snow Hunter, reports that, Waterville Valley in New Hampshire is working on the first phase of its Green Peak Expansion project which will see 10 new trails cut to provide 45 new acres of skiing and riding this season, serviced by a fixed grip chairlift.  This will be Waterville Valley Resort’s biggest expansion project in more than 30 years.
