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.

  1. Roland Burton, on AT skis. I like cheap lifts.


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.
