We again have exclusive use of our favorite Cabin, just off the Highway and within two miles of Stevens Pass downhill area and only a few miles from the Nordic Center. The log and granite cabin offers a rustic feel yet features a full kitchen, three bathrooms, showers, sauna, outdoor hot tub, two fireplaces, and comfortable seating for conversation, dining and games. Sleeping is on the third-floor loft with foam mats provided. Prices will also include very basic continental breakfasts. Most dinners tend to be a potluck with the Saturday dinner as the main potluck where we invite others to join us up in the mountain for the day and then come back to the cabin to enjoy a nice dinner before heading home. Lunches, dinners, lift tickets and transportation are participants’ responsibility through most dinners tend to be potlucks with people sharing dishes. This trip is perfect for those new to Ski Buddies and provides a lot of social interaction throughout the weekend. Prepare for games, music and fun. Join Us for the Day or Saturday Potluck: Club members are welcome to join us during the day or meet us at lunch time if they come up for the day. Feel free to contact the trip leader by texting his cell phone (Cell service is spotty, so texting works the best). We’ll try to meet up around 9AM at the Clock each day on Friday and Saturday. As always, we have our official potluck on Saturday night and all are welcome to come back with us and enjoy dinner before heading back (or pass out at the lodge) Trip Coordinators (Click on Name to Contact): Kelly & Tim Murphy-Stevens, & Thai Bui Discounted Stevens Pass Ticket information: 1. 4 Day Powder | Is non-transferrable and only usable by 1 person.
