Hello everyone, there was a lot of interest in the ski trip I posted last night. I deleted the event and created a new one with more information and a firm date.
What: 2 days of skiing at Snowshoe in West Virginia. 1 Night will be spent at the lodge at the bottom of the mountain.
When: January 10 and January 11. To keep costs low, we can drive up early on the 10th and drive back late on the 11th.
Cost: A 2day skiing pass to Snowshoe for those dates costs $79. One night in the lodge is $69. Depending on the number of people in the lodge, the room will be anywhere from $17.50 (before tax) to $35 (before tax). There are restaurants and food options there, but it is cheaper to bring sandwich stuff for the day. That night we can go to the pizza joint at the bottom so we can fuel up for the next day on the mountain! Gas to and from Snowshoe is reimbursed by the club plus a 20% tip.
Logistics: We need drivers. If your car can fit gear either inside or on top that’s even better. For anybody: if you aren’t in Charlottesville over break and need a place to stay the night before, you are welcome to crash on my floor that way we can leave early in the AM.
Everyone will be on a wait list at first until the driver:rider ratio is figured out. Once that is figured out and I add you to the trip, then I will contact everyone to buy their own Ski passes. Until then, do not buy your ski pass, as neither the club nor I will reimburse you if the trip falls through. That being said, I do not expect the trip to fall through.
Of note, this trip is subject to the weather. Hopefully a blizzard crushes Snowshoe three days before we get there. I will be watching the weather before we leave and if it is too inclement, the trip may be canceled. I do not want to be responsible for any injuries or damage to vehicles.
Lastly, this trip is aimed at experienced skiers/snowboarders. I am happy to show you how to ski, but I will also want to ski on my own/with other good skiers/boarders. Feel free to join the trip if you have never skied before, as it is a great opportunity to learn. However, I do not take responsibility for any injury while on the mountain.
