I think we have a very
nice package of trips for the coming ski season. You will
notice a couple of differences. First, we are not going to do
any trips in December. The pricing for early season trips is
not much less, than mid-season trips, so we have decided to
offer the Europe trip in January; Winter Park in February; and
the seasons closer to Schweitzer Basin in Idaho in March. By
doing so, we feel that snow conditions will be much better than
a December crap shoot.
Our European trip this year is to Zell am
See, in Austria with an optional extension to the seaside resort
city of Opatija, Croatia on the Adriatic coast. Once again, the
Euro seems to be cooperating and, the cost of this year’s trip
is going to be lower than last years, however, trip sizes will
remain the same as last year. Each domestic trip this year has
25 spaces and the Europe trip has 40 spaces available. Take a
look inside for the full details of the trips.
Please keep in mind that our pricing is
based on a group of specific numbers. In many cases, unless we
have that number, the advertised cost would increase due to the
fact that you no longer have sufficient numbers to constitute
group pricing. As a result, we are going to change our
policies to include the provision that unless we have a large
enough group to be able to sustain that price, we will either
have to charge additional fees to cover the increased costs or
cancel the trip and refund your complete deposits. Also, all
of our trips will have more in inclusive options for air,
transfer, lift tickets and ground costs will be included. And,
new for this year on the Europe trip - it will include the cost
of your six day ski pass and two meals daily in Opatija.
And, please keep in mind that the pricing
for hotel rooms are per person with double occupancy. We will
try to find you a roommate but if that is not possible, there
may be an up charge for a single room supplement.
Finally, even if you cannot participate in
one of the trips, I encourage you to attend the Happy Hours,
parties and other group activities in the future. I look
forward to seeing each and every one of you at our club events
and on the ski slopes.
Hope to see you all soon
