Western/International Trip Details, 2017 Ski Season:

MEMBER AND VISITOR - SCWDC OFFERS FANTASTIC, COMPLETE SKI TRIPS AT REALLY GOOD PRICES -  DISCOUNT AIRLINE, LODGING, LIFT TICKETS - BUT YOU MUST SIGN UP EARLY AS OUR SPACES SELL OUT QUICKLY! 

The purpose of this table is to help everyone evaluate choices…matching individual interests and ski ability to the features at each resort.  Trip participant sizes may be adjusted upward and downward when there is more or less demand, and to avoid financial penalties that would apply if spaces are not sold.  Do not wait too long to decide; Call the leader for more information if you have interest but aren’t sure if a particular trip is suitable for you. 

SCWDC does not hold spaces on the chance that “someone” might sign up.  See other notes at the end of this table.  Our club provides complete trips, transportation via airline and bus, lodging, ski resort lodging, lift tickets, and social events to get everyone to get together, for that week, so everyone who wants to ski with another participant, has the chance to do that.

Air Routing is subject to change to achieve cheaper price or possibly using a carrier without baggage fees.  Therefore, the departure and return airport are subject to change, along with times of departure and return.  If you want to use frequent flyer miles, your own carrier and schedule, you will be responsible for the transportation to the ski destination if you can’t connect with the SCWDC transportation arrangement.  You need the trip leader’s written “OK”to  book your own flight.

Family Friendly” means the leader is ready to help families with the right combination of lodging.  The earlier you contact the leader for assistance, the more choices you will have.  

Reservation Policy:  Spaces are not held until you sign up for the trip and make a deposit or pay via credit card full price, and the leader informs you that you are on the trip.  When it comes down to 1 or 2 spots left, those who pay immediately by credit card may get the remaining spaces before someone’s check arrives at the leader’s mailbox. 

Snowfall totals are historical and cannot be guaranteed for any year.
