2018 Ski Trips

 

Planning for next years ski trips has started and a preliminary list is now available. After a successful 2017 campaign, the format has been expanded to accommodate strong demand and the increasing number of retirees in the club. Nearly 50% of our membership have left the work force. A number of midweek trips are targeted at this ever increasing demographic although working folks are certainly welcome to participate.

The traditional three day trips to Whistler are all back. The format of some of these trips has been altered to a Friday to Monday format. In the case of the December trip, this was done to facilitate the Whistler film festival. In the case of the Whistler bus trip in January, the reason is to avoid the congestion getting out of Whistler on Sunday after skiing. 

Other notable differences include moving the Whistler week long back to March. The week long continues in two parts – the Inside  Edge Cabin and a condo complex to be determined based on price and availability. We had very strong demand for this trip in 2017 with 40 of us attending. 

We have been offering an interior trip for the past two seasons. Roughly 25 members attended this past season. The format of selling the trip as three separate trips worked well for members who could not attend the entire 10 days and will be continued next year. While the details for the 2018 Interior trip have not been sorted out, the trip will be along Highway Three commencing on February 9th for twelve days. Candidate locations are Red Mountain Resort at Rossland, White Water Resort at Nelson, Fernie Alpine Resort at Fernie, and Big Mountain at Whitefish, Montana. Potentially other ares could be considered. If you are interested in going on this trip, your input would be appreciated. Contact Ron at 250 857-0915 and share your ideas or send an email to r.stengler@gmail.com. As well, we require someone to help organize the trip. 

A three day midweek trip is being organized to Mount Washington for February 12 – 14, which overlaps the interior trip. This trip is aimed at members who prefer not to take on the rigours of the interior trip, but still want an organized ski trip. John Francis will be coordinating this trip. 

New for 2018 is another 5 day trip (Sundayto Friday) commencing January 9. Candidate locations are Sun Peaks at Kamloops and Silver Star at Vernon. The argument for Sun Peaks is the great accommodation at the Woodhaven Condos. The argument against it is we were just there.  We had a great time at SilverStar two years ago. We stayed at Pinnacles which was not quite as nice, but is located in the town square. Let Ron know your thoughts. We will be pricing both locations.

The anchor trip will be Legends during the second weekend of April. The format is unchanged from previous years.
