Welcome Back!

Welcome to the 2020/2021 season. As we open the season, I would like to say thank you to all of our returning members for your support and dedication to the club. I would also like to thank the MSSC Board, who spent many hours during the summer and fall working through a number of scenarios and discussions on how to best deal with the current restrictions. Despite our efforts to create some semblance of normalcy here at the club, this is unquestionably going to be an atypical year.

We obviously cannot provide the same level of benefits many of you have come to expect and enjoy, and I’m sure there is some disappointment and/or frustration around that. But since its inception in the early seventies, MSSC has always been a dedicated and unswerving community and its times like this that really illustrate the importance and value of such a group of people. We of course anticipate this is all temporary; we have every intention of returning to the “old ways” as soon as we are able: tables, coffee, lunch with friends and family, naps in the lounge, our fantastic social events – and it is your support now that makes the future all the more possible. So as we navigate through the season, we thank you in advance for your patience, understanding, and recognition that we are doing our very best. So far, members have been very respectful of our policies, and we appreciate everyone’s willingness to comply. It certainly makes our job easier!

Over the past couple of months you should have received a series of communications regarding our modified operational plan for the season. But to recap the most important points:

1. Masks/face coverings are mandatory. When you are in the building, you MUST have a face covering.

2. Members will physically distance between themselves and others outside of their family/cohort.

3. Members will regularly use provided hand sanitation stations.

4. Members will follow delineated routes for entering and exiting the building, as well as observe and respect defined space restrictions.

5. Due to capacity limits, members will limit their time inside the building; this will allow all members an opportunity to have access to the amenities we are able to offer.

6. Members agree to monitor their health, the health of their family, follow public health guidelines, and make appropriate decisions.

7. Members recognize that guests of any sort are prohibited inside the building.

8. Children under 16 years of age are to be supervised by an adult at all times.

Our cleaning team is on-site daily and doing a phenomenal job keeping the building clean and sanitized. You can feel confident knowing Briana and her crew are being very thorough in order to make the space safe to enter. Also, just a reminder that the Competitor’s Locker Room is closed to our young skiers and riders this season, so families please do not store your children’s gear in these lockers.

Over the next week, we will be installing a simple check-in system called Who’s On Location. This will allow us to meet the requirement to monitor capacity and also help us keep a pulse on building use. We will make this process as easy and user-friendly as possible, but ask that members make a concerted effort to check in and check out as they enter and exit the building. Details on how to use this basic system will be forthcoming shortly.

While all the preparations and discussions around COVID have capitalized our time and attention, over the summer and fall we were also able to accomplish a handful of projects around the building. We replaced the remaining large lockers, allowing us to complete the locker room renovation we started last year. In addition, we extended the rubber flooring down the hall leading to the competitor locker room, replaced the stairs leading to the deck, and painted the deck. We were also able to tick off all our annual upkeep tasks: a handful of minor repairs due to regular wear and tear, as well as window, boiler, and carpet cleaning. Overall, the building is in great shape, and I am really happy with all the upgrades we've completed over the past few years.

As the weather continues to cool we expect more terrain to open and conditions to improve, and we look forward to seeing more of you out on the mountain. We will also do our best to communicate as often as possible so that you have the latest information regarding the status of the club. In the meantime, please feel free to reach out with any questions, concerns, or suggestions – we are always open to constructive input and feedback!

Once again, thank you for your continued support and commitment to our club and community.
