1. Survey Closes Wednesday….Seeking Input Regarding Use of the Upstairs Lounge by Persons Under 18 Years of Age (CSC Policy #5) 

The Caberfae Ski Club (CSC) Board of Directors wants to hear from you regarding a potential change to CSC Policy #5, which prohibits persons under the age of 18 from entering the upstairs lounge area of the Club, except in the case of special events. This change would update the policy to allow all persons to use the upstairs of the Club facility, with options for restricting access such as when the bar is open. As noted in the Thanksgiving newsletter, the Board has paused any action on this topic pending further engagement of the membership. We know this is an important issue, appreciate the feedback, and ultimately want to make sure that any change reflects the will of the Membership!

Survey: Do you support allowing persons under 18 years of age in the upstairs lounge? 

If so, what stipulations should be required? Is there anything else you feel should be considered? 


We ask that you please respond by Wednesday, December 20th. The Board plans to carefully review and consider feedback at the next board meeting. A Q&A is available on the survey for additional information, and please feel free to contact any Board member with questions or to provide feedback.
