When: January 24, 2009 8:00 AM
Where: Click the link below to find out!
Meetup Description: If you've never been, Mount Snow is a wicked fun mountain, with not only a great variety of trails (wide double-green cruisers to giant moguls, tree skiing, and super steep double blacks), but also has great spots for apres-ski food, fun & music.
New this year, for the shredders, Mount Snow has turned the entire Carinthia ski area into a terrain park, with a skate park at the base lodge and halfpipes, rails & jibs all over the place.
This event will be a joint event with several groups including the Get Out Philly group, Philly Freeriders group, and the XPLOR group. So you'll get to meet a diverse group of people all looking to shred it up!
The cost for a two day lift ticket is $101. The on-mountain price is $135, so you're saving a lot! We'll need to collect this in advance since last year we came up short.
Please note, we are limiting availability to only 8 people, first paid first goes. No maybes for this one. Thanx!
Rentals and lessons:
Please bring cash for these, as we will need to pay for all of them at once, when we get there (and Amazon Payments doesn't allow us to change the price.) If you want to send me a check for the total so you don't have to worry about it, you can do that too.
One day equipment rental: $32
Two day equipment rental: $57
One day group clinic: $30
Two day group clinic: $50
Group clinics are two hours long, and are for all skill levels. Prices for clinics and rentals are the same whether you are skiing or snowboarding.
If you've never been on skis or a snowboard before, they have a special introductory package which gets you ski/snowboard rental, a two hour group clinic, and lower mountain access, all for $55. This is only for Saturday; if you want to ski Sunday, you will have to purchase a one day lift ticket (at $57) and a one day rental (for $32).
We will be staying in a cozy little 3bedroom, 2 baths cabin. Fully furnished and wifi accessible. And I quote, "Mt Snow Chalet is warm and cozy with open living area, sectional sofa, woodstove/fireplace, large dining area, all new kitchenware and bedding. We have Cable TV in the living room and every bedroom and offer free WIFI Internet Service. We also offer a washer and dryer. Our large deck contains a gas grill.The Chalet is set back from the road and protected by trees which makes it cool and comfortable in the summer." With a full group of 8, the lodging cost should be about $55each for the weekend.
Carpooling is usually self evident and self organized, I will help organize carpooling assignments as the time nears. The drive up to the cabin with minnimal stops is about 6hours.
Weekend trip to my favorite mountain in VT for about $156 for 2nights cabin lodging and 2days ski. Leaving Friday evening Jan23rd and returning Sunday night Jan25th.
Please RSVP and pay with the Philly Freeriders group to make things easier. Thanx! --> http://www.meetup.com/Philly-Freeriders/calendar/9271251/
