we are planning another awesome weekend in the mountains! (Here's the link from last year's trip). RSVP "Yes" if you're interested!
Winter Mountain Snow Weekend 2012!
...눈 내리는 것을 바라보는게 좋아 (Noon Nae Ri Neun Gurt Eul Bar Rar Bo Neun Gae Jo Are) - I like watching snow falling.
Activities! Try these:
Snow Tubing - Mountain Coaster - Canopy Tour - Ice Skating
Snow Shoeing - NordicCenter - Snowmobiling - Games
The houses are ready!! Below are some pictures of the two beautiful houses we will be calling home for the weekend:
Space is limited, so RSVP soon! :)
A get-away weekend event in the mountains at Deep Creek Lake, sharing with old or new friends, with a chance to ski at Wisp, shop, snowboard, swim, and enjoy nature, while also enjoying a high quality international food experience.
This event is a weekend event - Friday to Sunday afternoon. (We can also add a 3rd night if enough people want to stay).
Where? The spacious and awesome views of "The Waves House" and one other house next door. Space is limited. The houses have been reserved for us!
Cost? We are trying to keep it low, and letting people bring their own food (some items will be purchased with the money paid towards the room).
The trip is a cultural group event, including:
- Korean food & cooking demo/lessons (mandu, bulgogi, etc.)
- Language exchange - practice with others attending.
- Noraebang/karaoke , kpop vids - English, Korean, Chinese, etc.
What the price doesn't include:
* ski passes
* equipment rental
* water park or other passes
* food or beverages
* mints on your pillow at night
We expect to bring games, etc. for the group to do together (voluntary), or to go to a local place to hang out.
Depending on location, there will be activities such as: skiing, snowboarding, shopping, sledding, skating, spa.
1. What if I don't know if I can go?
This event is expected to sell out, and we can't hold spots.
If there is a wait list, then you can probably release
your ticket and get a refund. No refund is promised.
But it is likely, since we are expecting more demand than beds.
2. What if I wanna crash out on the couch... is that cheaper or even free?
We're calling this "STANDBY RSVP" -
We may allow this on a limited basis.
3. I heard you need a car to go everywhere... how does that work?
We will deal with it. Mobile phone coverage may be weak or
have dead zones, so we will work hard to make sure people are '
able to get around.
4. I need a ride! (or) I can drive!
We will need some drivers. Drivers get special treatment:
Gas money (if we price that into the cost), toll money if needed, and smiles.
If you need a ride, then say where you are coming from.
We will suggest a pick-up location.
People will go at different times, and even different days.
Work out who you can ride with.
5. I want to share a room with my friend - can I do that?
Yes. Include it in your RSVP, and it will be confirmed.
6. I want a vegetarian menu - is that part of the plan?
Yes. Help us with shopping suggestions. There will
be meat-based dishes, and vegetarian/vegan options.
7. I don't ski - I don't snowboard - and I don't ice skate.
Is this trip for me?
Could be... it's a weekend retreat, at a place that has
skiing and other winter activities. But people go in
the summer and don't ski, so probably it will be awesome
just getting away to escape the regular life.
8. I'm only staying one night - can I pay less?
Nope. You can get someone to take your other nights,
if you work out an arrangement.
9. What if I'm loud, obnoxious, and yelling at 2am?
You may be asked to leave. Seriously. This is a
resort and other units are nearby.
10. What? I wanna stay up late and talk and play game and stuff...!
Okay. The plan is that one unit will be the "late night"
one, with the bigger kitchen and social area.
The other unit(s) will depend on the people there,
but to be fair to everyone, expect that it should be quiet by midnight.
(calm TV watching is okay, loud music & dancing is not).
11. Is there TV? Internet?
Yes, there is TV, and if possible the channels will be listed.
Internet should be available available and updates on if it is free or not will be posted.
12. Do I have to stay in the same place with the group?
Nope. You can book your own hotel in the area and join us that way.
