Dear SkiTOPS Members,

Happy holidays to each of you and I wish you and your families good health and good times together in the coming New Year.

Our Industry has been dealing with some challenging times, as you all know so well. Your SkiTOPS board of directors has been working closely with Visit Central Oregon, Visit Bend, Mt. Bachelor and The Riverhouse resort, discussing the current protocols and restrictions in place.

Unfortunately, at this time everyone involved in the planning does not feel that we can successfully hold the Network in Bend this March. We looked closely at dates for later in the Spring or Fall and just do not feel that it is feasible at this time to reschedule in 2021.

We are currently working on cancelling Network with Bend and we will reach out to you soon with rollover policies to move registrations already made to Park City Network 2022. This will ensure that our organization remains intact and can best serve you, our SkiTOPS Members.

We are looking forward to having the next SkiTOPS Network / University in Park City in March of 2022. SkiTOPS will be hosting more Steep Thoughts and local mixers in various locations in the coming months, so please plan to attend. We look forward to seeing everyone's faces soon.

We hope to reschedule Network / University 2023 in Bend and we will have more information on this in the coming months.
