SKI SCHOOL IS VERY OVER FOR THE 2014 SEASON!

THANKS FOR A WONDERFUL & WEATHERFUL SEASON!!

IT WAS A VERY SUCCESSFUL SEASON BECAUSE OF YOU ALL.

THIS SATURDAY IS OUR YEAR END CELEBRATION -

HOPE YOU CAN BE THERE! 

Greetings Powderpig Instructors!

  This last weekend had everything in it, especially sunshine, and it was a great weekend for the conclusion of lessons.  Everyone seemed to go home with a big smile on their face.  Thank you all for that! 

This coming Saturday, March 29th, is the year end celebration for the staff so, come on up!  Our year end celebration is traditionally a visit to New Orleans via a traditional Louisiana Boil-  which happens at about 5 PM.  Many people come up earlier in the day to ski at Alpental and at Central.  It is a fun day.  See below for directions about what to bring for the boil.  After the boil, we will have the annual, traditional 2x4 awards, and weather permitting, our newly traditional modified bonfire in a bowl.  If you have nominations for these awards please send them to Nancy at <thinksnow@powderpigs.com>.  all nominations are welcome. 

This Saturday is the

Year End Celebration -

THE BOIL!

Boil Master Mike

will be at the helm, once again!

For each participant, please bring: 2 lbs of frozen Shrimp - Raw, tail on, 31-40 count.  Costco has VERY good deals on 2 lb. bags of RAW, TAIL ON "31-40 count" FROZEN shrimp.

 

Safeway also does a very good job.   This is the only way we know of to be sure to have anywhere near the right amount of shrimp. We will provide the rest of the accoutrements for the boil. If you are not fond of shrimp or spicy food, bring what you would like to throw on the BBQ.  We will have that fired up just in case.  One more thing please bring whatever you would like to drink. We will have sodas for the kids (of all ages), but if you would like anything else, please bring it! This is a BYODrinkables so you will have exactly what you like" affair. Please make sure the state of Washington agrees with your choice of beverage.  Bring your sleeping bag if you are going to drink the "big people" stuff. Questions? Email Nancy at thinksnow@powderpigs.com.

 

It is time to take all your beloved belongings home with you.  You may NOT leave anything up here after this coming weekend.  Do not plan on coming up later to get your stuff.  We will probably not be here to let you in to get it.   Stuff that is left, will be donated to Good Will.  So, don't get mad if your skis or board is/ are gone because you didn't take them home with you at the end of the season.   The Area insists we clear everything out the Pigpen at the end of the season and they have already reminded us of this, this year.  This year they sounded extra serious about it and,  because of this,  we must be too.  It is hard work to clear out a bunch of other people's belongings from the Pigpen - when they just get left behind.  I don't have that kind of energy this year, so please, remember to take it all home with you!  Thanks in advance for your help with this.  Oh, and in case you decide to donate your stuff, Good Will thanks you for your kind donations!  Good Will appreciates your kind generosity.

 

NOW, ESPECIALLY AT THIS TIME OF YEAR:  IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER!  Never ever leave anything you want to be able to take home with you in your car.  Not even for a few minutes.  There are nefarious individuals who haunt the parking lots looking for gear and electronics, $$ and credit cards to rip off. Especially at this time of year.   In this tweaky economy, I expect these entrepreneurial wanna bees who used to mess with us so regularly,  will probably reappear to try to harvest us again.  So, please don't leave anything in your car - hidden or not (they know how to find your treasures!) You are now forewarned - again!

 

 

     

 

REMEMBER YOUR SEASON PASS!
