Wanted to let you know that. We will need to purchase lift tickets ONLINE IN ADVANCE. Welch does not know if they will be offering the tickets online for purchase two weeks OR three days in advance. Example: we want to ski Sat Jan 9. Tickets will either be available to purchase online Sat Dec 26 OR Wed Jan 6. When Welch decides what they want to do, they will let me know. We will be paying window rate. No advanced or group discount. SUCKS BUT OH WELL. Covid information is available on their website. Indoors such as chalet space will be VERY LIMITED. Welch is recommending people use their cars as their chalet/warning space. EVERYONE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR PURCHASING THEIR OWN LIFT TICKET(S).

  This is a drive-up trip. Leave at your own convenience on Friday.   ***Important*** About ski trips this year. Due to Covid-19 and the need for social distancing, buses will not be used this year for club overnight and weekend trips. This will allow you to travel at a time more convenient for you, or you may caravan and car pool with others if you are comfortable with that. The club has also chosen not to do our own week trips, but will advertise trips from CMSC and other clubs for those that are comfortable with that. Be advised that other clubs will likely require you to become a member or pay a fee. Since our club is a member of CMSC, those trips do not require an additional membership fee. If you plan to ski on your own, many ski resorts will be requiring reservations this year and/or will only be selling lift tickets on line. Check online before you go.

You are on your own for Lift Tickets. Welch Village is not offering group rates this year.

Rentals and lesson information available upon request or visit: http://www.welchvillage.com/. Rentals are not available online yet, as Welch is still figuring out how they are going to offer them.
