February Elk/Montage Mountain Ski Trips-
We had a great day skiing at Elk Wed Feb 16, 2022 even though their quad lift was down. All eight of us had a great day with plenty of sunshine, great snow, and fun terrain. We were joined by 2 UBSC members and one NPSC member joined the Upper Bucks Ski Club group at Montage the day before.



Telluride CO Trip
The Jan 29 Snowstorm in Philly cancelled our flight until Monday Jan 31 so we only got in 4 days of skiing. But the weather and snow cooperated while we were at Telluride and the skiing and scenery were spectacular. Two cold days and two beautiful bluebird skiing days were enjoyed by all. Many members went on a snowmobiling trip on Wednesday. Others visited the Telluride Museum and downtown and learned what the Galloping Goose was about. We all had fun at the Welcome Dinner Monday night, Lunch at Gorrono Ranch on the Mountain Tuesday, and Farewell Dinner on Thursday. Race day was on Tuesday and we had at least one team compete. Participants should have received an email explaining how to post photos from the trip to their profile and then the photos will be viewable under Photo Albums
Check it out! Let's see those photos. Post your best 12 or so photos.If you want to see how to post photos by creating a Photo Album see our FAQ   NPSC Telluride Colorado Feb 2022
All participants are grateful for the hard work put in by our trip leaders Laura Miller and Pete Ryan. Thanks for keeping the trip running smoothly while lots of travel curve-balls came your way!!

NPSC apparently successfully dodged the COVID virus at the EPSC Winter Carnival at Telluride.

This cartoon originally appeared in the Feb 3 Philadelphia Inquirer (with sign showing Olympic Logo).


Thankfully we also dodged casualties except that Lisa Ruff's coat got a 6" hole melted in the nylon by the bus's heater on the way to the airport.
