What we're about

In the hustle and bustle of everyday life sometimes it's hard to find the time to get away, let alone all the time to plan and organize a trip. That's what TIOA is for. We have a list of trips available and all you have to do is find the time to join us. If there is a trip you want to do, then let me know and I will figure out the logistics and post it. If you are a beginner and don't feel comfortable, or don't have the proper gear this is the perfect way to Take It Outdoors in a safe, fun and friendly way. If you aren't a beginner and are looking for a challenge; we have those trips as well.

When you come out on a trip you will find that TIOA is a fun loving community from all walks of life. Come on out and join the fun!!

See you soon!!

NOTE - A lot of planning goes into the trips we run. Please be considerate of all the members and the organizers of the group and do not be a "No Show". I know that sometimes issues spring up (family issues, medical, work, etc.) and that is completely understandable. In those cases please send a message saying you won't be able to make it. If you don't plan on attending, don't intend to mark it on your calendar or don't intend to make a best effort to come to the event please, please, please do not RSVP "yes" until you are ready.

Thank you much!!

Bear Creek Mountain Resort

Wednesday nights aren't just for Kayaking. We're taking our Wednesday program to the snow at Bear Creek Mountain Resort in Macungie, PA. (https://www.bcmountainresort.com/play/snowsports/) Join us for fun on the snow, or just revelry in the lodge. Bear Creek has generously offered us discount tickets to TIOA members so we can get out and enjoy the winter. It doesn't matter if you are a seasoned skier, okay boarder, or a total newbie, you can come enjoy all this local mountain has to offer, an excellent evening out with friends. We will have a meeting point each week, if you want to stay as a group, you can, if you would like to go off on your own, that is great too. Everyone is invited to explore the slopes at their own pace. Afterwards, we can all meet in the Grille for a few post snow brews and a bite to eat. Here's how it works: 1) RSVP and include your email address 2) We will send you a direct link and login information for our group at Bear Creek 3) Use this link to buy your ticket online (You're buying directly from Bear Creek but at our club discount, no extra fees or taxes, but we won't say no if you want to show some support to TIOA programs in your own way) 4) PRINT YOUR TICKET VOUCHER AT HOME 5) Meet us Wednesday night and play 6) Stick around for beverage and refreshments in the Grille (not included in your lift ticket purchase) 7) Sign up and do it again next week too... and the next week.. and the next week..... and stay alert as we work out some weekend and day trips to other mountains. We're not posting the price or login info here because of our agreements with Bear Creek. But expect it to be well under normal pricing and likely under "discount" prices at places like Buckmans, Saltzers, or your Township Rec and Parks Department. If you can't make it to the mountain by 5, don't worry. If we know you're coming, we can look for you on the mountain or use the comments section to arrange meetings later in the evening. Program Rules: Our ticket information is for TIOA members. Login information is not posted online and not shared outside of the group. By signing up and purchasing a ticket, you agree to all Bear Creek Lift Ticket Terms https://www.bcmountainresort.com/play/snowsports/ and release TIOA of any liability relating to your participation in snowsports.
