Steamboat Springs CANCELLED!!!!Ken Chodkiewicz
Phone: (973) 919-1962
Hi Everyone,
After going over all available information regarding skiing out west this upcoming season, I've made the decision to cancel this trip for numerous reasons.

1st- we only had 15 people interested in this trip (usually I have about 25-30 by this time of year & we need at least 20 to get our reduced rates)

2nd- The Corona virus is still around & probably a 2nd wave will hit some time before the winter.
This is the most uncertain item on this list, due to the unknowns.

3rd- the Airline uncertainty? although we had seats on an American flight, I do believe that it will drastically change soon- I read an article that American airlines will shrink its workforce by 40,000 employees (before October) unless the government comes through with more loans to prop them up until this pandemic is over (I don't think it will happen or will be enough) They are already pulling out scheduled flights from numerous cities & these flights will continue to diminish. Delta airlines just announced that they were furloughing 2,000 pilots my guess is that our flight would be pulled & we'd be stuck...

4th- Lift tickets- I'm already reading that a type of reservation system will be initiated at a lot of areas, since the overall volume of skiers will have to be reduced to 25%-50%. So I don't know if we'd be able to get a 5 day consecutive lift ticket (even if you had an Ikon Pass) - The areas connected with the Epic pass have already announced this happening, so I'm sure other areas connected to the Ikon Pass will follow.

5th- Refunds- by cancelling now, everyone should get 100% of their deposit back. That money I deposited in the High Life trip account & has not been sent to our travel agent yet. I had that put in our contract that we could cancel, but only up to August 31st, so I had to make a decision.

I'm still waiting to talk to our agent about the refunding of our initial deposit & that should happen in the next few days. Once i settle this I will get refund checks drawn up & mailed out, please be patient,since the club is still not having meetings, this will take a little time..

I'm sorry that this turned out this way & its the 1st time I've ever cancelled a trip.

Thank you,
