Frequently Asked Questions

Q.Do I need to know how to ski to go on a ski trip?
A.Definitely not. We have a number of members who travel with us every year and are not skiers. Approximately 15-20% of our travelers are "newbies" and have gotten into this sport by going on ski trips with us and learning how. Ski lessons are highly recommended.

Q.I'm just a beginner skier, will I have to ski by myself?
A.Definitely not. Every ski trip going out has skiers from virtually all skill levels. By attending the monthly Club parties and individual pre-trip parties you will get to know some of your fellow travelers and can seek out others with your skill level. Usually, after arrival at your destination and you begin skiing, those of similar skill find each other.

Q.I'm traveling alone, do I have to find a roommate?
A.No. We'll match you up with a same-sex roommate or you can pay an additional fee and have a room of your own. Most trips are based on double occupancy.

Q.The trip I wanted to go on is full, what should I do?
A.The options you have here are: Find a second choice trip to sign up with or contact the trip leader from your first choice list and get put on their "Wait List" or do both. However, be sure to pay close attention to cancellation dates for all trips you apply.

Q.Can I snowboard on all Club trips?
A.Maybe. Most ski areas welcome snowboarders, however, some don't. Check with the Trip Leader for a trip you are considering, before signing up. They will know.

Q.How can I pay for my trip?
A.Write us a check. We will also take cash; receipt provided. Your credit card is also accepted, contact your trip leader for details.

Q.Are lift tickets included in the price of the trips?
A.No. Lift tickets are additional. Experience has shown that we can't find a "one-size-fits-all" lift ticket to include in the package price. Some people ski only 3 days, some insist on skiing 6 days. By not including lift tickets, everyone pays the same price for the basic trip. You can, however, buy your lift ticket through your Trip Leader in advance and if there is a group discount available, any savings will be passed on to you.

Q.Do all trips stay in hotels?
A.No. Some trips will stay in condominiums. Amenities will vary so check with your Trip Leader. Typically condo's are based on a quad occupancy.

Q.Will I have to buy ski equipment before I go on a trip?
A.No. Trip Leaders make arrangements with ski equipment rental companies to rent skis, poles, and boots to our travelers, usually at a discounted rate. Check with your Trip Leader for details.

Q.How can I become more involved with the Club?
A.Check with any Trip Leader or Board Member, if you would like to become a Trip Leader. Plus, there are a number of other areas that need assistance from time to time and don't require the obligations of leading a trip.

Q.I don't want to overlook something, what should I pack for my trip?
A.Over the years we have compiled this checklist of things to take along. You can add to this list as you need to, but this is a pretty good list of basics. If you are not sure what an item might be (what the heck is a gaiter?), talk with your Trip Leader or any other Club Member. Ski Club Members LOVE to talk skiing, this could be a great "ice-breaker" to meet new friends.
