Chicago has already seen its first snow flurries of the coming season.  So, it’s time to begin planning your ski season.  We have several cross-country trips with openings available, but don’t delay and miss out.  The Quebec trip is already filled up with 26 people.

We are going to the beautiful Mt Hood area in early March where you can count on plenty of snow for great spring skiing. There are 14 people signed up, and we have room for a couple more. But hurry, as we a cut-off date of December 20 after which openings will be dependent on availability.

 For those who would like to just try out cross-country skiing, our Minocqua trip is a great opportunity to be introduced to the sport. The 3-day bus trip is scheduled for the Martin Luther King Holiday weekend.  Minocqua’s Winter Park is one of the highest regarded Nordic centers in the Midwest with a ski shop that provides high quality equipment and clothing.  A great place to rent quality skis to see if you like the sport or to buy quality, well fitted equipment.  The trip already has over 20 people signed up. Our bus holds about 45 people, so don’t delay in getting yourself a spot.

Finally, we have a cross country ski trip planned to the Plymouth, Wisconsin area where we will ski in the North Kettles and Greenbush ski area. This is a low priced, drive up on your own trip over President’s day weekend that is only about 2 ½ hours from Chicago.

We also have two downhill trips in 2018.  There is a wait list for our February trip to Sauze d’Oulx in the Italian Alps with weekend extension to Nice, France.  Our annual downhill trip to Aspen from Sunday, March 25, 2018 to Saturday, March 31, 2018, still has several openings.  We will stay at the club favorite Limelight Lodge. Continental breakfast included daily along with après ski and live music in the lunch each afternoon. Enjoy the Limelight’s outdoor pool, 2 hot tubs rooftop terrace. Aspen Mountain ski lifts are 5-minutes away or catch free buses to nearby Snowmass, Aspen Highlands or Buttermilk.  So, sign up before it’s too late! 

Check these trips out on our web site and make your winter fun!
