This is the sign up and organization page for an old trip. It already happened on 15-1-2011. Please do not sign up for it.

Please Note: Signing up here does not guarantee you a spot on this trip. Availability will be determined by the number of instructors available.

Beginner (Have never skied - or almost never)

Beginner (Know how to do snowplow AND parallel turns on downhill skis, but never telemarked)

Intermediate (Know how to do a telemark turn, and can link them on low angle runs)

===Advanced (You're comfortable on steeper ('black') runs, and want to work on condition specific techniques (moguls, powder, etc))


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.
Passengers, don't just sign up. Contact your driver and ask to be a passenger, discuss departure time and place.
S/he may have made offers to other people and you may just be signing up for a ride that doesn't exist.
Once you have a ride, take your name of the "Carless People" list.
Be sure to contact your driver should you cease to be a passenger, so that somebody else can ride, and the driver doesn't end up driving with empty seats.
You might want to arrange to pay your driver in advance, just to cement the relationship.
Drivers going to Seymour typically charge their passengers $5 (round trip), but that depends on the driver.
