It’s summer and time to head for the Beach. Join us for our annual beach outing at Will Rogers State Beach, which if you don’t know is just south of where Entrada ends at Pacific Coast Highway. Look for the Arriba banner on the sand near the southern most set of beach volleyball courts, just north of the beach club. The club will provide KFC and drinks. Please bring a side, snack or dessert to share. RSVP by June 23 to Rhonda at Social@arribaski.org
Our End of Season Party will be in Venice this time. Join us for some great company, good food and drink. The evite has already been sent out to all members. If you haven’t received the info, contact your social chair, Rhonda at Social@arribaski.org to get all the details.
We are pleased to announce our Aspen Gay Ski Week Trip. This is a four night trip, leaving Wednesday, January 18 and returning on Sunday January 22, 2017. This is your chance to experience the longest running gay ski week in America with its apres skis, comedy night, downhill costume contest, parties (including its fabulous pool party on Saturday night), and I almost forgot – great skiing in Colorado powder at 4 different resorts.
Please note that there will be only one chance to sign up – due to the short time between this announcement and the trip, the sign up deadline is November 11, just a few weeks away. I have attached a description of the trip and a sign up form to this e-mail. To sign up, e-mail your sign up form to Moises at email@example.com or mail your form to the Arriba P.O. Box (P.O. Box 69611, West Hollywood, CA 90069). Also, mail your deposit check, payable to the “Arriba Ski Club” to the P.O Box.
We are excited to start the new ski season with our annual Season Kick Off Party! Come hear about all the great trips we have planned for this season. We will be taking sign ups for trips so bring your checkbooks!
We are holding the party in the early afternoon to take advantage of the pool so bring your swimsuits and sunscreen. Also, seating is limited so please bring a beach chair to lounge on.
The club will provide a main dish (chicken) as well as drinks. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share.
Evites have already been sent out. Please RSVP by September 26

There’s been a slew of season extensions this week, from Aspen Mountain adding a bonus weekend to A-Basin announcing they will keep the lifts turning through June 12. But Mammoth has trumped everyone with the announcement that they will remain open daily through July 4.
Mammoth’s 361 inches of snow and 130-inch base at the summit are to thank for the long season. Starting on June 6th operating hours will shift to 7:30 am to 1:00 pm to take advantage of the best conditions.
