It was a long hot summer but skiers are eagerly awaiting the beginning of a new ski season. PebbleCreek doesn’t have a ski club but many PebbleCreek skiers belong to Valley of the Sun Ski Club (VSSC) which is open to all skiers and is a short drive on Loop 303 to the Sun City West Foundation, southwest corner of Stardust and RH Johnson Boulevard, Sun City West. Meetings are held on the first Thursday of the month and the kickoff meeting is November 2. VSSC offers well organized, reasonably priced trips to some of the best ski areas in the west. For the 2017-2018 season, great trips are planned for Aspen/Snowmass, Telluride and Big Sky and a few openings are still available. The club provides an excellent opportunity to ski and socialize with other active adults with similar interests; visit the club website at www.ski.scwclubs.com for more information and dinner reservation forms.
