Meet and Ski

Rochester Mn Traverski Ski & Sports Club will be hosting a Meet and Ski at Welch Village, January 12, 2013.  Per the club newsletter, the theme will be pirates, so dress like one.

The usual meeting area is one of the fire pits near Madd Jaxx.  Madd Jaxx is the east chalet and is located down what *appears* to be a service road to the left (as you face the chalet from the parking lot) of the main chalet.

There may be a discount lift ticket price available for purchase but I'm not aware of that at this time...this is "past event" recollection:)  More info to be posted once I have it.

12/27/12 update:  The host, Traverski, has a theme for this meet-n-ski...Pirates.  So bring your hat, eye patch, parrot or whatever else you may have.  Burgers, brats and hot dogs are provided around the lunch hour.  I would imagine this would start around 11 and run until the food is gone.

    Lift tickets are $35 available at MAdd JAxx from Traverski or a Sitzmark member. If you need rental you need to go back to the Main chalet and go to group sales and tell them you are with Traverski and the cost is $25. Sorry for the inconvenience

    I will be running the event for Traverski. We will be selling discount tickets but not rentals. I do not have prices for the lift tickets yet but hope to have them tomorrow. If you are a Mayo employee you can buy lift tickets for $37.00, If you have a friend with a season pass you can purchase a ticket for $35.00. Tyrol does sell lift tickets but not sure on the price and do offer rentals so if you have time to stop by Tyrol, I would recommend going there.

    While I can certainly run a 1-1.5hr lesson, I can't provide rentals :)

    Welch Village has rental, lift ticket and lessons for several price points. I see they raised their prices this season. A 3-time rental, lesson and lift ticket deal is $179+tax for those who may wish to really get into skiing (or boarding). Seems like alot, but $60 for a day isn't that bad (much better than up north or out west).

    Rentals: Tyrol Ski here in Rochester may have good deals on daily rentals.

    Lift ticket: Welch sells online for $39...seems like Tyrol used to have a discount ticket but my memory is vague on that.

    Depending on how many would like a lesson, we'll work something out perhaps.

    I will need the lesson more than likely but I am a quick study! Also, I will be renting the equipment and so I am prepared, what is the estimated cost with rental and lift tickets for the day. I can't wait to get going again.
