Alpine Valley Ski Day

Today is our final downhill ski event before the big Holiday Valley Ski Weekend. We'll be heading up to Alpine Valley for a day of downhill instruction and fun! We'll be running our own instructional groups, thanks to the PLC members who spent time doing ski instructor training over the Christmas holiday. You'll get to learn proper technique from us in the morning and then you'll have time to practice later in the afternoon. Most Troop 8 scouts will tell you that skiing is one of their favorite outings, and many scouts learned to ski in the troop!

We'll be meeting at 8:30AM SHARP at the St. Thomas parking lot (note different location from last year). Please be on time since we have to pay for tickets up-front we don't have time to wait for you if you're late! If you are not in our parking lot count you will not get a lift ticket!

No experience downhill skiing is necessary, and if you don't own downhill equipment everything (boots, poles, skis) is included in the rental price. This trip (and all the other ski day trips) count as pretrips for the Holiday Valley ski weekend. You must attend at least two ski trips with us to come on Holiday Valley (though we recommend more, if you can!) Note that this trip is FAIR WEATHER ONLY. That means that we may have to cancel if there's no snow, or rain, etc. We'll make the call by Friday night. Please watch your email or check back here for updates.

PLC arrive 5-10 minutes early, if possible.
