Vermont Ski Trip 

What a great trip this was!  The skiing was phenomenal, the food was great and plentiful, and the memories we all built will be everlasting. 

No injuries to report for our Scouts this year - thank God!  However, our adventurous ski club host Joe Decker did sustain a few bruises and cuts attempting to do a helicopter over the 30 foot cliffside.  He normally lands this jump just fine, but visibility was a bit poor...  Check out the picture - let's just call the cut a shaving mishap!

Please thank your Scouts for their contributions and positive attitudes. 5:00 AM starts at the lodge in order to be on the slopes by 8:30 AM - without any adult coaxing!  A special thanks to our adult leaders, our Troop's certified ski instructor, and our "Lodge Mom".  Must say that we all might have gotten a bit spoiled on this trip by Liz and Lisa Also, many thanks to Mrs. Whittle for shopping and pre-cooking all that bacon and chicken - delicious!

So, who is in for next year?

With the ski trip fast approaching, a few things to communicate:

  • Permission slips due back by Dec 22nd meeting.
  • Departure date Dec 26th, 1PM from Municipal Building.
  • Skiing at Okemo full day on day one, followed by Pico 1.5 days.
  • Meals provided are:  Breakfast Tue / Wed / Thur, Dinner Tue / Wed.
  • Scouts are responsible for the following meals:  Dinner Monday on drive up, Lunch Tue / Wed / Thu, Dinner Thu drive back to BT.
  • As we did last year, we'll make Subway (or the like) runs in the evenings for next day's lunches (for those interested).
  • Adult leaders will guide, i.e. this is a Scout led trip.  There is a duty roster and all Scouts are expected to chip in to make things happen.  Food / clean up / rounding up the gang to get to the mountain / cooking / etc.
  • Medications - need to be clearly spelled out on permission slips.  Bring only enough for the three day trip.  Don't leave your meds at home.  Make sure your meds have their original label on them.
  • For the meds, we need to follow a protocol similar to Summer Camp.  Check your meds with Mrs. Zalewski who will coordinate this.
  • Please bring appropriate amount of spending money for meals and any incidentals.
  • In addition to your personal items and clothing, bring a sleeping bag and basic toiletries.
  • Helmets are required for all Scout - not optional.
  • Please arrange for your ski and equipment rentals here in NJ, not at the mountain in VT
  • Any snacks / drinks you wish to share with others are also greatly appreciated.
  • Troop uniforms for drive up and down not required.  Any Class B that is appropriate for the lodge is encouraged.

Lastly, bring weather appropriate clothing for skiing.  Last year, the temp on day 1 as we got going was 0 degrees!
