The 2017/ 18 Ski Season & Our Annual General Meeting

What a great ski season it was, and we must thank our Sister Club, the Victoria Alpine Ski Club, for much of the work in bringing these excellent ski trip to fruition.

The PSC started off with a December Legends ski trip, then on January 7th members from both ski clubs left for Romania and our 2018 Ski Europe Trip.  Arriving on the orthodox church's Christmas Day, we were able to enjoy a second Christmas dinner at the local hotel in Transylvania.  A live band, a dance floor, a very tall decorated Christmas tree and a very short time to order food before the kitchen closed for the night was the order of the first evening.  

Poiana Brasov saw little in fresh snow, but they had many new lifts which were not there when we last visited in 2004.  Sinaia had so much new snow that the lifts were closed for a few days so that they could shovel out.
Many of us toured Brasov, Transylvania’s capitol with the Black Church, the aerial tram, the St. Catherine’s Gate, the Town Hall and its Christmas market.  We also took in Rasanov and Bran Castles, both from the 14th Century.  All in all, it was a most memorable journey to one of the most eastern parts of Europe, excluding Turkey, where they have ski resorts.  Yes, Romania is still many years back from what modern Canadian ski resorts are, but they are moving forward and things are much better than they were just a few years ago.

There was a Nelson, White Water and a Rossland, Red Mountain interior ski trip, a Whistler week-long trip and four more three day trips to Whistler, the last being back at Legends in April.  You can still hit the slopes at Blackcomb as the glaciers are open until late June!
