Holiday Valley Ski Weekend

Holiday Valley is the biggest  and best ski area within 6 hours of Ann Arbor, and the hardest ski trip in the troop this year.  There is a wide variety of difficulty to satiate everyone from beginners to experts with more skiing avalible than you can do in a weekend. We will stay in the Red House cabins and ski for two solid days, giving your skiing skill a major boost. 

We will meet at 5:30 on Friday at the St. Thomas Parking Lot and get in late to the Red House cabins.  We will go skiing the following day, the first part of the day as troop run lessons, and the last part as free time.  Similarly to the ski nights, rentals are avalible.  We will go to the wonderful church in Ellicotville with the annually apperciated pastor.  The next day we will again ski then go home at 4:00, arriving back at about 10:00.

We will be taking signups in the next few weeks, but you need to be at AT LEAST 2 OF THE SKI NIGHTS.  If you absoultely cannot, then you must speak to your PL.  This is the coolest ski trip of the year, don't miss it!!

We are sleeping in cabins, so bring cabin camping gear (still bring a sleeping bag). You should also bring money for two on the road meals (fast food) plus money for hot chocolate/snacks in the ski lodge.
