Hello SkiTOPS Members!|
The Board of Directors and Staff held our annual meeting virtually this week and we wanted to give you some updates on what direction we are heading in the future.
September Network / University Cancelled
We have decided to cancel the September Network / University in Park City this fall. We took a hard look at the restrictions in place in Utah and the challenges of hosting our event safely for you and decided cancelling was the best decision for our organization.
2021 - Mt. Bachelor, Oregon
Now that we are forgoing 2020 we are happy to announce the location for Network / University 2021, Bend / Mt. Bachelor, Oregon! Please save the dates of Sunday, March 28 - Thursday, April 1, 2021 at Riverhouse on the Deschutes. The community and resort have gotten together and are excited to show us an amazing time!
If you registered/paid for Network / University 2020, SkiTOPS will roll over your registration payment to the 2021 event. There will be an increase in registration fees for 2021 but when rolling over your registration payment, you will not be required to pay the increase.
Mark Your Calendars
We know membership has its privileges! To that end we will be offering a series of live calls to keep everyone up to date on what is happening with your companies. This FIRST "Steep Thoughts by SkiTOPS" Zoom Call will be held Thursday, August 13th at 3:00 pm MDT. More details to follow, we hope you can join us.
2022 Park City Part Deux
Since we have cancelled Park City 2020 we are happy to let you know we are planning to return to the resort for Network / University 2022! Please keep the dates of Sunday, March 20 - Thursday, March 24, 2022 available. We can't thank Vail Resorts and their partners enough for all the time and effort they put into planning for 2020 and know they will exceed our expectations for 2022!
Lastly we would like you to know that the Social Committee is already in the planning stages for networking events to be held this fall keeping in line with local social restrictions. Keep an eye out for dates and locations to be announced but a few ideas we are pursuing: Park City, Lake Tahoe and Colorado.
We thank you for being an integral part of our organization during these challenging times and we hope you remain healthy and safe!
With gratitude and good health,
Rick Reichsfeld, SkiTOPS President
