BULK TICKETS – One Last Chance – November 22nd Deadline

Posted: Tuesday, October 25th, 2016
Hello All Riverhillers

There were many members who didn’t make the cut-off for submitting the upcoming seasons bulk ticket orders, so I asked (and probably many other clubs) and in my mail box this morning was the following:


Please read carefully and observe the time submittal cutoffs dates.

Anyone who wants to order more tickets can do so for the SOUTHERN TIER AREAS only!   The rates are the same as the first order submittal.  Use the same order form that is posted on our club website!   Remember this is for the SOUTHERN TIER AREAS only! 
CT Ski Council Bulk Ticket Voucher Order Forms  are posted online on the RHSC website at


When:  Your orders MUST be in the hands of Kathy & Bob Hener by sundown TUESDAY,NOVEMBER 22…………mail or hand in your orders to:

Kathy and Bob Hener
470 Stratford Road, Stratford, CT 06615 (in Lordship)

Phone: 203-375-3942

Please email us if you are interested. This is a very busy time of year for us and I can start the paperwork ahead of my cut off time for submitting to the CSC.  Thank you!

Note Kath’s office in Stamford is relocating.  In the past that has been a convenient drop off point.  The move is scheduled for the same time as the due date SO her office will not be available as a drop off/collection point

Make your check for the tickets out to “RHSC”.
Remember: there is no guarantee that unused tickets will be eligible for refunds or credits.  All sales are subject to the rules and regulations of the CSC ticket sales program!  Rules of the program are noted on the bulk ticket order form.
“This bulk ticket program is intended only for use of bona fide members of the Connecticut Ski Council and immediate family. Ticket guidelines will be strictly adhered to in order to maintain the integrity of this program. Bulk tickets will only be sold to CSC ski clubs with proper identification.  Distribution of these tickets through other avenues will result in forfeiture of this bulk ticket program and other future programs. These tickets are good for the 2016 – 2017 ski season and a percentage of unused tickets may be returned for credit toward the purchase of bulk tickets for the 2017-2018 ski season.”
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions.


A second SECOND CHANCE.  If you are interested in tickets for SUNDAY RIVER or SUGARLOAF you must contact me IMMEDIATELY!  This is a rush rush deal the CSC just posted!  Call us or email us immediately, don’t hesitate!

Mattress Selection Letter

Posted: Saturday, October 8th, 2016
Dear RHSC Members,
As a follow up to the September general meeting and the vote for the purchase of new mattresses for the Lodge, we are asking all members to participate in the selection process.
After reviewing many mattresses, the board has narrowed it down to four options. At the bottom of this email, you will be asked to click on the link and submit your vote by Friday, October 14th at 5PM.
We will address all questions on the topic at the next general meeting which will be Tuesday, October 11th at 7:30 at the Long Ridge Tavern in Stamford.
Here are some important details to consider while casting your vote:
1. All the pertinent information on the mattress options is provided on a spreadsheet on this link: http://www.riverhillsskiclub.org/mattress-options-rhsc-10-8-r1/
2. Since the beds at the lodge are used less than 30% of the time versus the typical use of a mattress, the beds will last much longer than the warranties listed.
3. These beds have been tested by multiple members and board members and are different types at different price points.
4. Per the general meeting, mattresses were approved with a budget of up to $12,000 with up to $6k coming from the club budget and up to $6k coming from membership in the form of a small assessment. (Please attend Tuesday’s meeting for more details)
Please click here to cast your vote:
Thank you to those that collected the quotes and did the research!
See you at the General Meeting on Tuesday.
Have a great weekend.
Rod Cross, President
