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 gnarly hills and trails.

We will meet at 7:00 AM Saturday morning and leave by 7:15 AM to arrive at the opening time of 9:00 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) or pack a lunch if you would like. 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 cheaper. Scouts can also bring their own gear (skis or board). 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!

Lessons are an additional $20 - consider this if you are a beginner.

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 https://skisnowstar.com/waiver-form/.

For more information or if you have any questions, please visit skisnowstar.com or email Charlie or Ethan.

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