DAB SKI DAY IS HERE!

All of the details are below, you don’t have to be an all-mountain extreme skier to really enjoy yourself.  If you’re confident on blue runs you’ll fit right in.

Better start getting those legs in shape now!  Robin Whitelaw and Paul Rizzo will graciously be playing tour guide and Robin will be giving out pointers for those interested.  We plan to start the day skiing as one group and depending on the number of people who sign up, we may split up into two groups.  For those of you who want to get in some hardcore skiing, time allowing, Robin and/or Paul will take you for a couple of laps on the iconic black diamond runs at Mary Jane.

After our legs can’t take it anymore, or it’s 2pm we’ll all meet up at the base of Mary Jane for some appetizers and refreshments!  aka Après Ski!

Check out the details below and then RSVP right now … or no later than Friday March 1st!

Here’re the details:

  • Date:  Friday March 8th
  • Location:  Winter Park Resort
  • Skiing ability:  Can confidently ski/ride all blue runs
  • Carpooling:
    We will provide a list of everyone that is open to carpooling
    Carpoolers will plan to meet at the Park and Ride/T-Rex lot in Morrison, CO
    Guaranteed, you’ll know some of your fellow members a heckuva lot better by the time you get back to Denver
  • Breakfast at Goodys Mountain Creperie:
    Be there at 8am sharp (if you want to eat breakfast AND not wait in a long line)
    Great crepes and Bloody Mary’s … and lots of ski stories (some of them true)
    Map: https://g.page/Goodys-Mountain-Creperie?share
  • 1st lift – Gondola:
    If you miss the breakfast then we will be getting on the Gondola no later than 9:30am
    We will gather in-front of the Lift Ticket office (close to the Gondola) to get passes figured out … try to be there by 9am
    If you get there before us, then we are probably on our 2nd Bloody Mary at Goodys … so come get us
    If you arrive at the Gondola AFTER 9:30am we’ll do our best to connect with you on the hill, but that can be tricky … so please try to be on time
  • Lift passes:
    Those that have Winter Park (Ikon) passes will help others get a discounted pass
    Once we know who is coming and who has WP passes, we’ll figure it out
    We won’t expect you to keep your commitment to ski with us unless we can get you a discounted pass (but you’ll need to confirm this BEFORE you arrive at the mountain) 
    Paul will help identify which members have IKON passes and can help you get a discount
  • Parking:
    Click here for a map of parking lots … scroll to the bottom of the page for the map
    G lot is great, the bus will drop you off almost directly in front the Gondola
    If you don’t mind paying $10 then the Vintage lot is an option too and you can hop on the cabriolet lift rather than take a bus
  • Bring water, energy bars and/or snacks:
    As we’re skiing to 2pm this might come in handy
  • Questions:
    Feel free to email Paul Rizzo at paul.rizzo@moodyins.com
  • Who to call if you get confused or are running late:
    Paul:  720 333 5612
    Robin:  303 668 2463

“Giving Denver Kids a Hand Up, Not a Handout”

The Lonnie Porter Leadership Academy was founded in 1996 by Lonnie “Coach” Porter.  In 2006, Chauncey Billups partnered with Coach Porter and the program was renamed the Porter-Billups Leadership Academy (“PBLA”).  PBLA helps youth from at-risk communities who have demonstrated academic and leadership potential to successfully graduate from high school and pursue higher education.  Students enroll in a three-week summer program during the summer before their fourth grade year and continue to attend the academy every summer through their junior year of high school.  Upon completion of the program, graduates who qualify for admission to Regis University are eligible to receive a scholarship to Regis University that covers tuition and fees.  Please join us to learn more about PBLA and how we are inspiring Denver’s young leaders.

Jennifer Clark is a former Denver Public School teacher who found her passion for educating young people was greater than the confines of a standard curriculum.  As a result, she started teaching at PBLA in 2015 and then became the Assistant Director of PBLA in 2017.  Jennifer’s contributions to PBLA have included recruiting students, assembling and leading a diverse faculty, developing a relevant curriculum that focused on overcoming barriers faced by the students, as well as establishing authentic relationships with the students that both support them while they navigate the world we live and while they hone their leadership skills for the future.
