On February 3rd, I arrived in New Jersey to witness one of the highlights of my career in the Snowsports industry, the grand opening of the National Winter Activity Center, which was two years and four months in development. The center is the brainchild of Schone Malliet, a former race coach of 4SW who progressed to become competition director, corporate development director, and executive vice president of the National Brotherhood of Skiers. Shone later became CEO of the National Winter Sports Education Foundation, a national non - profit whose mission is to improve the lives, health and fitness of youth through winter activities by leading the collaboration of several nationally recognized partner organizations. The center provides instruction, equipment, meals and mentoring to youth within the New York-New Jersey metropolitan area.

Located in Vernon, the center is a small mountain in a beautiful neighborhood. There is a state of the art equipment to keep pristine snow on the mountain with a race course, buses to transport the children, and a stylishly decorated center for the children to enjoy. It was a joy to meet the some of the passionate board of directors on Schone's team, as well as his staff. I was happy to see Andre Horton again, the first African American to make the US Ski team with the help of the NBS. Many leaders were present to wish Schone and the center well. The grand opening included a feast that was to die for! The programs was heartfelt and drew tears upon listening to Andre and Schone speak on their dreams for the future. The program was not complete until Damien Escobar, formerly of "Nuttin But Stringz", play his violin with the wonderful gift God gave him.

I wish that all of you could witness the even as I did but not worry! Check our Facebook page 4 Seasons West to see pictures and video from the event to get a flavor of what I experienced.

Congratulations, Schone!
