Year to all Orlando Ski and Travel Club members
and friends! Hope your Holidays were full of good cheer! Our ski trip

now to join us for next December’s early season pre-holiday trip!
Social at Ale House was also quite festive with great comradery
amongst our members while also once again generously supporting the
Marines Toys for Tots! OSTC members are always so very
generous with gifts and cash to help the Marines annually, makes me
feel proud, thank you so much!
enjoyed a complimentary beverage sponsored by the Club, enhanced
foods, two decadent cakes in a festive atmosphere! Thank you to Peter
Glenn, Winter Club Ski and Ale House for their Door Prize donations!

energetic bike ride on West Orange Trail starting in historic
Downtown Winter Garden, followed by another interesting historic tour
of the downtown, guided by our own Club Historian! Of course,
appropriately for OSTC, we concluded the tour at the
Crooked Can Brewery where we recapped the history over a variety of
locally brewed beers!
ushered in Christmas on bicycles after dark with some 300 other
bicyclists on a ride thru College Park, singing carols and enjoying
festive Christmas lights! It was a BLAST! All the bikes were decked
out with Christmas lights and the rider’s outfits were each quite
unique! For 2019 I hope OSTC will have 50 riders, we’ll plan a

The FIS rules are comparable to international road
traffic regulations. Every skier and snowboarder should be aware of
these FIS rules in order to protect yourself and others from
potential dangers and to avoid accidents on ski slopes.
1. Respect for others
A skier or snowboarder must behave in such a way that he does not
endanger or prejudice others.
2. Control of speed and skiing or
A skier or snowboarder must move in control. He must adapt his speed
and manner of skiing or snowboarding to his personal ability and to
the prevailing conditions of terrain, snow and weather as well as to
the density of traffic.
3. Choice of route
A skier or snowboarder coming from behind must choose his route in
such a way that he does not endanger skiers or snowboarders ahead.
A skier or snowboarder may overtake another skier or snowboarder
above or below and to the right or to the left provided that he
leaves enough space for the overtaken skier or snowboarder to make
any voluntary or involuntary movement.
5. Entering, starting and moving
A skier or snowboarder entering a marked run, starting again after
stopping or moving upwards on the slopes must look up and down the
slopes that he can do so without endangering himself or others.
6. Stopping on the piste
Unless absolutely necessary, a skier or snowboarder must avoid
stopping on the piste in narrow places or where visibility is
restricted. After a fall in such a place, a skier or snowboarder must
move clear of the piste as soon as possible.
7. Climbing and descending on foot
A skier or snowboarder either climbing or descending on foot must
keep to the side of the piste.
8. Respect for signs and
A skier or snowboarder must respect all signs and markings.
At accidents, every skier or snowboarder is duty bound to assist.
Every skier or snowboarder and witness, whether a responsible party
or not, must exchange names and addresses following an accident.

On Saturday, December 8, the Orlando Ski and Travel
Club had a holly jolly time in Winter Garden. Opportunities to
join with other members and their guests ranged from a high exertion
bike ride on the West Orange Trail, to a historical stroll through downtown,
to a quick visit to the amazing farmers market, to the laid-back
brews and taste sensations at Crooked Can Brewery and the Plant
Street Market. Regardless of which activities everyone
participated in, the real joy came from spending time locally to grow
friendships with folks that we ski and travel with.
