Join Sitzmark, Traverskis, and other MSC club members on a day trip to Spirit Mountain in Duluth on Saturday, January 20, 2018 for just $65! Non-club members may attend for $75. This unbeatable price for a day of skiing includes the lift ticket (which would be $55 at the ticket counter, www.spiritmt.com), deluxe coach bus ride, and a continental breakfast (bagels, granola bars, bananas, orange juice, fruit snacks, and more). Rentals are available for about $20 (skis or boards), and lessons for about $15 (prices to be determined). Buy a green Sitzmark bandana on the bus for just $5 so we can find each other on the slopes! In the past few years, we’ve had over 60 skiers (including many new people) and everyone wanted to go back again!
We are also offering extra lift ticket vouchers for $45 to people who are driving up on their own and meeting us there. If you’re going another day, I can mail them to you after the trip. These vouchers are good for any day this 2017/2018 season. You must be an MSC member to buy the voucher as it’s a special deal for MSC and they are not available to the general public.
Board the bus at 7 am at the Honeywell parking lot (2600 Ridgway Parkway, Minneapolis, MN 55413; park on the southeast side of the complex). Grab a seat and get cozy, as the bus will be full (50 people). We’ll leave at 7:30 am sharp, have breakfast, watch a Warren Miller ski flick, and arrive at Spirit Mt around 10 am.
New this year: We reserved the Slopeside Room on the ground level of the lodge so we can ski in and ski out! Upon arrival, just gather your equipment (or get rentals) and head to the Slopeside Room. Get your lift ticket, sign the waiver, change clothes, and relax throughout the day. We reserved the room all day but cannot guarantee complete security.
For the return trip, the bus will board at Spirit Mountain at 5 pm and depart at 5:30 pm with another movie to speed the trip. We plan to be back at Honeywell around 8 pm. This day trip will sell out fast, so sign up ASAP. To guarantee your seat, you must pay online at www.sitzmarkmn.org/skiing.html.
