Annual Boyne 4-Day Weekend at Ski-Out Ultimate Party Mansion (Official Date)

  • Jan 24, 2013 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

(Paypal is charging at least $4 per transaction, Amazon is not)

I forgot to write that everyone will receive $25 to $30 back after the trip from the returned damage deposit, as long as it is returned to me (nothing damaged).  To officially reserve your spot, be sure to either write me a check, pay me in cash, or pay me online though paypal or amazonpayments at jimstange at gmail.com.  Once you pay, I will move your name to the RSVP list and will occasionally update the site to show what beds are left.

If you were there last year you remember that I was terribly sick with food poising or the flu or both, but still managed to ski and tube a bit at my event, but then did it all again just a few weeks later when Andrew planned another one and had the absolute time of my life. I fully believe this will be one of the great meetups of the year, and I’m confident it will fill up months before we leave (details to come).

I intend to leave very early from work on Thursday, around 1 or 2PM to ensure maximum party time and open up the house for other early party people.  I'm hoping to carpool with a few people (email me if you can leave that early).

I’m not even going to go into detail about how great the house is, how close it is to the mountain (you can ski from the lodge to the lift), or how much fun a cool group of people could have in a huge house with so much to offer. The general idea will be to ski half off with the Shell passes on Friday and Sunday, and tube and/or XC ski and/or party and relax on Saturday when skiing is full price.

This time, to alleviate all confusion about sleeping arrangements, you will buy a specific type of sleeping situation. Prices are for the full 4 days (3 nights). Once you buy a spot you are free to sell it to someone else or even split it in two if need be.  I took the bedroom arrangements and capacity straight from the listing, so it must be accurate.  The floor spots are to ensure that beds aren't wasted because, inevitably, one or two people always fail to show.  As with all of these trips, there are no refunds, but feel free to sell your spot to one of the many people who will eventually be on the very long waiting list.  I've already put up half the money for this on my own, please don't leave me in the cold for long.

FULL--Master bedroom King w/ TV & bathroom; (Robin, Terri)

2 people--2nd Master King w/ TV & bathroom; $320 (might be sold very soon)

FULL--Queen bedroom with TV; (Brian and Amy)

2 people--2 Full beds w/ TV; $260 (per bed, two couples in the room) (lisa m and friend)

1 man left--Lower bedroom, Men, sleeps 5, full and bunks for singles; $125 (Scott J, Matteo Pra, James P, Mike B)

FULL--Down stairs room attached to bathroom, Women, sleeps 5, full and bunks for singles; $125 (Kim G, Erin M, Colleen D, Julia, Laurne)

FULL (Pete, Marisa) 2 people--Floor spots (likely take spots of no-shows, happens every year); $110

 

To officially reserve your spot, be sure to either write me a check, pay me in cash, or pay me online though paypal or amazonpayments at jimstange at gmail.com

    Epic time was had by all! Can't wait until next year!

    Sorry I was so lame on this trip...turns out I had / have strep throat. It didn't hit me till I got there, and I didn't want to be the source of any drama, so I just tried to ignore it. If I could have ignored getting my car stuck I would have done that also. If I infected anybody, I sincerely apologize, but at least now you know what you probably have, and why I wasn't my normal bundle of positive energy.

      If you beat me that handily at ping pong with Strep..... Lets just say I'm not sure I want a rematch!!

  • Chip D.

    You all going to be up for awhile? If so I might try to stop by for a bit.

    January 26, 2013

    • Chip D.

      Ok. Probably 1/2 hr out if any one is still up then, otherwise I'll see those who venture over to superbowl

      January 27, 2013

    • Chip D.

      Is anyone skiing at Boyne today?

      January 27, 2013

  • Erin

    Hey, anyone know someone who might want to buy my spot? I believe there are several open spots in the girls' room (if several people want to come together) and I'm willing to sell mine at a discount. Let me know! Post a comment here or give me a call. [masked]

    January 22, 2013

  • James P

    Don't forget: bathing suit for the free outdoor hot tub or Waterpark, Board games, earplugs, clothes for snow tubing.

    January 22, 2013

    • Pete

      You rock James! I just got fired up reading you're "brochure"!

      January 22, 2013

  • Chip D.

    For those skiing Boyne as a FYI the Superbowl lift will be closed, so don't plan to go to that area otherwise you'll be hiking out. Have fun all.

    i'm sorry i never created an official food spreadsheet, but we've done fine in the past without them. usually everyone brings more than enough food regardless. we'll work out the breakfasts and dinners once we get up there and talk, and lunch is on your own or leftovers. most perishable stuff gets eaten first. it's all good.

    January 22, 2013

  • lisa m.

    Jim, Are linens provided?

    January 21, 2013

    • Jim S

      yes, but i can't hurt to bring your own favorite pillow or extra blanket just in case

    Selling my spot. If you know anyone who is interested, let me know. Have fun!

    January 21, 2013

  • Amy

    Not sure about the spreadsheet either. I'm bringing a garlic shrimp dish and Brian is bringing taquitos:)

    January 21, 2013

    • Brian K.

      but it is unlikely a big red truck will appear this year, so don't get stuck people...

      January 21, 2013

    • lisa m.

      I bought some Mac and chz and a veggie lasagna and various snacks. Plus some paper products!

      January 21, 2013

  • Lauren

    I am not sure what is happening on the food and utensils end of things, but I will bring chili and cornbread. Is there a spreadsheet I am missing?

    is anyone planning to go up on Friday after work?

    Hey folks! I work at Boyne Mtn. at the ticket window and ski school desk on the weekends so I hope to see everyone Saturday evening. Definitely get the Shell gas coupons - such a great 2 for 1 deal. If you're new to skiing/riding and/or planning to take a lesson, note that you must specifically tell us you want the "Discover Michigan" deal or the "Learn to ski month" deal sto get the discounted beginner package price. If not, we'll just charge you the regular price. These deals are for novices only, with lessons at 12:30. Rentals are for all day. If you at least know how to stop, you're a level 2 and beyond that deal. Regular lesson times are 10am & 2:30pm. Go to ski school desk to sign up or call ahead, check in at desk at least 30 min early, 1 hr early if getting the package w/rentals. Remember, friends don't let friends teach friends to ski!

    January 13, 2013

    • lisa m.

      Thanks Bettina! So the shell coupons are still available?

      January 13, 2013

    • Scott J.

      I just got the 2 for 1 deal yesterday when I filled up at Shell. You get a stamped coupon and stamped receipt, which have to be attached to each other and signed. Who else is getting one? Let's coordinate, so we each get a free day.

      January 13, 2013

  • James P

    I will start the who is making/bringing what conversation.
    I will be making French toast and scrambled eggs for Saturday and Sunday mornings. I will bring the syrup, butter and catsup.

  • lisa m.

    Anything still open for a couple Jim?

    December 23, 2012

    • lisa m.

      Ok. I'm having a hard time figuring out what's left. It looks like the 2 full beds and the king above is that all. Lmk and I can get back to you. Thx.

      December 24, 2012

    • Jim S

      yes, those two full beds, hope you and a friend can make it (and i hope you're healthy enough to party hard with us too!)

    November 15, 2012

  • James P

      Hey Julia, the link is not working. Thoughts?

      November 13, 2012

    • Scott J.

      Julia, please let me know when the 2 for 1 is available, not sure how I will know otherwise. Thx!

      November 13, 2012

  • Jim S

    ladies room is full, sorry slow pokes. however, two ladies can always share a full bed, right?

    November 9, 2012

  • Jim S

    If you are using paypal, there is at least a $4 charge per transaction, which will come out of the money you get back from me with the damage deposit. If you want to save some money, pay me in person or mail a check, FYI. Amazon might be cheaper.

    November 9, 2012

  • Pete

    Hi Jim, I just sent payment for the 2 floor spots.

    November 8, 2012

  • Brian K.

    Jim, I just want to clarify that this is for all 4 nights only, you have to pay for all 4? Not all of us want to take days off of work for a ski trip 3 hours away. Let me know.

    November 4, 2012

    • Jim S

      sorry, the original trip was 4 nights, this is for 3, and i forgot to change that detail in paragraph 4. you don't have to take time off work if you don't want to. but many people can take fri off, and drive up thr night. some will drive up fri night. it's up to the individual.

      November 4, 2012

    • Jim S

      and if you think boyne is 3 hours away, you either live way closer than the rest of us, or drive like a crazy person.

      November 4, 2012

  • Julia G

    Hi! I would really like to attend, preferably a single if available or a floor spot. Is there still room?

    October 31, 2012

    • Jim S

      only 2 have paid so far

      October 31, 2012

  • Dave S.

    I would absolutely love to go to this event. I've wanted to fly up in the past and this would be a great opportunity to air pool. I see 28 on the waiting list but only one attending. I'm not sure what this means. What do I need to do to find out if there are spots available?

    October 31, 2012

    • Scott J.

      Air pooling sounds like fun--if you have the space count me in! Also want to chat with you about flight training. I started years ago, never finished, and now I have the time and money for planes. Thx!

      October 31, 2012

    • Jim S

      it means that 2 people have paid so far
