Sitzmark, is once again inviting Traverski and other MSC members on a day trip to Spirit Mountain (www.spiritmt.com) in Duluth on Saturday, January 20, 2018, for approximately $60 (prices to be finalized in October)! Nonmembers may attend for $10 more or bring $30 for Traverski/MSC annual membership. This unbeatable price for a day of skiing includes the lift ticket, deluxe coach bus ride, a hearty breakfast (such as bread, meat, hard-boiled eggs, cheese, bananas, juice, and more). Rentals are available for about $20 (skis or boards), and lessons for about $12. In the past several years, we’ve had 60+ skiers (including many new people) and everyone wanted to go back again!
Extra lift ticket vouchers are being offered for about $35 for people driving up on their own, which Sally Hed Dahlquist will mail to you in advance, or you can meet us at the bus if you’re there the same day. These vouchers are good for any day this 2017/2018 season (redeem them at the ticket window or group office). You must be an MSC member to buy the voucher as it’s a special deal Sitzmark club got and they are not available for sale to the general public. Plan to wear your tie dyed Traverski bandana so we can find each other on the slopes!
We will be boarding the bus at 7am at the Honeywell parking lot (2600 Ridgway Parkway, Minneapolis, MN 55413; park on the south side of the complex). Get cozy as the bus will be full (50 people). We’ll leave at 7:30 am sharp and may make additional 1 or 2 stops (such as Forest Lake). Once rolling, we’ll serve breakfast. We plan to arrive at Spirit Mt around 10am.
Upon arrival, just gather your equipment and head to the Fireside Room (next to the Moosehead Lodge) to get your lift ticket, settle in, change clothes, and relax throughout the day (we reserved the room all day but cannot guarantee complete security). Pick up rentals at the group office.
For the return trip, the bus will board Spirit Mountain at 5 pm for a 5:30pm departure. We plan to be back to Honeywell around 8pm.
This day trip will sell out fast, so sign up ASAP. To guarantee your seat, you must pay online at www.sitzmarkmn.org/skiing.html. We can arrange carpooling from Rochester for the Traverski group and friends if enough people are interested.
