Great news for winter enthusiasts! The Mount Martin Ski Club is planning on opening for the 2020/2021 season and volunteers are busy preparing. Knowing that many indoor sports have been put on hold this year, skiing at MMSC is one sport that can take place without the need to go into an interior space at all. Volunteers are constructing a deck outside the club that will give access to a concession window for lift pass and snack purchases. The clubhouse will have one-way access and will be divided into seating sections for a small number of people. The ski patrol has received lengthy additional training on COVID protocols and PPE use and is all set to keep those on the hill safe.
Membership purchase is being encouraged as this gives skiers the flexibility of coming for brief periods of time, multiple times a week, with never having to enter the chalet. In the event that Covid-19 prevents us from opening or the season, we will offer a refund of paid-up memberships.
We are still planning for both a ski & snowboard lesson program this year with high hopes we will be able to run. A little extra work is going into organizing & training to ensure the safety of both students & instructors.
MMSC lessons are a 4 week session that usually start in January (snow depending) with registration starting late November/Early December. We also offer private lessons upon request.
In these uncertain times please remember that despite all the time & effort put into organizing these programs, Covid may prevent us from running them.
MMSC operates on a very slim budget but with the help of volunteers, grants and donations is hoping to make this a memorable ski season.
Stay tuned for more info.
