  • Ski Vacation in France!
    I am leading a culinary adventure trip to the beautiful Haute Savoie region of France March 3-11th, 2017. We will ski/board the "Portes du Soleil," 12 interconnected resorts in the French and Swiss Alps encompassing over 600km of slopes. In the evening we will experience the famous cheese dishes of the region “Fondue au Fromage” (rustic bread dipped into a simmering pot of melted mountain cheeses and wine), “Raclette” (slices of creamy melting cheese poured over boiled potatoes and eaten with cured meats), “Tartiflette” (a gratin of potatoes, lardon, and onions covered with a slightly aged soft cheese called Reblochon) and more! There is also an optional guided descent of the "Vallee Blanche" 20km of backcountry skiing/boarding on the glacier of Mont Blanc. We will also visit a cheese maker to watch cheese being made as well as a charcuterie shop to learn the art of curing meat. Accommodations for the group will be in a beautiful mountain chalet in the ski town of Morzine, France http://www.villa-solaire-morzine.com/en/villa-solaire. Cost for the trip is $2750 for double occupancy and includes accommodations, lift tickets, transportation within France and Switzerland, almost all meals, and visits to food producers. Airfare and alcohol not included. +$300 for guided descent of Mont Blanc. 8 nights- 9 days.

  • Day trip to Cascade Mountain- Saturday, Jan. 28 2017
    Hi All!!! Who is interested in a day trip to Cascade Mountain in Portage, WI? (I don't know why it says Merrimac, I couldn't delete that). Was thinking to leave Chicago around 7:30 am for the 3 hour drive, then leave the mountain by 6 pm to arrive back to the city around 9 pm. It would be great to make some new ski buddies!

  • Mt. Bohemia Trip Anyone? Mid-Jan / Mid-February
    Hey Guys, Looking to see if we can get a group up to Mt. Bohemia in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It's 7.5 hours from Chicago. This will be at least a 2.5-3 day trip including drive time. Mt. Bohemia is a mountain featuring terrain for upper-intermediate-expert skiers. There is only one blue run and the rest of the runs are blacks or double blacks. The terrain is ungroomed. If you can handle double-blue-to double blacks out west and can ski moguls decently then this is trip is for you. Since the terrain is ungroomed, the best time to go is immediately after heavy snowfall. So, people who are interested will have to have pretty flexible schedules. Ideally, anytime Sun-Thurs fits in my schedule. Chime in if you're interested! http://www.mtbohemia.com/
