Woo Hoo!!! A full week of skiing packed-powder conditions under sunny blue skies. It was an awesome trip for skiers and non-skiers alike! With it’s blue sunny skies, snowy white slopes, pretty pine forests and the picturesque blue Lake Tahoe, Heavenly has got to be one of the most beautiful ski resorts in the world. 33 Space Coast Ski & Travel Club friends enjoyed this wonderful Florida Ski Council (FSC) week with 11 other Florida ski clubs. It was a great week of fun with skiing, parties, après ski, gambling and sightseeing. Our rooms at Harvey’s Casino Hotel were newly renovated and very spacious.

On Sunday we had a fun social get-together at a nearby funky locals’ bar called South of North Brewery. We enjoyed the beer, wine, light appetizers and much laughter. Monday night was the FSC Welcome Party with a very good dinner, drink coupons and dancing. Several from our club really did us proud on the dance floor, especially our women. On Tuesday a large group of us traveled to Northstar and enjoyed skiing there. A shout-out to racer Cindy B. (John Hughes, Tom Engler and Jim Frye will understand). On Wednesday several from our club went on the Virginia City/Bonanza Saloon Tour. They enjoyed seeing a historic western town as it was many years ago.

Thursday was the FSC “T” Theme Party where most of us dressed up as Tacky Tourists, Stacey Burgett’s idea. Marilyn and Ozzie Webster dressed as an Oral B toothbrush and a Crest toothpaste tube, respectively, and won the FSC Best Couple costume award (over 350 attendees). Angel Hall and Kevin Spencer not only looked extremely tacky, they also acted the tacky tourist part by asking for directions and taking pictures. Other Tacky Tourist standouts included Bob and Nancy Brozman, Jori Huges, John and Patty Windhorst, Brenda and Mickey Weed, Lydia and Jeff Swalchick, Bob and Ellen Parda as Thing 1 and Thing 2 and the cutest set of twins, Gail Berger and Cindy Thorneburg. Thanks to all who took time to dress up. We had a lot of fun and laughs!

Friday brought another blue sky day wrapping up a wonderful week in Heavenly. Please see our pictures to see all of the fun members that went on this wonderful trip.
