Many VOCers aquired free, prime quality orange fleece and turned this into elegant garments.

So, on this December weekend we will ski and we will be insanely beautiful since we will wear our lovely golden fleece clothes.

Actually wearing original golden fleece is strongly recommended for this event. If you don't have golden fleece, wearing orange is acceptable, however if you don't have any orange clothes the only alternative is wearing nothing.

This trip will be beginner friendly, which means that we will wait for you if you are new to skiing and skinning. You might still suffer and face plant and swear a lot but you will be happy and look dignified because of the golden fleece.

Check out this message board thread for details on the free golden fleece.
Rumor has it that there is still some around.

Yes, this is still several months in the future. But it is time to get stoked and to sew your golden fleece ski dress.

We might go to Brew hut or Phelix but this will be decided later.


If you have questions or if you want to share your design idea, here is the message board thread for this trip.


Disclaimer: No one will enforce these rules, so in principle you can wear whatever you like. However if you join this trip you will see others wearing golden fleece, dazzling orange, animal costumes, tights, other weird clothes or simply nothing at all.
