You can do a season-rental for about $150 at ski stores near C’ville. Another option is to buy a used gear. It’s all up to how much you are committed.
The cost of lift tickets for just this 1 trip = $182

Wanna make some consumer surplus? I hope you didn’t sleep through your econ classes.
Everyone is waitlisted until drivers sign up. I would also need some volunteers to help me shop groceries and people to cook for each night. Drivers and volunteers get priority on this trip.
I will take $30 checks/cash on the following dates & times
Thursday, Nov. 13: 5:00pm @ Echols
Friday, Nov. 14: 6:00pm @ Clark Hall/Brown Science & Engineering Library (where you get your pass)
If you can’t make it to either, you should email me ahead of time. If I do not receive money by 11-14 6:30pm, I will send out an email to the waitlist and start taking money from them.
If you must withdraw before the trip, I will try to pull someone from the waitlist to cover for your deposit. But you are ultimately responsible for finding a replacement
