Ludlow Electric FREE Energy Saving Kit Offer
Posted on Sep 16th, 2021 Comments (0)
Along with your recent Village of Ludlow Electric bill you would have received a flyer offering some FREE Energy Saving Kits.  One of our owners mentioned this on the September Board meeting Zoom.  He applied for one and reported that it needed to be sent to a Vermont mailing address.  Since our condos do not have mailing addresses, Michael Normlye said we could have them sent to his office for owners to pick up when in town.  
In case you didn't notice the flyer or lost it, you can use this link  to get to the offer.

Launching new website
Posted on May 11th, 2021 Comments (0)
Morning to all Solitude owners,
On behalf of Michael Giersch and Mark Tolosky, the Board members who spearheaded this effort.....
We are pleased to announce that we have launched our new Solitude Village COA website!  If you are receiving this email you are already registered on the website.  However, the first time you login (your email is your username) you will have to select a password.  Select 'forgot password' and the system will send you instructions.  Good security practice is to use a unique password for each site. 
Our new website is intended to provide useful information to our owners, friends and family, and renters.  Some portions of it are open to the public (like renters) and some are members only, accessed only from a member signed in with a password.  Our hope is that this will be a helpful adjunct to our Solitude Village Facebook page, which will still be the prime vehicle for message board type interactions among the members.  
The website is organized across eight main pages or tabs.   
1. Management - your Board, and management contacts
2. General Information - key information on the facilities and rules
3. Directories - Owner directory and Pet Registry.  The Owner directory can be viewed by name sequence or unit sequence. Owners can opt to add more information (phone, photo) beyond their email. See the FAQs.  We have populated the Pet Registry with the dogs that were already registered. Pet owners please send Micahel Normlye a photo that will be added to the Pet Registry. We'd love to see their smiling faces.  If you haven't registered a pet, please do so on the Pet Registry page.  Dogs and Cats welcome!
4. Calendar -  this will allow you to see upcoming Board meetings and will include the zoom link for the meeting.  
5. COA documents - Detailed rules and regulations, Board minutes, financials, etc.
6. FAQ - hopefully many of the questions/answers that might come up
7. Useful Links - to Okemo and others
8. Contact Us - An easy way to reach key people, for questions that are not included or help on the website. 
Directories, Calendar and COA Documents are member only access.   The rest are open to the public. 
A little further down the home page you'll see three boxes.  Upcoming events will take you to the calendar.  Recent News will include emails (like this one) for future reference. And the third is a link to the Solitude Village COA Facebook page. 
We hope you find this a useful addition to our community.  Now, at your leisure, click the link below and take a look!  And set up a password.  And use the 'contact us' (Website Committee)  for any questions or comments about the site.
Michael Normyle or the  Website Committee
Okemo website in transition
Posted on May 11th, 2021 Comments (0)
Presently the Okemo web site is not up to date with summer activities. We are working with the digital marketing team on the creative and up to date information.  It is expected that this will be live by May 27th. Guests can email or call our call center 228 – 1600 to get answers to questions about this coming summer.  There has been updated information on our social media sites.
Here is an excerpt of what we are planning:

Mountain Biking – Mtn. Biking will just be run on the lower lifts off A/B Quad.

The Clock Tower Base Lodge will remain closed for the summer, with the exception of the Guest Service Office which will mimic hours of operations.
Timber Ripper Coaster
Disc Golf – We are planning on including rentals this season
Mini Golf – We are also working the Hospitality team to set up some type of nighttime “Under the Lights” golfing that will be operated out of the front desk.

Mountain Outfitters –hours of operation will mimic those of our summer activities.
Sugar House – Mountain Bike Rentals and Retail will be operated out of the Sugar House
Summit Lodge – The team will be looking to expand their food/beverage options as guidelines permit

Solitude Daylodge and Pool Update
Posted on Apr 10th, 2021 Comments (0)
Good Afternoon Solitude Village, Daylodge and Private Home Owners.
Spring has sprung and Okemo Mountain will be closing for skiing this Sunday April 4th .   While this is a little earlier than usual the upcoming Green Ridge and Quantum Chair Lift Upgrades slated for this summer will begin on Monday the 5th by plowing Mountain Road to have access to the summit to install the new  lift towers.  Such a large project requires every day available.   
The Solitude Daylodge Pool will be closing on Sunday April 4th and Reopening on May 29th.   This decision was made for a number or reasons but mostly financial.  With State Covid Requirements we must have an attendant on at all times the pool is open almost doubling the normal summer cost to runt the pool when we could utilize the key card access.  Solitude Village, Daylodge and Private Home Owners may use the Spring House facilities at Jackson Gore – Reservations are required – Please call 802-228-1419 to make a reservation for the Pool or the Gym. 
When I further information about Covid occupancy requirements for this summer I will send an update prior to reopening. 
Thanks and have a great Spring !
