Dressing Properly for Cold Weather

The Blue Ridge Ski and Outing Club will hold a membership meeting on Tuesday, January 13 at the Collinsville Bistro. Dinner will begin at 6:30 and special guest Aaron Daniel will discuss the importance of proper cold weather gear. Daniel is a PSIA certified level 2 (of 3) ski instructor with 12 years of instructing experience and worked in ski retail shops as a custom boot fitter for 20 years. According to Becky Hale, BRSOC President, “this is a great opportunity for those interested in skiing to come and see what our club is all about. And, it’s not just about skiing; we have all kinds of outdoor events planned and our socials give an opportunity for newcomers to meet new people.”

The Blue Ridge Ski & Outing Club started in 1979 as a non-profit organization to introduce non-skiers to active winter sports, promote safety, and provide members with ski trips at a low cost. There are a total of 180 members in the club throughout North America, and the activities have expanded to include many popular outdoor, and some indoor, group adventures and socials.
