We usually have 25 or 30 club members (not shown here) going on these trips, as well as a few new people from Meet-up or other sources.
Our ski club membership is comprised of active singles and couples from mid-40's to 60+ and includes professionals and entrepreneurs from throughout Orange County. We are bonded by dedication to the sport of skiing. We also have parties, wine tasting, hiking and biking trips, go to concerts and run many other activities. More information is available on our club website at balboaskiandsports.com.
This is the second of two bus trips to Mammoth our club will be running this winter. Included in the price is the bus, three nights a Sunshine Village condominiums, and the cocktail party. The bus leaves Huntington Beach at 2 pm Thursday, usually arriving in Mammoth about 8 pm for a good night's sleep. The bus will take us up to the Main Lodge Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings, and returns to the condo each afternoon. There are the local shuttles as well. No driving or other hassles, everything is taken care of. Just get on the bus, have a couple of drinks, socialize, watch a movie and you are there. We leave directly from the mountain at 4pm Sunday so we get a full day of skiing on Sunday and are still back in OC by ten.
The cost is $405 for members of the club if you sign up before January 10, $425 thereafter. Nonmembers and guests pay an extra $25. Please sign up and pay on the club website at least a few days ahead of time, although the sooner the better, because occasionally the last person or two don't get to go because of the problem of reserving and allocating beds. Your payment is your reservation. Accommodations are usually two people to a room with a two-person bed and private bathroom or single beds in the loft.
