WHAT HAPPENS ON A TYPICAL DAY-TRIP?
We gather at each bus stop 10-15 minutes before the bus arrives and introduce ourselves. When the luxurious bus comes, we drop off our ski bags with the driver and register with the Bus Captain as we board the bus. Each happy skier chooses a seat that will be their own for the day.
When the bus arrives at the destination, the Drive-Up Coordinator or BC will distribute trail passes, and show renters where to get their gear. Lessons usually start about 30 minutes after arrival. Each lesson group meets its instructor at the pre-determined location.
We usually take a lunch or warm-up break after the lesson and then ski with friends. On some trips, we indulge in delicious food and drink at an Apres-ski event and get to know other members.
We gather at the bus about 15 minutes before departure time, do a headcount and, go on our merry way back home. Chillin’ like villains, the wicked may rest from an adrenaline-filled day and catch some zzz.
What should I wear?
Temperatures and conditions vary all the time. Being a little cold before your start skiing is okay, being cold while you are skiing is not - dress in layers so you can adjust your clothing to your activity level. You will warm up quickly while moving, so wear thin layers that you can add or remove as you see fit. Ideally, these should be synthetic or wool as these fabrics wick away moisture. The idea is to not get damp so you won’t get cold when you stop moving. Other recommendations are:
Will the trip run?
We make the decision on whether to run a trip on the Thursday before the trip, based on:
At the event NTSC would need to cancel a trip, we will issue a full refund on your account.
