December 2011 Update

Posted by: Johnny Smoke  /  Category: Archived Posts

Your Board had a meeting Dec. 6th. and are setting a strategy to be more cognizant of hill direction and development and input our concerns as necessary. We have opened some doors with the Ministry of Forestry, Lands and Natural Resources as that Ministry in regards to Apex’s All Season’s Resort Policy. We are taking a bit of a watchdog approach and feel as an Association it may be necessary to have more involvement with what is and isn’t being implemented . We are encouraged to see new ownership of some of our hill businesses and encouraged by the enthusiastic vibe at the opening of the season from management, businesses and lift ticket holders. However, there ARE concerns that we intend to keep an eye on and be proactive as required as we get into the 2012 season. You will be kept informed and there may be a call for volunteers from time to time. Don’t let this scare you—no pressure!

On another note, the Board HAS realized 2 small projects:

  1. Our Happy 50th. Apex banner has been hung by Maintenance Foreman Yves on the uprights outside of the Gunbarrel at the stairs facing the Okanagan run. It will remain there for the duration of the season.
  2. We have implemented the painting of the picnic tables and the hanging of posters in the Lunch Room, again by Yves and his crew. This is scheduled to be done between now and the Christmas rush. The room is dismal and we saw a need for a better brownbag lunch experience for users. Thanks go to James Shalman and Steve LaPrairie for agreeing to get this done.

A very happy holiday season to you all and I hope to meet many of you on the hill in 2012. We are off this morning to Palm Springs so will miss the festivities here through-out the next few weeks. Thank-you for supporting our efforts with your membership and talk to your friends who are not members and encourage them to join, either through our website, apexpoa@ or by picking up a membership form which have been distributed around various counters in the village (they are yellow). WE DO HAVE A VOICE AND WE INTEND TO BE HEARD.
