Celebrating the start of the year with western Wisconsin mountains. Leaving Friday after work, returning Sunday! Perfect for beginners as well as for advanced skiers.
We will be skiing at Mt LaCrosse - the Mississippi River valley with one of the steepest runs in the Midwest and some other fun terrain for those who don't want steeps but want to brush up on their skiing technique and/or get their ski legs ready for a western trip.
We will be staying in the town of LaCrosse at the Days Inn. Pool & hot tub Saturday night? Hot breakfast each morning.
There is a restaurant/bar in the hotel or we may walk a couple blocks to Shenanigans for games and fun.

*Round trip bus ride from/to Chicago
*2-day lifts: Mt La Crosse
*2 nights lodging
*2 days breakfast
*1 dinner: Friday pizza & salad dinner on the bus

A group dinner for Saturday will be planned, but the costs will be on your own.
