SITZMARKERS March newsletter

Our esteemed Snow Genie Jack Richardson

We prayed and Mammoth Mountain, as of this writing, has 510 inches of snow!

Below, some pics of our latest trip there, in February. 11 people and 2 condos!

We sure had a blast in Park City, Ut. Some of us drove, and a few flew. We met the Milwaukee Sitzmarkers for a Welcome party on Sunday, the day we arrived.

A few gathered for Happy Hour and grub, before th party.
A great day on the slopes, then Happy Hour in the " Relaxation Pool" We met here nearly every night for great Margaritas mixed up by Wayne and Cindy. Wine and Beer.
Dave and Debbie Johnson snapped a couple of cool photos
Some played games in their condo. Looks like Linda Aldaco won a round.
While several gathered to celebrate Lori Butler's  Birthday at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse.
Donna Foerster  in front of our Snowflower Condos.
