sallyHow to Stay Warm:*
Ski season is in full swing and the weather can be a challenge! Follow these tips to stay comfortable:

  • Fuel up with a complete breakfast
  • Hydrate throughout the day
  • Dress appropriately with breathable base layers, including your socks
  • Your ski jacket, ski pants and gloves should be waterproof and insulated
  • Wearing a helmet not only protects your head but it keeps you warm as well
  • Be sure to take breaks.

60th Anniversary Ski Day & Fish Fry at Little Switzerland Fri., February 23, 2 pm
Ten years ago, the Club celebrated its 50th anniversary at Little Switzerland with a dinner and a ski event. We had so much fun we decided to do it again for the 60th anniversary. Many Vagabonds learned to ski at Little Swiss and the Ski Racing Team continues to practice there every Wednesday during the ski racing season.

Enjoy an afternoon of skiing starting at 2 pm. There will be a discounted lift ticket (less than $25) payable at the ski hill on the day of the event. Equipment rental or other extras are on your own.

The fish fry buffet includes fried fish (or baked fish on request), potato pancakes, fries, rye bread and coleslaw. A cash bar begins at 5:30 pm with dinner at 6:30 pm in the Cedar Creek Room. The price for the dinner is $14, which includes tax and gratuity.

Deadline for dinner reservations is Thurs., February 15. Send your completed Event Coupon indicating your dinner choice (fried or baked) and a check payable to VSSC for $14 to Carol Gavigan, 2820 Wexford Rd., Mt. Pleasant, WI 53405. If you plan to ski, please indicate that on the Event Coupon as well. Questions? Call Carol at 262-632-1922 or email her at
