This year it seems that a lot of people will not be going. The place to rent was about $2000.00. You can get discounted lift tickets supposedly at Costco LIFT TICKETS. I will be bringing some chili, gatorade, lasagna, water, drinks, some chips. Everyone please help out by bringing something to munch on. I usually do the trips before Christmas, this year I tried doing it after Christmas as of right now we might only have 10-14 people LOL. I will get there on Friday and board Friday and Saturday. Message me for my #. Check-in time is at 4pm Friday. If you know or have someone in mind that wants to go, feel free to invite them. The krew that is going is Drama free and lets keep it that way
