Event Description:  This event is a day trip to Snowstar Winter Sports Park, where scouts will have the opportunity to Ski or Snowboard on some of the park's hills and trails.

We will meet at 7:30 AM Saturday morning and leave by 8:00 AM to arrive at the opening time of 10:00 AM. The drive is just under 2 hours long. We will ski/board all day, so please bring money for both lunch and dinner (about $20 is recommended). The park closes at 9:00 PM, but if the scouts are tired, we may leave earlier. Parents will be notified on the way home of our ETA.

If we can get 15 people to sign up, a lift ticket and rental will cost $45 per scout compared to the regular $60. Also, if a scout owns their own gear (skis or board), a lift ticket would be $30 compared to the regular $35 dollars. Helmet rentals are an additional $5. We must sign up and prepay at least 2 days in advance to take advantage of this option, so if you plan on attending, please sign up early!

If we have reached 15 people, signup will close on Thursday the 18th so we can sign up at least a week in advance and confirm our spot. If we have not reached 15 people, signup will extend until Tuesday the 23rd.

As always, we will most likely need drivers, so please consider attending with your scout.

IMPORTANT: Please print off and bring with you a SIGNED rental waiver and a Skiing/Snowboarding/Tubing waiver, which can be found at

This event should be a lot of fun! Siblings are welcome too, as long as a parent is attending!
