We are excited to bring back our Scout Ski Trip!  Based on the survey results, we will be going to Liberty Ski Resort on Saturday, January 7th.  The resort is open 8AM - 10PM.  Plan on a day that goes from 7am - 6pm with travel to and from Liberty but you can modify it based on your family's needs.  Parents who don't want to ski, there are spots with wifi to relax while your child is skiing.  There are also half-day lessons for ~$130 both in the morning and afternoon.  

We will coordinate carpooling, food, and other details later.  For now, if you plan to attend, please use the following link and promotion code to purchase your lift tickets ASAP.  The price may go up again this Sunday, November 20th by a few dollars and the final deadline to purchase your lift ticket with this promotional link is November 30th.

Once you purchase your ticket, you can add equipment and lessons which I recommend doing ASAP too as lessons fill up quickly.

Scouting for Food Success!
