Hello everyone. What a crazy year this is becoming! As I wrote this article we just came out of a record setting Memorial Day Holiday Weekend with temperatures pushing 100 degrees! Crazy! That makes thinking about winter ski trips rather difficult. I just hope the extreme heat wave brings us extreme snowfall too.
It is my pleasure to announce that MSC is returning to Indianhead, BigSnow Resort this next year. And by an overwhelming positive response from the trip surveys, we are keeping the trip to early January. Actual date is January 4-6, 2019. The bus schedules and pickup points will be the same as in years past.
Also based from the surveys and the many, many comments I received from lots of people, we are expanding the trip! With that in mind, I was able to convince BigSnow to allocate 16 rooms in the Lodge. This will allow us to take an additional 30-40 skiers! This is in addition to the Trailside condos and Complex units we had last time. So, this also means taking 4 buses. We haven’t taken 4 buses to Winter Carnival in quite a few years.
And here is some more good news. The trip pricing remained the same as last year! And don’t forget that we can ski at both Indianhead and Black Jack right next door. There will be shuttles running back and forth so you can ski at both places. We have the same lodging options as last year including 24 of the slope side condos and 20 of the Complex units with various rooming options. Want to party with your friends? The bigger your group the better your pricing. So it is not too early to get your group together.
So that is all I have to share with you now. As we get all the details finalized they will be distributed to all the clubs later this summer. So watch your internal club publications for the trip opening for registrations. If you want to reach me with any questions or comments, you may contact me at [email protected].
Enjoy your summer! Snow will be here before you know it!
