Snowboarding/Ski Weekend Trip

  • Jan 24, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hey Everyone!

I always wanted to learn to snowboard, but never got a chance to. So I decided I'm going to head to Killington Resort, Vermont in January because I never been to Vermont before and gives time for me to save up. 

UPDATE on 12/28/13

I already booked 17 people who have already paid.

Thank you! 


If you are interested in going, please call Turn of River Lodge to see if they have any available dorm bed for you to stay. Warning you must have at least $500 because the lifting tickets and rental stuff are expensive.

    Hi Folks! Safe travels to Vermont tomorrow. Remember your thermals it will be cold. Also a face mask is key they have extensive snow making at Killington so the guns will be going. If anyone has any questions for a local feel free to ask me. Also I have rooms available at a lodge about 10 minutes away if anyone needs accommodations. Happy trails everyone! Enjoy your Vermont trip. Hope to see you on the trails.

      Jacque, during the day if you guys want to check out some cool picture perfect areas I would recommend, Kent Pond which has a frozen water fall near it and the Chittenden Dam. Its all within about 15-20 min from Killington. I made a map for you https://mapsengine.goo...­

      also a must if you love great food is ROOTS over in Rutland. Locally sourced ingredients, and absolutely delicious food for a good price. Reservations are recommended as the place is small and is almost always packed on Fridays.

    Hi Dee, can you tell us the check-in time and when you plan to arrive at the lodge? As I said before, my friend and I will be mostly boarding Friday and Saturday. We will leave Sunday morning. We just need to know whether we would be able to drop our stuff off or when to meet the rest of the group. Also, I know this is last minute but if anyone else is on the same schedule and needs a ride lemme know!

      Awesome...no rush...i figure it cant be overly complicated and want to get business out of the way so that i may mentally focus on pleasure.

    Haven't posted in this event yet- but I just bought a lift ticket so I'm officially committed. Not sure if we've decided on a hotel yet, but I can recommend this place:
    www.turnofriverlodge.com/

    I've stayed there a couple times before. Has some dorm style rooms that can accommodate multiple people and will only cost you $30/night. Also has a common area downstairs with a couple pong tables to please all the 20-somethings in the house.

    On another note I've got 15 years of skiing experience, so I'd be more than happy to give a lesson.

    I've set up a group to go before in West Virginia and they usually offer a decent group rate if there's a certain number of people...this looks great! Would love to go depending on what the price ends up being
