This 'family' oriented event features a snow castle, live music, FIREWORKS, snow sports competitions, and a poker run for all! There is also a “theme" to be announced, dressing according for fun on the hill is encouraged.
White Pass is Ski Buddies' Paul Horne's local mountain and he knows it well. The mountain offers, Alpine skiing, Groomed Nordic track and skate skiing, snowboarding (including terrain park), Back Country, and Marked Snow Shoe trails.
Ski Buddies will be staying right at the White Pass Village Inn Condo's. Amenities, some have on-suite wood stove in some rooms and GREAT outdoor heated pool. Keep in mind this is a family friendly trip.
Friday-check in and group casual dinner prepared by Paul starting at 4:15pm, till 8ish, likely inside the Nordic Center warming Yurt, followed by poolside BYOB and socializing afterwards.
Saturday – Breakfast foods are furnished in each unit, preparation is a group effort by occupants. Then snow play all day, lunch at members discretion - I recommend the High Camp Lodge. This is the main Carnival day of snow sculptures complete with a HUGE snow castle. This evening is a reasonably priced prime rib dinner or similar served in the lodge, OR join us in the Nordic Yurt for a dinner by Paul and drinks. Dinner is followed by a torch parade and fireworks display. Capping off the night is live music in the bar until midnight.
White Pass management is offering us group discounted Alpine lift passes and Nordic passes, prices to be announced. PLEASE email Paul once signed up and paid with how many passes you want, for what type and what days. I will be staying up there, Thurs. through Sun. The discounted passes will be offered through me, and are offered Fri, Sat, and Sun.
Sunday - Breakfast, then room check out, snow play rest of the day. Lunch is at members discretion.
This is a good value-oriented trip and fun annual event. Price is $225 per person, or per single bed, $450, for couple or queen bed. The snow is going to be epic this year, now is the time to ski White Pass!
Hope to see you at White Pass,
