Ski & Snowboard Trip!!

UPDATE #12: The email with my cell no. and room no. has been sent to the YES RSVPs. Please TEXT ME if you need to and meet me at my room for checkin. Just a reminder, I'll be there at 5pm. If you do not see my email, check your spam folder. If it's not there, send me an email through my Meetup profile with your cell no. so I can text you back. See you there!

UPDATE #11: I will send out an email Fri. morning with my cell no. and my room no. for you to meet me at for check-in. Please check your spam folder if you don't see it, and also make sure your Meetup email settings allow for you to receive emails from the organizer. I will give everyone your lift ticket passes, rental forms, room keys, and any lesson tickets. If you are running late, please TEXT me. This UPDATE has also been emailed to the YES RSVPs. See you there!

UPDATE #10: The trip has sold out. I've removed those RSVP's that signed up but never made payment. Only those that have already made payment for sleeping accommodations may purchase additional lift tickets, rental equipment, and lessons moving forward. I'll see everyone there!

UPDATE #9: The early-bird price has ended and the regular ticket price is now in effect. There are only a couple of spots left, so get them while you can. If you RSVP'd yes, but have not made payment, you are not included in this trip. See you there!

UPDATE #8: If you did not respond to the email I sent to the yes RSVPs a while ago re: UPDATE #4, I made the presumption you were interested only in the ski option, and submitted it to the ski resort.

UPDATE #7: The early-bird pricing ends before Thurs. Jan. 9th and there are only a few spots left, so make payment to lock in your spot if you haven't done so already. I hope to see you there!

UPDATE #6: Based on member feedback, I got us group lessons for those you interested. Retail price is $58 (taxes and fees included) per person for 1 group lesson. Our price is 20% off @ $46. Price goes up to $51 per person before Thurs. Jan. 9th. So sign on up!

UPDATE #5: I've secured for us some additional rooms, so we've been able to open some additional spots. Get them while you can!

UPDATE #4: For those of you renting equipment, the ski resort is requiring us to tell them whether you want to rent skis or a snowboard. If you are renting for both days, you have the option of doing 1 day of skis and 1 day of snowboarding, or 2 days of just skis, or 2 days of just snowboarding. Please submit those to me via email through my Meetup profile if you haven't answered already. Thank you!

UPDATE #3: The "early early-bird" price has ended and the "early bird" ticket price is now in effect. Looking forward to seeing you there!

UPDATE #2: I've worked it out so that most items are a la carte *and* got us a deeper discount! Early bird pricing ends Tues. Dec. 31st or whenever they sell out (whichever comes first), come join us for this great weekend of skiing and snowboarding! If you've already made payment, please send me an email so that I can refund a portion of your payment to reflect the new discounted pricing.

UPDATE #1: There are less than 5 "early early-bird" spots left and the price will increase when the "early early-bird" spots are gone or before Tues. Dec. 31st (whichever comes first). To be fair to those who want to join in and are ready to make payment, I'll be removing those that haven't paid by Sun. Dec. 22nd. So make payment to *truly* lock in your spot.

Let's get together for a weekend of skiing and snowboarding!

I've made special arrangements for our group for a full weekend of skiing / snowboarding at Snowshoe Mountain Ski Resort (a four hour drive from DC). With a 4.0 rating on both Google Reviews and Yelp, many reviewers have stated this is the best skiing on the east coast!

I've reserved for us a block of 2 bedroom 2 bath condos at Mountain Lodge (Standard) located right in the heart of the Snoeshow Village, so it's easy access to the rental shop, restaurants, and of course the slopes for direct "ski in / ski out" access (the chairlift is right outside our back door!). Each unit has a complete kitchen, dining / living area, interior hallway ski storage, private balcony, free wifi, 24 hour security, restaurant / bar onsite, Direct TV, and our lodge even has it's own private (gated and free) parking lot out in front. See pictures of our lodge at the bottom of this posting!

We'll check-in Friday night at my room (TBA) from 5pm - midnight. After check in, feel free to go enjoy the Village, snowmobiles, snowshoes, snow tubes, or the awesome hot tubs (they close at 10pm)!

Then Saturday morning from 9 - 10am, we'll get together for breakfast at Shaver's Center. If you wish to get an earlier jump on the day, by all means, please do.

Then we're off on the slopes for a full day of skiing / snowboarding! As an option, they also offer lessons, so if you're interested, please let me know, and I'll see if I can get us a group rate. All meals are on our own.

At 10pm, we'll meet at my room (TBA) for some pre-game activity before heading out at 11pm to Connection nightclub for a night of dancing, music, mingling, drinks, and fun!

Sunday morning we'll do it all over again! Again, if you wish to get an earlier jump on the day, by all means, please do. Check out time is 11am, so be sure you put your bags in your cars before you hit the slopes.

What's included in our package (note: you must choose one of the sleeping options to join this trip):

• Double Occupancy Lodging (sharing room and possibly bed with one another) - Retail price is $220 for both nights (taxes and fees included) per person. Our price is 30% off @ $155 per person for both nights. If you have a preference for a roommate, please let me know full first and last name. Otherwise, I will assign a roommate to you. Price goes up to $165 per person for both nights before Tues. Dec. 31st, and again to $175 per person for both nights before Thurs. Jan. 9th.

• Single Occupancy Lodging (your own room) - Retail price is $440 for both nights (taxes and fees included) per person. Our price is 30% off @ $310 for both nights. Price goes up to $330 for both nights before Tues. Dec. 31st, and again to $360 for both nights before Thurs. Jan. 9th.

• Sleeper Sofa in the Living Room of a Unit (possibly sharing bed with one another) - $75 for per person both nights. Price goes up to $80 per person for both nights before Tues. Dec. 31st, and again to $85 per person for both nights before Thurs. Jan. 9th.

• Ski or snowboard rental - Retail price is $46 per day (taxes, fees, insurance included) per person. Our price is 20% off @ $37 per day. Price goes up to $39 per day before Tues. Dec. 31st, and again to $41 per day before Thurs. Jan. 9th.

• Group lessons - Retail price is $58 (taxes and fees included) per person for 1 group lesson. Our price is 20% off @ $46. Price goes up to $51 per person before Thurs. Jan. 9th.

Note we will attempt to assign same sex to one condo where possible. There may be instances where some condos will be co-ed due to imbalance in gender signups. Each room / sleeper sofa within each condo will be same sex, unless you are a couple.

Since items are a la carte, please make payment at Eventbrite here...  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/ski-snowboard-trip-tickets-9931959759

The first 15 paid sign-ups, or those who pay before Tues. Dec. 31st (whichever comes first) get the early bird price! After that, prices will go up, and then again before Thurs. Jan 9th. We have a LIMITED number of spots so make sure to RSVP early and make payment to get the early bird price!

Also please know that your RSVP is not guaranteed unless we receive payment. When you pay, your online receipt is confirmation that we have received your payment.

Tell your friends, come join us, and let's together for a great weekend of skiing, snowboarding, new friends, and outdoor fun!

See you there!

- J.T.

Carpooling

If you need a ride, I suggest posting in the comment box below. Likewise, if you can offer a ride, please also post in the comment box with number of people you can accommodate.

Event Check-in

We will have a master list of all those that have paid. It’s not required, but I recommend printing out your payment confirmation as a backup. When you check-in, your RSVP will be listed under the name of the Paypal or credit card account used to make payment.  Typically, this is your LEGAL name as shown on your driver's license.  Sometimes, it may be under a company name if you set up your Paypal or credit card account that way.  If you are not sure what it is, please take a moment to log into your Paypal account (it will say "Welcome, [your account name]" at the top) or your credit card account to find out.  If you are RSVP'd under someone else's payment, please use that name for check-in.

Refund Policy & Ticket Resell

Since we paid in advance for this event, all sales are final unless the event is cancelled or rescheduled.  Similar to a concert ticket or a football game ticket, you are free to sell your ticket to someone else (same sex only if individual spot; same sexes only, or to another couple, if a couple spot) if you are unable to attend.  I suggest posting in the comment box for the event, that you have a ticket for sale. Work out payment between yourselves, and send us an email letting us know the full name and Meetup profile URL (if a member) of the person taking your spot. Thanks for understanding. =)

    Hi guys! I made it late last night (like 3am) and was unable to get up at 9am to meet you. You guys still meeting tonight at 10pm??

    January 25, 2014

    • J.T.

      Yes! Meet at my room (Mountain Lodge MM165) at 10pm for pre-game before we head out to Connections bar. Feel free to bring any drinks!

    Sitting at the table immediately in front of the entrance to shavers center!

    1 · January 25, 2014

  • J.T.

    Just a reminder, if you'd like to meet for breakfast, we'll be at Shaver's Center (you may get a map at the front desk) at 9am. You'll need to drop off your Waiver form to the Ski Patrol office in the basement of Shaver's Center in the morning. If you rented equipment, please take your legal-sized form to Expedition Station to pick up your equipment. If you arrived at the resort after midnight, please meet me at Shaver's Center for breakfast at 9am. I'll have your lift tickets and forms for you to fill out. I'll be there until 10am. Text or email me if you need to. Looking forward to seeing you on the slopes!

    January 25, 2014

  • Vaibhav

    any plans to gather somewhere tonight? Within the lodge, restaurant, starbucks??

    January 24, 2014

  • J.T.

    They changed things on us. You need to go to mountain top checkin to pick up your keys first, then you can drive to our lodge, and stop by my room to pick up everything else. See you soon!!!

    January 24, 2014

    • J.T.

      If they seem confused, ask for Sheila in group sales

    Hi anyone need a ride or got space still? Looks like RJ's carpool is not happening today. I will be leaving from around Tyson Corner. Thanks!

      I'm on my way. Text me your address

      January 24, 2014

  • Lati S.

    Hi guys,
    I'll be Snowshoe Mountain for the weekend. Due to a mix-up with a friend I wasn't able to book through this meet up though. I'd like to meetup with you guys for breakfast and pre-game on Sat night.
    If anyone has the details on where exactly you will be meeting during those times please email me at [masked].

    Thanks!!!

    January 23, 2014

    • Lati S.

      Great! Thanks...I'll text you tonight or tomorrow am. I am leaving work and heading over, but will probably arrive late.

    Hey everyone! I just joined this meetup. I'll be in snowshoe too this weekend and I want to meet up with everyone ehile there too!

  • Ellen C

    Does anyone still need a ride? I have a AWD SUV with space for 2 passangers with equipment.

    January 21, 2014

    • Ellen C

      We plan to leave at about 1:00 (I want to drive thru the mountains while it is still light.) If you can't get another ride we'll squeeze you in somehow. (My CX-5 has an inside center fold down for ski/boards so four adults can fit.) It would help if we all brought just small suitcases or backpacks. P.S. We are leaving at 6:30AM; I just realized my earlier posting didn't specify the AM.

      January 21, 2014

    • Shandel

      I just have a small suitcase no equipment, I wanted to leave early fri so the time is perfect. I have a ride back I just need a ride getting there, so if you can fit one more in send me an email so we can work out the details [masked]

      January 21, 2014

  • Jewell

    Hey! I am definitely interested in going, but I am totally alone...I will need a couch to crash on and hopefully a carpool buddy...

    December 30, 2013

    • Mary

      Oh, I just saw that RJ has a 4x4 truck with lots of space so maybe it would be easier for me to go with him? I don't want to make it too crowded for you guys!

      January 15, 2014

    • Jewell

      What ever works for you! Just as long as you get up there :-)

      January 17, 2014

  • Mary

    Hey all, last minute decision to join this meetup! Are there any opportunities to join a carpool still left? I'm flexible on departure time and location. Thanks, looking forward to meeting everyone!

    January 14, 2014

    • Mary

      Okay great, thanks!

      January 16, 2014

    • Mary

      Hey Samir, if you still have space can you send me a message at [masked] with the details of where to meet? Thanks!

      January 17, 2014

  • RJ

    Just signed up for the trip. Have zero experience with winter sports, so should be a nice adventure. I'll be leaving after work from the Reston area around 3-4pm. I probably have room for 4 comfortably if anyone needs a ride.

    December 30, 2013

    • Mary

      Hey RJ - any chance you still have room in your car?

      January 14, 2014

    • RJ

      I still have room. I have a 4x4 Dodge ram quad cab with a 6 foot covered bed, so I have room for 4 with plenty of room for equipment. If you're interested shoot me an email at [masked], so we can coordinate pickup time . That goes for anyone that is interested.

      January 15, 2014

  • Andrew

    Hey,
    If anyone can't make the trip or changed your mind, shoot me an email through this site and I may buy your spot. Thanks!

    January 14, 2014

  • Mike

    Hey J.T.,

    Can you confirm my registration? Just want to make sure it went through okay. Also, I live in NW DC and may have room in my car if my friends don't end up coming. I opted for a sofa sleeper, hope there's one available.

    Mike

    December 29, 2013

    • Mike

      Roger that. Thank you!

      December 29, 2013

      Hi Mike, do you still have room in your car?

      1 · January 11, 2014

  • Allen

    If anyone needs a ride I'll be packed to leave Friday after work in Manassas. I live near the West Falls Metro and wouldn't mind picking someone up between work and home. I may be able to leave a few hours earlier. Plan to leave Snowshoe around 3 after a short session Sunday.

    January 4, 2014

    • Allen

      Hi Adelle. I'm not sure if I am going to make it anymore. If something changes for me I will let you know. Good luck finding a carpool buddy!

      January 11, 2014

  • Ellen C

    Since I don't have to work on Friday and have a season pass, I'm planning to leave early in the morning before rush hour so I can get some skiing in on Friday. I have space for 2 passengers in my car.

    January 8, 2014

  • Evan H.

    I had another event come up and if I can sell my ticket I will. I have an early bird price of 330 for a double occupancy room and a 2 day lift ticket. Let me know if you are interested. I'll coordinate with JT when you buy the tickets from me.

    January 5, 2014

    • Trung

      Hey Evan, I'd be interested in picking up your tickets.

      January 6, 2014

    December 31, 2013

    • Ellen C

      Aubrey, if you still want to leave at 6 you can come with me.

      January 3, 2014

    • Aubrey

      Ellen, I'd still like to carpool with you. I think I can make it to your place by 6am. I'll be bringing 1 suitcase and probably a bag or two of groceries.

      January 4, 2014

  • Brent

    Im interested in grabbing a spot on the trip.
    Under double occupancy lodging it mentions "sharing room and possibly a bed with another"
    Im cool with sharing a room but would prefer my own bed. Is the only way to guarantee my own bed to opt for single occupancy lodging?
    Thanks!

    January 4, 2014

    • J.T.

      Hi Brent, that is correct. I hope you decide to join us!

      January 4, 2014

  • Shandel

    Hey @J.T, will they be offering group lesson for us? This will be my first time, and I am pretty sure I will embarrass myself, which I don’t mind however, I do want to make it as painless as possible (literally!) so I will definitely need lessons…lol

    1 · January 2, 2014

    • J.T. [20s & 30s G.

      Hi Shandel, Do me a favor and send me an email, or respond to the email I sent requesting volunteers. I have so many events and groups, it's the only way I can properly track everything. Thank you!

      January 3, 2014

  • Ellen C

    Since I don't have to work on Friday and I have a Snowshoe season pass, I was thinking of leaving on Friday before rush hour (say 6AM) so I can get some skiing in on Friday. Would anyone else be interested in that?

      How early do you want to leave? I'll have skis plus a suitcase. I'll contribute gas money (of course).
