Snowsports Academy 2019Last year the Academy was a resounding success, so much so this year we have extended the Academy to offer a Saturday session. In our rush to arrange more instructors and time slots we have created two issues that has caused confusion within members with one slot seemingly already oversubscribed. Firstly our ticket system (Liftopia) went live before we let everyone know and secondly we sent an email to all those on last years waitlist, not just all members which caused confusion. We are very sorry about this. The good news is there are limited spaces across all of the products. To rectify this we have removed the ability to book while we update the website and inform members. Bookings will reopen on the Monday the 15th April at 9.00am with the new Saturday morning programme included. This will be first in first served. You can see more details on the Academy here and any questions to James and Kate here.
Summer Work Parties.We have more details on our works parties online here. Suffice to say with all the activity going on there is plenty to clean up and we want to ensure the field is looking great for opening day. To register for work parties please email James here.
Club AGM @ Wairau River WinesThanks to Wairau River Wines for hosting us again this year. Thanks to everyone who came along and provided feedback. You can now see the audited accounts and minutes online here. During the AGM there was feedback on communication and our email newsletters. We are having issues with Mail Chimp so we have added a newsletter section to our website here and we will add to facebook when we send out a newsletter for people to look in the junk files. We also had feedback on the timing of our season pass sales, member only pass, the family pass and the ability to pay for a pass over installments. We have taken those on board and you will see some positive changes with our new POS system next year. We also had questions on a chairlift. To confirm it is NOT in the current roadmap we will look at a new lift once we have completed the road, snowmaking and parking projects.
