Come join us for a
wonderful weekend of world-class skiing in Utah with 3 ski areas to choose from.
Our bus will be taking us to Brighton,
Snowbird and the Canyons. These resorts offer a great
variety of terrain along with beautiful lodges to relax in between your runs.
Well depart the Wyoming Department
of Transportation parking lot promptly at 3:00pm Thursday, March 2nd. Please be there no
later than 2:45. Our bus will take us to the 3 ski areas listed above and pick us up after
the lifts close the 1st and 2nd day. On March
5th we will have an earlier departure from the Canyons to allow for a more reasonable
return time to Cheyenne.
The trip price includes bus transportation
on a luxury 40 passenger cruiser, complete with restrooms and television. Snacks and
beverages will be provided on the bus along with movies and a dinner stop along the way.
Lodging will be at the newly-remodeled Best Western Garden Inn City Center in downtown
Salt Lake City. They offer a large outdoor hot tub, and a deluxe breakfast buffet every
morning. The hotel also has an on-site restaurant serving lunch and dinner. There are
plenty of other dining choices within walking distance of our hotel. Downtown Salt Lake
City offers plenty of entertainment, shopping, nightlife and brew pubs. TRAX, a light rail
system with free fare within the downtown area of Salt Lake City, is available to take you
to other exciting places. The hotel has a shuttle bus for groups of guests.
