RMSSC in Edmonton Senior Newspaper (2010)
The front page of the February 2010 edition of the Edmonton Senior newspaper featured a large colour photo of RMSSC members enjoying themselves at Sun Peaks last year. The “Top of the World Warming Hut” never looked so good, with all those smiling faces in front of it! Nice plug for the Club. Thanks Edmonton Senior!

Evolution of the Rocky Mountain Seniors Ski Club (2007)
The attached document was provided to SASC members at the Annual General Meeting in Calgary on May 28. It describes the initial formation of the Northern Branch of the Seniors Alpine Ski Club and some of the issues which led to the evolution of the SASC Northern Branch into the Rocky Mountain Seniors Ski Club some ten years later. Chief among these were the diverging views of the Calgary Executive and those of the Northern Branch members, specifically regarding summer activities. Also, at 44% of the overall SASC membership, the NB membership was large enough to be self-supporting and would be more adequately governed by a local executive more responsive to local interests. A similar document was provided to the SASC NB members at our AGM on May 14. Many members, both in Calgary and Edmonton, were not aware of the issues which led to the formation of the new club. It is the intent of the RMSSC that the Boards of both organizations cooperate to promote skiing, camaraderie and fitness for seniors.
