Dear Members & Friends,

Type One, LLC is holding their Mass Mayhem event on April 12th at the Blandford Ski Area. Both the Ski Club and Type One, LLC are seeking volunteers ages 16 and up for this event. Volunteering for this event will not only help make Mass Mayhem successful in raising money for Type One Diabetes Research; it will also support The Springfield Ski Club in it’s efforts to hold off-season events at the mountain. Below are the times available to volunteer.

Wednesday, April 9th 9:00am – 1:00pm
Thursday, April 10th 9:00am – 1:00pm

Saturday, April 12th 7:00am – 3:00pm – Event Day!**
Sunday, April 13th 9:00am – 1:00pm

Important: Volunteers play very important roles at the race, so it’s important that everyone who signs up actually shows up. Please be certain that you can make it to the race before volunteering.

Anyone that will be on-site and volunteering for the event, you must register online through the Blandford Ski Area’s online store. If you have already registered through the Mass Mayhem website, please do not sign up again. The deadline to sign-up and volunteer is Friday April 4th. Please consider forwarding this email to friends or family that may want to volunteer. You must be at least 16 years old to volunteer.

** For those of you willing to volunteer time on Saturday, you might be assigned to the Mass Mayhem volunteer teams. If so, you’ll have two options when volunteering:

Mass Mayhem Morning Volunteer: Select this option if you’d like to help Mass Mayhem from 7:00am – 11am on the day of the race. Once you arrive at the race, we’ll assign you a position. You’ll then be refunded your registration fee and will be able to run in a later wave (11:30am-12:00pm) or at a future event. Simply let us know after you finish your shift and we’ll get you into the wave of your choice!

Mass Mayhem Afternoon Volunteer: Select this option if you’d like to help out Mass Mayhem from 10:30am – 2:30pm on the day of the race. Once you arrive at the race, we’ll assign you a position, and you can take your place at the start line for the heat of your choice. Afternoon volunteers can run in the first wave (9:00) by simply registering on the website. You will pay the regular fee but we will refund your registration fee immediately after you finish your afternoon volunteer shift!

Thank you in advance for Volunteering!


Spring is here!

A Message to our members, guests, and staff

Thank you to the efforts and dedication of many, MANY staff at our mountain for the ski & ride experience they helped provide our members & guests at the club this past season. The daily experience often begins with guidance from our Parking Attendants, followed by the Membership Office Staff for information and lift tickets. Our newer members and guests can benefit from lessons provided by our Snowsports Education Staff.

Throughout the countless trips to the top with assistance from our Lift Operators, the Ski Patrol staff help keep skiiers and riders safe on the trails, and in our parks which are maintained regularly by our Terrain Park Crew. When taking a break at the base of the mountain, the food served by the Moutainside Grille Staff could be enjoyed in many places. Whether sitting outside on the decks, warming up by the new firepit, or even sitting in either one of our lodges; these areas are monitored & maintained by our Lodge Attendants.

Several times throughout the season, the ski area hosts Interclub races in which competitors from other ski areas in the Tri-State area compete in slalom and giant slalom races on the mountain. Additionally, for 9 weeks, corporate racing takes place on Wednesday nights. These racing events, which benefit the area in a variety of ways, would not be so successful if not for the Club Racing Staff.

Often sight unseen is our Mountain Operations Crews. During our day-to-day operating hours they lie in wait; promptly responding, as needed, to keep equipment located all over the mountain operating. After hours, our snowmakers endure the night time temps in order to capitalize on the prime conditions to work their magic. Finally, often coordinating their completion just as the mountain prepares to open, the groomers meticulously lay down the corduroy for those eager to make first tracks.

In addition to those noted above, there are countless friends of the club whom regularly contribute everything from lending a hand on-the-spot, to helping with various events taking place during the ski/ride season, to contributing resources needed for use at the mountain. A big “thanks!” to these countless friends of the club.

And finally, a special THANK YOU to our Club Members and Guests for your support & efforts in helping us make this past season successful!!
