Assume that you need to enter a week in advance, but a lot of club races will allow entries on the day.
End of Season, Start of Summer, & Double Birthday Bash!
Sunday July 18th 2016
This special day will be a big ski party to celebrate the end of our 2nd full season since the re-opening of the PYB slope in Oct 2014, to welcome in the summer months, and more importantly we'll be celebrating the coming of age (80 each) of two of our most respected and long time club instructors and members.
Both Bryn Brooks and Alan Hughes have contributed and been involved in the club for a great number of years and both have a wealth of experience and
numerous tales to tell.
We're proud that they have remained involved for so many years and hope that you will join us for this special party day and activities.
The day will include various skiing, boarding and tubing activities, as well as films, food, music, and 2nd hand kit sale.
More details to come but mark it in your diary now in preparation!
Party on dudes!
