Latest River Hills COVID-19 response

Posted: Tuesday, March 24th, 2020

Dear River Hills,  Who would have imagined how quickly our world could change?  Just over a week ago I was skiing and now we are all in virtual lockdown!  I trust that all of you are coping well with these continued and escalating Corona associated trends. These are definitely challenging times, please do take care of yourselves and stay safe/sane!   If you haven’t seen the latest from Killington, the Resort operations are suspended until further notice. In response, River Hills will be extending the cancelation of existing reservations through the weekend of April 11, we will continue to assess the situation and will make decisions, on possible extension, based on the best information available.   That said, we have other important work that needs to be done. 

  • Return remaining Bulk tickets.  
  • CSC has been in touch with the ski resorts and has requested an increase in the allowable percentage of tickets we return for credit. Some resorts seem ready to allow full credit for all returns, a few are still deciding.  As you know, there is never a guarantee, so keep your fingers crossed and CSC will notify us of the final outcome.  
  • In the meantime, please gather your tickets and forward to Susan Brown by April 25th @ 170 Pemburn Dr, Fairfield CT 06824
  • If you have tickets in your bin at the lodge, please reply directly and let us know. We will be taking one trip up to the lodge to complete the closing procedures for possibility that this extends through the end of spring.  We would likely do this in the next week, so contact us ASAP if you need us to gather material from your bin.
  • Attend our Virtual member meeting April 7th at 7:30.  
  • We will be having our next RHSC membership meeting in 2 weeks. The nominating committee will be sharing their recommended executive board slate at this meeting, you will also have the opportunity to nominate from the floor.  If you have thoughts on the executive leadership (Pres, VP, Treasurer, Secty), please reach out directly to the nominating committee (Sam GenMarli PinochetGreg Gibson and Aileen Cahill).  
  • This next meeting will be by WebEx (same as our previous virtual sessions), we will be fully leveraging technology to apply the appropriate Social Distancing.  Please feel free to bring your own cocktails and appetizers! 

As I shared in the last email, we will continue to monitor and will strive to overcommunicate in the case that further action is required.

If you have any question, please feel free to call me directly, (914) 805-9066.
