Ski Trip Planning for 2013

Hey folks,

Our friends at Boston Ski & Social Club are about to announce their 2013 Ski Vacations.  Prices and Logistics are being worked out but if you're interested in traveling with other young professionals across the country, then here are some options that we're working out.

Madonna, Italy, 01/26-02/03/2013

Whistle, BC 02/02-02/09/2013 ... I'm thinking about doing this trip myself

St Anton, Austria 02/15-02/23/2013

Aspen/Snowmass, CO 03/02/-03/09/2013

Big Sky, MT 03/13-03/20/2013

 

For those of you who prefer sticking around the DC area, we'll probably work with the DC Ski Meetup to arrange one-day and weekend ski trips to the surrounding area (WV, PA, MD).

    So were any dates nailed down? If we're throwing out suggestions, I'm interested in Aspen or Big Sky in March.

      This turned out to not be a Ski Planning Event where we discussed where and when to go. It turned out to be an event where Jack asked Greg (SkiGuy) and I how to set up a ski trip. Based on the discussion, I don't expect there to be any long distance (Western, New England or International) trips. Mostly, I think that the group will just try to link up with trips that are planned by other groups.

      Thanks for the update. I'm looking for a Western trip. Let me know if that is ever a possibility here. In the meantime I'll be looking for other Ski trip Meetup groups!

    Sorry I wasn't able to attend last night. I fell asleep after a long and active weekend. Hopefully we can arrange these at more convenient times?

      Yes, please share the conclusions from last night's meeting. I showed up at The Exchange at 9pm and everyone had already left. I'm excited to see what trips the group is thinking about!

      For local trips, we're thinking Liberty, Timberline, Roundtop, and Wisp.

    Bottom line: Group discounts don't really exist these days or they're nominal at best. DYI ends up being the cheapest way. We can try organizing trips off Groupon/LivingSocial deals too.

      If we missed anybody else last night, I'm deeply sorry.

    Jim, Greg, and I met last night to talk about[masked] Skip plans. We've decided that the easiest way was to partner up with other ski groups. The "official" ski season likely be mid-December to mid-February. For local trips, we'll work with Jim to announce weekend trip by Tuesday of that week. For example, if we were thinking about a day trip on 1/5/2012, then we'll announce that 1/1/2012. Day trips will not require deposits and will be largely a DYI with designated meeting times for lunch and dinner.

    For regional trips, we'll work with Greg since the DC Ski Club has better relationships with the local resort companies. They also have better chance at meaningful discounts.

    I know that DC Social Sports Club will be organizing another trip to Timberline, WV, in January and renting a group house. Advance deposits will be required since we're renting a house and space will be limited.

    I envision this as a "If you're interested in going on a ski trip and you're looking for other people to go, then let's all meet together and figure out some options." We don't do enough planning meetings for this group so this is a good opportunity for us to sit down together. The only place that I know for certain is Timberline WV in January. I'm tempted to go to Whistler but don't know if can bounce for an entire week.

    I don't quite understand this event. Is someone from the Boston group coming down to talk about the trips? Are you going to have sign-up sheets for the various trips? What do you foresee happening at this event?

    I've done 5 trips to the Madonna di Campiglio region (stay in a small town of Dimaro). It's an incredible place with skiing for days. Good mix of trails up to World Cup runs. Not much off-piste unless there is a ton of snow. Food & wine & espresso are to die for. I'll be heading back in Feb 2013. Ciao!
