    Wow- this whole trip looks amazing. I would LOVE to join you Sue- just hoping I can find some lost money on the street before then or something lucky happens!!! This would be a trip to remember for a lifetime!!! Is there anyway to cut the cost or is the cost listed an absolute?!

      Kate, the only way to cut the cost is to do your own airfare with frequent flyer miles. These are group rates and if you tried doing the trip on your own you'd find it would cost much, much more than the price being offered.

      Or you could use frequent flyer miles to our departure city of Washington DC and then purchase air from there. That might also help cut the costs. Or there is the option to only do one of the weeks versus the two week option.

    At this time there are a total of 13 people signed up. One is flying with us, but only joining us in St Moritz and our final night in Zurich. So that is always an option for people if they don't want to ski/board for an entire 2 weeks. You can take off on your own to another city/country and take advantage of the group airfare, which is about $200 less than the published price.
