Looking forward to January 7th and a full trip

For those of you who missed our New Year's trip, you missed a fabulous trip. The snow was not bad at all and the day was a perfect temperature. The best part, was the lack of crowds! We almost had the ski area to ourselves.

We won't be as lucky with the trip on Jan 7th. This will be a jammed pack trip with lots of other skiers and boarders at Alpine. We will have limited space for our belongings and our buses will be full. In fact, we could use a few more Supervisors for our River Forest run to enable everyone who wants to attend to have a seat. If you want to help us out, we would appreciate it.

The First Trip of 2023!

Monday morning, December 26th, will begin the registration to the first trip of 2023. While the current forecasted weather is a bit crazy, we are expecting a trip on Sunday, January 1st to Alpine Valley. We will reassess the expected weather later in the week and let everyone know if we decide to cancel our trip. But for now, it is a go. We wish a happy and healthy new year to all!

First Trip is this Saturday, December 10

We look forward to our first trip of the season. Membership has closed and we have a mix or new and returning members. Please ensure you stay up to day on new information - usually presented here and on Facebook first. eMail blasts go out once a week. Please ensure you are on the mailing list by signing the box that floats across the website asking you to sign up. The trip schedule and the bus routes are found under the "More Info" tab at the top of the page. Looking forward to the snow on Friday and Saturday which will make our first trip just that much better.

Blizzard Membership is Now Closed

We have been overwhelmed by the response to membership this year. Based on last year's participation level and how an increased membership changed some of our policies, we have decided to close membership earlier than expected. It is purely a numbers game and being able to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to participate in every trip. Sorry to those who did not respond to my earlier emails about signing up early. 

Happy Halloween!

Our Early Bird pricing is now over. Membership fees are now $150 for the season. We have also reached the maximum number of members where we can safely say that everyone who wants a seat for a trip is likely to be able to have one depending on our Supervisor presence. For that reason, I will leave the club open for membership for one more day. The trip fee, based on the increase in bus costs and lift tickets will be $140 per trip. If you have not already done so, please rent your ski and board equipment as soon as possible as local inventory is getting low.
