Ski Trip 2016

We are going to Owl’s Head ski hill on February 27th. You and your +1 are invited to join us for a day skiing / snowboarding / nordic skiing / snowshoeing.

We’ll leave at Roddick Gates at 8am and return home leaving the hill at 5pm. It is the day of Nuit Blanche, but we will be back in time for you guys to power nap and go out on the town!

Please fill the following form by Friday February 19th http://goo.gl/forms/XgfBBTJK5e. Also note that +1s have to fill out a separate form (one form per person).

The sum of your activity and rental (listed above) has to be paid in full to your site rep by Friday February 19th. See the cost of the activities below.

There will be no reimbursement passed the deadline.

HGSS will cover the price of the bus. The cost of your activity of choice goes as follow:

  • Activity (ticket)
    • Downhill Skiing / Snowboarding: $28
    • Nordic Ski and snowshoeing $5
  • Equipment rental at Owl’s Head
    • Downhill Skis / Snowboard rental: $19
    • Helmet rental: $5
  • Lessons: Downhill skiing and snowboarding lessons: $10 for one hour in groups of 4-8 people or $13 for two hours

For nordic skis and snowshoes, you will be able to rent them directly from the McGill gym on Friday (9:15am-10pm) at the cost of $12 if you return them right after the trip on Saturday (before 8:30pm). You have to arrange this with the gym directly, but we will be calling the Athletics facilities to reserve some for you if possible.

Last but not least, you will need to bring appropriate warm clothing (jacket, snow pants, mittens/gloves, hat, helmet, scarf), lunch or money to buy one at the cafeteria (hot lunch is available until 2:30pm), an ID card and your student card. There is also a bar on site, where you will be able to buy some liquid courage to brave the cold.

We hope you are as excited as us for this day out on the mountain! Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
