Pay online: www.sitzmarkmn.org ***Payment in advance is required to be included on this trip*** Join Sitzmark and other MSC members on a day trip to Spirit Mountain (www.spiritmt.com) in Duluth for just $72.19! Nonmembers may attend for $82.19. (This is just a few dollars more than the box office price adult weekend lift tickets!) This unbeatable price for a day of skiing includes the lift ticket, deluxe coach bus ride, a healthful breakfast on the bus and snacks (such as hard‐boiled eggs, bagels, orange juice, and granola bars). Rentals and lessons are available for an extra fee ($29 skis or boards; pay there; let me know when you sign up if you want lessons so they can have instructors available). In the last few years, we've had 60+ skiers each time (including many many new people) and everyone wanted to go back again! We are also offering extra lift tickets at $50.19 for people driving up on their own, which I can mail to you in advance, or you can meet us at the mountain. These tickets are only good on 1/26/19! You must be an MSC member to buy the ticket as it’s a special deal our club got and they are not available for sale to the general public. Board the bus at 7 am at the Honeywell parking lot (2600 Ridgway Parkway, Minneapolis, MN 55413; park on the southwest side of the complex, by 35W). Get cozy as the bus will be full (50 people). We’ll leave at 7:30 am sharp and serve breakfast once we get rolling; we plan to arrive at Spirit Mt around 10am. This year, our room will be on the hill! Upon arrival, just gather your equipment and head to the Slopeside Room on the lower level next to the hill to get your lift ticket, settle in, change clothes, and relax throughout the day (we reserved the room all day but cannot guarantee complete security). Pick up your rentals and arrange lessons. For the return trip, the bus will board Spirit Mountain at 5 pm for a 5:30pm departure. We plan to be back to Honeywell around 8pm. This day trip will sell out fast, so sign up ASAP. To guarantee your seat, you must pay online at www.sitzmarkmn.org or contact Sally to arrange other payment in advance. If you need to cancel, please call/email me ASAP so I can try to resell your spot. In general, if you cancel and give me plenty of notice, I’ll give you a partial refund (‐ about $10) as we have to pay credit card fees and it’s extra work to manage refunds and resell. After that, depending on when you cancel, you’ll get none or a partial refund if the bus is full. Organized by Sally Hed Dahlquist, [masked] 612‐554‐0864; co‐hosted by Nancy Peterson of Traverskis. For just $5, buy a green Sitzmark bandana so we can find each other on the slopes! I’ll have them available on the bus. PS: If you are not a member of an MSC club and paid the member price instead of the nonmember price, you will have to pay me an additional $10 on the bus or join Sitzmark for $25. If you paid the nonmember price and sign up to join the club on the trip, I will refund the $10 difference to you. If you don’t know what clubs I’m talking about (www.midwestfun.org), you should have paid the non‐member price, so bring $10 extra bucks. We’re glad you are joining us!
