What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak the Grand Canyon National Park was temporarily closed, so our trip start date has been moved to June 21 – 27, 2021. Due to the change, not everyone is able to re-book for the same time, so there are some openings for FSA club members! The Flatland Ski Association is happy to announce that we are planning what could be the TRIP OF A LIFETIME – a week of Rafting the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. You can still Raft the Grand Canyon with the Flatland Ski Association! Why register so soon? Trips are limited by the National Park Service, so they sell out quickly. Many 2021 dates are already sold out. Don’t miss your chance to go! There will be a very limited number of spots, and you’ll be required to make a down payment with your registration. We’ll be travelling with Hatch River Expeditions on one of their motorized 7-Day Full Grand Canyon Expeditions. Hatch has been running rafters through the canyon since 1934! For More Information, go to www.hatchriverexpeditions.com Click “Explore Trips” then choose “Motorized Trips” and then “7 Day Full Grand Canyon Expedition.” Dates: Departs June 21 – 27, 2021 (Overnight lodging on Sunday, June 20 is included.) For those worried about how much time you’ll need off work … basically for 1 week. You’ll be flown out of the canyon early Sunday morning and either back to the starting point or the Las Vegas airport … your choice. That way, for those who have to be back at work on Monday, June 28th … it can be done! (You’ll confirm travel plans with Hatch closer to the trip.) Cost: $3,297 per Person (Includes lodging Sunday night, rafting, all meals while on the river, sleeping gear, and helicopter out of the canyon with a return flight to starting point or Las Vegas. Personal items and alcohol not included.) Deposit: $500 Due at Registration Hatch River Expeditions is temporarily holding spots for FSA club members, but it will be opened to the general public in the next few weeks. If you want to pay by check you must register by phone. If you want to pay by credit card you can do it online or by phone, but online is the preferred method.

When they answer, tell them you want to sign up for the Flatland Ski Association Trip and the date of June 21, 2021. Office Hours Monday – Thursday 8:00 am until 5:00 pm, Friday 8:00 am until 4:00 pm. Arizona is on Mountain STANDARD Time! Questions: E-mail or call Paul Snyder (Past FSA Activities Director) [masked] (314)[masked] FINAL NOTE: This trip “departs” from Lee’s Ferry, near Marble Canyon (Page), Arizona. The FSA is not organizing any sort of group transportation to get out there! (With the possibility of people coming from 4 states and 9 cities that’s just not practical!) Once members have registered, we will share the names so you can arrange group travel on your own, if you choose to do so! And remember, there’s a LOT to see in the Southwest … you might consider adding on some days to see more!
