THE SKI & SPORTS CLUB OF WASHINGTON, DC






    

GREAT SPORTS FOR ALL SEASONS

2024/25 SKI TRIPS - STATUS BOARD  

For the 2024 ski season, we planned 15 ski trips to premiere resort destinations in North America and Europe.

For 2025 there continues to be a huge pent-up demand for ski holidays. Groups are filling up lodging, airlines and resorts fast. Let us make it easy for you and do all the planning for a stress-free trip with all the comradery and fun you could ask for. 

Our trips are complete packages, including air, lodging, transfers to/from the airport and resort, and an experienced leader who solves problems during the course of the trip. Most trips are priced without lift tickets, unless the lift tickets are bundled per resort requirement.  This is to accommodate those of you who have "MEGA" passes, where ski resorts are linked to several other resorts, and buying the pass for one means you can ski at another linked site without an additional payment.  These are termed, "Epic" or "IKON" season passes.  Also, it makes it simple to accommodate our non-skiers, who pay the trip price without a lift ticket included.

More advantages:  we get the best group rates for lessons, equipment rentals, and trip insurance.  All our trips can be paid for online using a credit card or offline by check.  An Advance Deposit will secure the registration until 120 days before trip departure, when the remaining balance is due.   Please mail payment checks (made out to SCWDC) to the Club office at 5309 Langston Boulevard, Arlington, VA 22207, NOT to the Trip Leader.  Please note the trip name and date on your check.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

Ski trips are open to active SCWDC members, and also to members of other ski clubs affiliated with the Blue Ridge Ski Council (BRSC).   All others must join the Club before registering for a ski trip.  Current members must ensure that their term of membership extends to the completion date of the ski trip. 

You can join the Club online by clicking HERE, or on the "JOIN NOW" tab on the toolbar at the top of the website's Home page. 

TRAVEL INSURANCE

We offer Group Trip Insurance - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! If you want to buy the trip insurance termed, "Cancel For Any Reason", you must buy this insurance within 14 days of a credit card transaction or dating a personal check for payment.  To purchase Cancel for Any Reason (CFAR) Insurance, contact Myra Altschuler (Travel Protectors) directly. While we have favorable relationship with a local travel insurance, Travel Protectors, trip registrants can research and buy insurance from any US travel insurance company.  Prices and coverage vary greatly. It pays to spend time on your own research.

Food for thought: Until the moment you require it, travel insurance might seem like a frivolous expense to individuals who perceive it as a waste of money.

ARE YOU A SINGLE TRAVELER?

All rooms are double occupancy. We will assign you a roommate unless you specify a preferred roommate, somebody you know and is also signed up for the trip. If you don't want to share a room with someone who is not a family member or partner, check out the destinations with low, reasonably priced, single supplement upgrades.

Multi-Resort Mega Passes - what are the ins and outs of these various passes? To help navigate these various pass options, check out this useful and insightful article: https://www.dcski.com/articles/1679 

Please note that many resorts are moving away from group rate lift tickets and therefore EPIC and IKON passes are strongly recommended if you are considering any of our trips to a Vail or Alterra owned properties or affiliate. Our three primary Tour Operators are facilitating direct mega pass purchases on their website, and they will even offer a rebate of some type if you purchase a pass directly from them for one of SCWDC trips that they are hosting (see status board). For more information, click the link for Tour Operator (Encompasse,Ski.com, Group Travel Simplicity (GTS)) for the trip(s) you are interested in.  Epic and Ikon Passes typically go off-sale in early December.
