Let it snow! At Winter Park, that amounts to 369 inches of snow per year.
We'll return to the versatile, alluring, ever-popular Winter Park and Mary Jane for our
first Alpine trip of the season, Dec 15-17, 2006.
Pack your gear and board the bus Friday evening with old chums and friendly new faces.
Relax, have a snack, and let a pro do the driving. Snooze on the way home after a Sunday
on the slopes.
At our destination, one lift ticket gives you two trail systems. On the Winter park
side, you'll find magnificent sweeping view over the Continental Divide and a variety of
terrain to suit every skier and boarder. Wide open groomers? Certainly! There are also
plenty of steep pitches with challenging bumps that will test your conditioning.
Naturally, Winter Park has halfpipes and other delights that beckon boarders.
Save some energy for famous Mary Jane, with her hair-raising black diamond trails and
glades, or the more mellow glides down Sunnyside. Above it all, there's high and mighty
Parsenn Bowl. Explore at www.skiwinterpark.com
The Vintage Hotel is our home for the weekend. A full service resort, the Vintage is in
sight of the Winter Paik entrance, and offers free shuttle service to the base. In
addition to the dining room and bar, the hotel has a headed outdoor pool and gut tub. Our
happy group will swap stories at a casual, convivial wine and cheese party. The Vintage is
a non-smoking facility. Check out www.vintagehotel.com
Is shopping on your agenda? Do you want an evening of music and martinis? The town of
Winter Park puts out the welcome mat by providing a free shuttle bus to points of interest
in the area. We'll make sure you have the schedule.
We'll be ready to take your reservation during the annual Ski Club Chili Supper, on
October 21, 1006, at the Knights of Columbus Hall. Transportation and lodging is $190 per
person double occupancy in a standard hotel room, or $210 for a studio room with
kitchenette. Tune up your equipment, think snow, and mark your calendar for Dec 15-17.
Lift tickets? Consider the possibilities.
