Wood Shed/Ski Storage - For the 2019-20 season the club is offering members, on a trial basis, the opportunity to store personal ski equipment in the woodshed.


The following policy will be in effect, on a trial basis for this ski season:

. LEAVE EQUIPMENT AT YOUR OWN RISK. The WPSC cannot be responsible for loss or damage.

. A maximum of one pair of skis and poles per person may be stored. No other equipment may be stored.

. Storage is on a first-come-first served basis.

. Equipment must be left in the provided ski rack. Only as many pairs of skis may be left as there are spaces for in the rack (ten).

. All equipment must be clearly marked with the owner’s name.

. Equipment may only be left in the shed between Thanksgiving and April 30

. The club may terminate the program at any time in the event that difficulties are encountered.

. Please remember to lock the woodshed behind you at all times (whether or not skis are present).

. Please remember that personal equipment is not to be left in the mudroom or elsewhere inside the lodge between your visits.


This policy guideline will also be posted in the lodge




Take care, everyone, and think snow!
