TBA Sometimes we do Seymour if we can get a group rate for tickets


TBA You will pay your driver for gas as usual. For some destinations a shuttle bus may be available (costs more than carpool). You will pay for your lift ticket plus your share (generally 1/4) of your instructor's ticket. You may have to rent skis, boots, poles.


You will need functional telemark skis, ski poles, and ski boots. Gear is available to rent from the club room, or from Mountain Equipment Co-op.

MEC prices:
Package (skis, boots, poles): 30$ first day, 20$ extra day or
individually skis: 20 $, boots: 15 $

  • call MEC well in advance to reserve gear
