2014 Ski Trips
Telluride, Colorado Jan 18 – Jan 25, 2014
Members are already looking forward to this OVSC ski trip! We were there in 2009 and the
skiing was excellent. Sixty percent of the runs are green (easiest) and blue (intermediate). Telluride has one mountain dedicated to blue and green runs. Our Bear Creek Lodge 4-bedroom condos are on the mountain. They are ski in with a short walk to the run to ski out. The flight from Columbus has a change of planes in Denver then to Montrose, CO. We will then be picked up at the Montrose airport for an hour and 15 minute bus ride to Telluride.
The trip cost is $1260 less a $25 discount if paid by Nov 1. Airfare is about $550. The cost includes 5 days of lift tickets, 7 nights in a condo. There is a Welcome Reception on Sunday night, a mid week BBQ lunch on the mountain, a Nastar Race, Mid week wine tasting Après Ski Party, Farewell Dinner and dance. Plus a club dinner and Friday pizza packing party!
For questions contact trip leader, Bob Eiber .
Holiday Valley Ski Trip: February 10 – 13, 2014
Once again we will be going to Holiday Valley for our local ski trip. We will drive to Holiday Valley on Monday, February 10 and depart on Thursday, February 13. A block of 10 rooms are being held for us at The Inn at Holiday Valley . As everyone knows who have gone on these trips before, this is a wonderful accommodation as the Inn is right on the slopes and 20 feet out the back door from one of the lifts.
Those who wish to go on this trip are to telephone Holiday Valley and reserve their room with your credit card. Contact reservations at The Inn at Holiday Valley at (800) 323-0020. Tell Reservations that you are from Skiers Ltd. in Columbus, Ohio. The three nights lodging will be Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights, February 10, 11, and 12 with skiing on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Ten Business Standard rooms are being held for our group.
The rooms have two double beds and so two people will share each room. The room cost includes overnight accommodation for two, all- day lift tickets for two adults, and continental breakfasts. The amenities of the hotel are ski-in, ski -out, swimming pool, sauna and
hot tub. The lift tickets are good from 4:00 PM on the arrival day through 4:30 PM on the departure day.
Once you have reserved your room and chosen your roommate, contact Larry Friedman to let him know you are going on this trip.
