TAOS, NEW MEXICO March 3–10, 2018 (Saturday to Saturday)

Join SSC as we ski in Taos Ski Valley, located in the rugged Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Taos is renowned for its expert terrain but also includes a tremendous number of beginner and intermediate runs. Like all resorts in the Eastern Rockies, Taos was buried in snow last year. Taos enjoys sunshine more than 300 days a year. Fast Facts: 300 inches of annual snowfall, 110 trails (24% beginners, 25% intermediate, 51% expert), fifteen chairlifts, base 9,207 feet, highest lift 12,481 feet, vertical drop 3,274 feet, uphill capacity 16,500 skiers per hour and hardly a lift line anywhere. Experience ski-in/ski-out lodging at the Snakedance Condos and Spa, a perfect location–the heart of the ski village, surrounded by many shops and services! Each suite is an individually owned and decorated 2-bedroom/2-bath with a full kitchen and living room with fireplace. Hotel amenities include an on-site spa, fitness facility and guest lounge. Off the ski slopes, enjoy tubing on Strawberry Hill, take a guided full moon snowshoe hike, or race up a snowmobile trail. After a long day of skiing, take advantage of the hotel's sauna and hot tub, get a massage from the hotel’s masseuse, or just grab your tablet or a book from the hotel’s private library and curl up for the night by one of the hotel’s fireplaces. SSC's basic package, priced at $1,838 per person double occupancy, will include roundtrip air (we expect to depart from Harrisburg, with a possible change to BWI), all bus transfers, 7 nights' lodging, a 5 of 6-day lift ticket, group porterage and a welcome reception. A sixth-day lift ticket is available for an additional $64. Also included: The General Manager will host a group dinner at his house Monday evening, and this is a real treat! The Inn offers fine and casual dining and breakfast daily for all guests at your own expense. For more information, contact Mark at [masked] or[masked]
