WHISTLER-BLACKCOMB SKI RESORT
I HAVE EXTENDED THE DEADLINE FOR THOSE WHO HAVE ALREADY CONTACTED ME AND PAID. PLEASE DO NOT SIGN UP IF YOU ARE NOT ONE OF THESE PEOPLE
Whistler Blackcomb is consistently rated as the number one ski resort in North America, and this is pretty much all you need to know about that. We will be skiing the 200+ trails on the mountain over six days, while staying right smack dab in the middle of Whistler Village (where all the bars, nightclubs, shopping, etc. are!) If you need to know anything else about his amazing place just check out whistlerblackcomb.com … it pretty much speaks for itself.
Note: This not only has the potential to be, but DEFINITELY WILL BE the greatest trip this club has or ever will see.
Monday, Jan. 7th, 2008: Depart for Seattle by air (most likely from BWI, we will carpool), Spend the night in beautiful Seattle (awesome city, I’ve been there, you’ll love it)
Tuesday: Greyhound ride to Whistler, check-in, grocery shop, check out the town, etc.
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday: SKI/BOARD the best mountain in North America
Tuesday, Jan. 15th, 2008: Greyhound ride back to Seattle, Fly back to the East Coast, possibly return to C-ville super late
Wednesday: Most likely return date to C-ville, you’ll probably miss your first day of classes, but who the hell cares, you just got back from F’N WHISTLER

HOW DO I BECOME AN OFFICIAL MEMBER OF THIS EXCELLENT TRIP?
Everyone will be waitlisted until they have booked a flight to Seattle. The sign-up deadline is Wednesday, November 14th at 5 p.m. That night, we will have a “Ticket Buying Party” at my house, where everyone will book their tickets at the same time. You will then be officially added to the trip. If you have your own laptop please bring it with you that night.
ONE FINAL THING
YOU WILL NEED A US PASSPORT TO GET INTO CANADA. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ONE, AND IF YOU DON’T YOU NEED TO GET ONE ASAP (and by ASAP I mean by the end of November or you’re screwed)
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, COMMENTS OR CONCERNS
Please email me ASAP and I will fill you in with any details I have left out.
Sorry for the extremely short turn-around, but Whistler’s prices go up on November 15th.
