Hi Everyone! It is time for our fourth go at Sunday River Ski Resort which will be our "Sort of Blue Collar" ski trip for the season. The resort spans 3.5 miles, 8 mtn peaks, with 132 trails (43 green, 48 blue, 25 diamond, 16 double diamond) and approx 2,400' of vertical.

The cost is 850.00/person for 2016. We will be staying once again at the SKI-IN/SKI-OUT Jordan Grand Hotel. The package will include your transportation, 5 nights staying in one bedroom hotel condos, 5.5 days skiing, and (ski lessons if desired each day). The package also includes a welcome aboard party hosted by the resort. We will finish off the last night with a potluck dinner where everyone contributes there left overs for a hooh haah evening of food and libations!!

All players need to be at the train station NLT 4:00 so we can stage the luggage and have it measured/weighed and checked in. The station is located on Rte 60 a quarter mile on the right from Rte 17 intersection (just before the James River Bridge). Parking at the station for the duration is free and at your own risk.

Mark will be carrying ONE boarding pass which will cover those participants who paid 850.00. (specifics for the train # are below).

Our AMTRAK train #66 departs at 5:20 PM from the Newport News station Saturday 27 February for a "railway all nighter" to Boston arriving at 8:10 AM Boston-South Station terminal. We will then take a 3 hour charter bus to the resort. We will be making a stop just before the resort at a grocery store so everyone can pick up food and beverages to put in their kitchen for the week. Our resort arrival time should be approx 1:00 to 2:00 PM. After check-in everyone can hit the slopes!!
