SLY FOX SKI & SNOWBOARD CLUB LOOKS BACK TO THE PAST 2014-2015 SEASON.
LAST TRIP OF THE SEASON TO BANFF, CANADA, March 19-23. It was a great way to finish the ski season with a trip to wonderful skiing, lodging and most of all friends, having fun!
Friday, Feb. 13-15 was our Marquette Mountain Trip. Great food on the way up and fun at the Irish Bar ended our travels on Friday. Arriving at Marquette Mountain on Sat. we walked into a mound of racer bodies. Some lifts were closed due to high winds. Some decided to take the day off & enjoy the entertainment. Sat. night we had fun in Marquette after a dip in the hot tub along with a wine & cheese party. Sunday we were back to normal with Nastar races & lunch on the hill. One last libation before leaving was our shot ski, impressing some college students at the mountain. Fun was had by all.
REMARKABLE TRIP JAN. 24-FEB. 3 TO DAVOS, SWITZERLAND & VENICE, ITALY. Lead by our experience trip leader, Sam Fontaine we enjoyed beautiful vistas at the top of Davos along with the opening of “Carnavale” in Venice and much more. If you have never joined the Ski Club on their trips, you are missing an opportunity to experience great memories and new friends.
A GREAT TIME & SKIING was had by all on BIG SNOW trip Jan. 9-11. The back of the full bus had a lively card game up to Bessmer. With sub sandwiches, beverages, chocochip cookies along with jello & pudding shots added to the fun. We continued the fun when arriving at Indianhead. The ski conditions were great with plenty of corduroy and pleasant weather conditions at both mountains. Indianhead Lodge treated us to yummy breakfasts & dinner.

Finally, on a sad note, I must inform you of the recent deaths of two long time Sly Fox members. Bruce Merholtz passed away on June 22. Old timers will remember Bruce from the 80’s.
Also we have been informed that Willard Marfleet, who always joined us on our Western trips, even though he lived in the Vancouver, BC area and later, Mexico and Arizona, passed away after a short illness. On a personal note, Willard was one of my roommates on my first Western Trip to Breckenridge in 1988. I especially remember when he hosted a boat party for all the participants on our 1995 trip to Whistler Blackcomb. Willard owned a charter boat company in Vancouver and we spent the day touring Vancouver Harbor with plentiful refreshments. His crew commented, “Can’t believe they drank all that beer!” Our condolences to his wife, Judy Bishop, and his brother and Sly Fox member, Dave. We are going back to Whistler next season.
