Skiing only

Suppose you don't tele; maybe you have a snowboard or AT gear. If you want to get in on the group rate for lift tickets, put your name here.
Don't plan to use Club Gear for this though, because all the Club Gear will be out being used for lessons.
Putting your name here means you will buy one ticket, but you don't expect to be bundled with an instructor.


Please indicate here if you have a car, where you are leaving from and how many people you can transport. Be sure to include a phone number, at which you can be reached by your passengers.
