What Do I Need to Know?

  • When: December 30 (10 a.m.) – January 2 (6 p.m.)
  • Cost: to ski—$280; to board—$300; to hang out—$150
  • Hold your spot with a $100 deposit by Thanksgiving! The total isn’t due until December 15.

What Does the Cost Cover?
The cost covers everything except snacks, souvenirs, and lunch on travel days. That means three nights’ lodging, two full days’ skiing (including twilight), all meals, and a retreat sweat-shirt are all included in the total cost.

What Should I Pack?
To ski or snowboard, you’ll need a few things:

  • Waterproof pants (or a nylon shell to wear over warm pants)
  • Layers, layers, and more layers (like long underwear and non-cotton fabrics)
  • Fleece
  • Gloves
  • Hat
  • Waterproof jacket or parka
  • Warm socks (especially wool)
  • Goggles and/or sunglasses
  • A fun costume!

When we’re not skiing, you should have a few things on hand:

  • Casual clothes for meetings and hang-outs
  • Underwear
  • Warm jacket
  • Sleepwear

You could bring a few miscellaneous items as well:

  • Movies for the bus
  • Bathing suit (no two-pieces)
  • Camera
  • Prescriptions and medications
  • Toiletries
  • Music (clean)
  • Frisbee (or other non-skiing equipment)

As far as spending money goes, bring at least $20 for lunches on the road and anything you think you’ll need for snacks and souvenirs.

Remember, you can only bring one (1) bag and a small (really) carry-on. Girls, feel free to begin freaking out at this point.

Are There Any Forms I Should Fill Out? (YES.)
