Fall Work Party - SKIBACS Lodge@Crystal Mountain


As we have begun to establish goals and priorities for improvements and maintenance at Crystal Lodge, one fact stands out. The Lodge will only succeed with support from it’s members. The mission in our facilities management is matching a cost effective improvement budget with member participation.

One of the most difficult challenges has been to match work party opportunities with member’s family and work schedules.

With this mission in mind, we saw the best return on investment for the Lodge by introducing the following:

- Three work party events

    • May 20-21 - 3rd Annual Pig Roast

    • August 12-13 - 3rd Annual Salmon Bake

    • October 14-15 - 1st Annual Turkey Roast

  • Each event will be limited to the first 25 people

  • A lodge voucher will be awarded for each FULL day of participation (so feel free to come up Friday, stay for free, eat chili and socialize with other members, AND be ready to go Saturday morning!)

  • In an effort to fund maintenance and improvements at the Lodge We’ve examined other Club models.

    • The Mountaineers and Skiers’ Inc clubs suggest monetary donations of $100.00/single, $300/family for those members who would like to invest in our Club’s future, but can’t make it to any of the three events. (you’ll still get a lodge voucher for each $100.00 donated.) THIS IS NOT MANDATORY NOR AN ADDITIONAL FEE. IT’S ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY TO INVEST IN THE LODGE AND YOUR FUTURE MEMORIES WITH FAMILY, FRIENDS AND FELLOW CLUB MEMBERS!

  • For those members whose goal is to invest in the legacy of the Lodge, donations can be made to capital improvements in the member’s or their families name or in a loved one’s memory. We’ll honor this donation with your name on a benefactors plaque placed at Crystal Lodge.

Do you have resources, ideas, materials? Would rather donate money than time?

Please coordinate with Bev Merryman ( or Tom Watson (

Register below so we can plan for food and beverages during your stay.

Lodge credits will be awarded to all those who participate for each full day of help you donate. No overnight fee will be expected from those coming up to participate in our work parties.

Thank you for your continued care, interest, stewardship and support of the SKIBACS Crystal Lodge.

Ski you there!
