Letter from the President and GM

We are writing to you to give you an update on the operations of Holimont and a view to what’s coming up this Spring and Summer. First of all, we are hoping that you and your families are healthy and doing well. Our Club remains committed first and foremost to the health and safety of our employees and members, and are fortunate that we have not experienced an employee case of COVID-19 – for that we are thankful. Further, we are grateful that we were able to end an on-budget ski season with wonderful weather and treasured memories.

Current Operations:  The six employees that make up the full-time administrative staff of Holimont have been deemed “non-essential” under the New York Governor’s shut down order. Their time since closing day has seen them learning how to coordinate functions while limiting on-premises time as much as possible.  We do not expect to be able to bring administrative staff back into the office as a group until at least the beginning of June, but our staff remain very active and committed to our goals for the off-season. The mountain maintenance employees have been designated as “essential” under Governor Cuomo’s executive order, and therefore were able to resume normal Summer troubleshooting, repair, and preventive maintenance work on the mountain on March 25.
Coming Months: We expect the administrative staff to continue in our current configuration and slowly evolve to joining the mountain operations staff in a more Holimont-centered operation. We are taking a look at all in-season and off season operations of Holimont and will be adjusting everything we do to be compatible with regulations and enhanced safety in the coming months. In light of the economic uncertainty facing Holimont, we have pared back many of the capital projects we were planning to do over the summer to preserve a strong financial position. Further, we have successfully received support under the CARES act, in the form of the SBA Paycheck Protection Program loan.As many of you know, the PPP loan has favorable terms and the opportunity for up to 100% repayment forgiveness. We do anticipate holding a virtual Annual General Meeting and will be working toward the logistics of executing that in the near future. 
Fall and Winter: In light of the lightning fast evolution we have experienced in a couple short months, we are staying humbly patient regarding how the coming ski season will unfold. We remain vigilant and prepared to respond to COVID-19 avoidance and protection as the State of New York takes it’s first steps toward reopening businesses. We are positioning the Club to be prepared again to deliver the best family and on-hill ski experience in the Midwest, and to be financially strong and stable as we move through the year. Holimont will do everything in our power to be the “light at the end of the tunnel” when all of this is behind us.
Stay healthy, and we look forward to seeing you some time this summer or fall!
