    MONDAY NIGHT VOLLEYBALL

    Because the gym at Jelleff is not available on Federal holidays, there will be NO Ski Club volleyball on:

    Monday, May 29, 2017 (Memorial Day observed)
    Monday, July 3 (Independence Day observed)
    Monday, Sept. 4 (Labor Day observed)

    Good coed, pickup volleyball Monday evenings in upper Georgetown / Glover Park.  Advance reservations are not required; just show up. Teams are formed on the spot. Optional beer and pizza  (or other items on the menu) after volleyball at Froggy Bottom Pub, 2021 K Street, NW.

    We meet almost every Monday evening throughout the year with the exception of Memorial Day and Labor Day. In June, July, and August we play outdoor (sand court) volleyball at the Lincoln Memorial Courts.

    Location:

    We have three nets at Jelleff Community Center, 3265 “S” Street, NW, just a half a block off Wisconsin Avenue.  We play Mondays, starting from 6:45 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.  $5 for Ski Club members, $8 for non-members. No bills over $20 accepted. There is an ATM on Wisconsin Ave. half a block away.

    Parking:  Free parking in the lot at Jelleff.  Right when we start, a lot of soccer parents are picking up their young players, so the parking lot tends to be full until 7:15 p.m.  If you arrive earlier than that, just park on “S” Street away from the parking meters – it’s a two-hour zone.  This is a very safe neighborhood.

    With Ski Club volleyball, you will typically play more games per evening than in most leagues.  We have two levels of play:  intermediate and advanced. This is not “picnic volleyball.” We play by the rules.  Play on our advanced court is often fierce. They tend to play 5/1 volleyball with a three-person attack on the front line.(See playing advice below.)

    Leaders:  John Henrehan, johnhenrehan@yahoo.com, or Ira Silvergleit, irates@verizon.net.  Questions?  Hit us before Monday evening, because we’ll be playing volleyball!

    Ability Level / Having Fun?
    Can you bump?  Can you set?  If your answers are “yes”, try our intermediate court.  Rusty players are welcome. We''ll give you a few tips to get you going.

    Skill levels vary on the intermediate court, so, for safety reasons, we try to stress three house rules:  1)  Do not chase the ball onto another court.  i.e. stop running at the boundary line;  2)  When possible, try to take all three hits before returning the ball over the net;  3)  The setter gets the second touch.  No matter where the ball is on the court, the setter gets the second touch UNLESS the setter calls “help.”

    FRIDAY NIGHT BOWLING

    Casual, non-stressful, group bowling for those who wish to participate.  

    Each week we will send out an email to see who is interested in bowling that Friday, then we  will reserve the lanes. That’s right, you will not need to commit to bowl every Friday; only those Fridays you want to.

    Email Pete at scwdc@scwdc.org to get on the regular email list. 

    This event is run every Friday night.  You only pay the leader for the lane costs of $11 for three games.  You may rent your own bowling shoes if needed.

    We have regulars who come every week and some only occasionally.  Beginners are welcome.  Bowling skill not required.

    LAST SPOT NOW OPEN FOR A SINGLE FEMALE - GET REGISTRATION CODE FROM TRIP LEADER

    Snow Country Magazine rates Steamboat among the top five ski areas in the West. And Ski Magazine says it has "the best tree skiing in the U.S." and also named it "the Best Family Friendly Ski Area".  Famous for its “champagne powder”, this resort is a favorite for Olympic trainees.  The mountain offers 3,670 vertical feet, 2,965 skiable acres of terrain, 20 lifts, and 354" average annual snowfall.  All levels of skiers/boarders will have fun since the slopes are divided approximately with 20% beginner, 40% intermediate, and 40% advanced.

    Besides a week of skiing, you will want to enjoy the charming town and the hot, hot springs (which Skiing magazine labels as the best hot springs at any ski resort). Other possible adventures include horseback riding and sleigh rides, ice skating, and cat powder skiing. Whether you choose Ski Time Square or other well-known dining spots, your apres ski and dining experience will be as memorable as your on-the-mountain one.

    Crested Butte in Colorado is a real beaut of a ski resort and ski town! Whether you call it “Crusty Butt” or Crested Butte, this is a place of extremes. It’s well known for the extreme ski and snowboard terrain, the extreme friendliness, and the extremely laid back culture.


    Where is Crested Butte  located? Crested Butte ski resort is located in the Colorado Rockies Elk Mountain Range. The historic town is a few miles from the ski resort, 28 miles north of Gunnison, and 229 miles southwest of Denver.  Crested Butte is pretty close to Aspen, CO as the crow flies, but in the glitz and glamour stakes, it is far away. Crested Butte has no major aspirations to be like Aspen or other upscale ski towns. Crested Butte prides itself on being “real” and down to earth; the sort of place where a ski bum could get very comfortable.

    The charming town of Crested Butte is located 3 miles from the ski resort). The historic Victorian town has a population of only 1,700 people, and the colorful buildings look like they’re from a western movie set. The town is sometimes labelled as the last real Colorado ski town.

    The skiable area at Crested Butte Mountain Resort is 1,167 acres, with a vertical drop of 3,062 feet.  The terrain statistics are 23% beginner, 57% intermediate, and 20% advanced.  However this doesn’t paint the true picture of Crested Butte. In reality, the advanced terrain includes many double black diamond runs that are Crested Butte’s signature.


    Our group will love staying at Plaza Condominiums for its convenient location just 100 yards from the ski area's main lift, the Silver Queen. In one short walk, guests can hit the slopes or take in the action at the base area of Crested Butte Mountain Resort.  Guests also love the shops and base area restaurants (hello, happy hour!). The Plaza is also unique for its condominium setting with hotel style services. Spacious two- and three- bedroom suites include everything you need to be independent, while on-site check-in, a restaurant and bar, daily housekeeping services, covered parking and two hot tubs provide all the benefits of a hotel.

    Trip Includes: 

    • Round-trip on United, Dulles to Gunnison, CO via Denver
    • Ground transportation to and from the airport and resort
    • 6 nights at the Plaza Condominiums in 2-BR units
    • 100 yards to the Silver Queen gondola

    Trip Overview

    This is the perfect opportunity to use the Snowshow season pass you bought last spring. Join SCWDC for a weekend of skiing and snowboarding in wild, wonderful West Virginia.

    Directions from DC:  Take I-66 West to I-81 South. Travel to Exit 296, which is State Route 55 West. Travel on 55 West through Moorefield, WV to Petersburg, WV. At Petersburg you will pick up 28/55 and stay on south 28 for 32 miles… picking up 28/92 South toward Greenbank, WV. Just south of Greenbank turn right onto State Route 66 West. There will be signage for Snowshoe and Cass Scenic Railroad. Continue through the town of Cass making a sharp turn over the bridge and follow 66 West to the first Snowshoe Drive turn on the right unless road conditions are not clear. Continue on Rt. 66 to the second right turn for Snowshoe Drive. 

     GPS Coordinates: Using GPS / Navigation Systems: Because of the rural location, GPS units are not always the most reliable source for turn-by-turn directions. Some of the roads in the area are not properly mapped. Snowshoe suggests inputting longitude and latitude coordinates, rather than using a street address. Here are some of the coordinates for popular locations on the mountain:

    Mountaintop Check-In:   38.4018 North - 79.9936 West

              Village Center:      38.4119 North - 79.9963 West

    NOTE:  our Southwest group air reservation is now filled, but we were able to book a second group flight on United, at a $100 price increase.

    Spend a week with us at the legendary ski paradise that is Taos Ski Valley. Situated in the Sangre de Cristo mountains of New Mexico, the area is completely bounded by the pristine Carson National Forest. The European atmosphere and architecture of the resort is due to the ski area''s European pioneers, and an amalgamation of German, French, Austrian and Swiss residents and employees combined with the local Native American and Spanish cultures.

    Founded by Ski School Director Ernie Blake, Taos is one of the very few family owned and operated ski areas in the U.S. It offers a rare combination of high altitude (9000'' base), high snowfall (over 300" annually, mostly dry powder), and sunshine (300+ days a year). The resort rarely has any lift lines, and boasts the top rated Ski School in North America. The mountain is cozy, with 2,600 ft vertical, 1,300 skiable acres of terrain, 110 trails, and 13 lifts. Terrain is almost evenly split between beginner/intermediate (49%) and advanced/expert (51%).


    We''ll be staying at the Inn at Snakedance condos, located adjacent to the main lift in 2-bedroom units. According to Ski Magazine, "Taos remains one of the great purists'' resorts of North America, and features one of the best high-altitude free-skiing anywhere". We'll be there in time for the Ski/Board Better Week and have included a 6-day lift package with free lessons.

    To visit the Taos resort website click here.

    Number of Skiers: 34

    Trip Includes: 

    • Round-trip air on SOuthwest Airlines, DCA to Albuquerque, via Chicago (Midway).
    • Seven nights at the Inn at Snakedance, in 2-BR condos
    • 6-day lift ticket with daily Ski/Ride Lessons as part of the Ski/Board Better week
    • Lift discounts of $20 for seniors 65-79. 80+ ski free
    • Welcome Wine & Cheese party
    • Group dinner at General Manager's house on Monday or Tuesday
    • Available shuttle trips to the town of Taos - 2 nights

    TRIP IS NOW FILLED - WAIT LIST ONLY

    Our previous All Inclusive Club Med ski trips to Chamonix, France and Via Lattea, Italy demonstrated the value and appeal of European skiing.   This year our destination will be at Club Med Arcs Extreme, a modern, newly built ski resort  located in the Savoie region of France, in the Tarentaise valley. It benefits from being on the edge of the Vanoise National Park, an area of natural beauty which attracts many summer visitors as well as skiers. 


    Les Arcs is part of the famous Paradiski ski area which combines the ski areas of both Les Arcs & neighbouring La Plagne, joined together by the Vanoise Express cable car. Les Arcs itself is actually made up of a number of different villages, each at slightly different altitudes and each with their own character and ambience. It's renowned as a family friendly resort, with a good selection of beginner pistes and ski areas, as well as those for the more advanced skier or snowboarder. Its location on the edge of the Vanoise National Park offers amazing panoramas of the surrounding mountains and, on a clear day, you can even spot Mont Blanc. 

    Les Arcs & La Plagne were joined together in 2003 by the Vanoise Express cable car from Plan Peisey, a huge double decker ski lift that boasts a capacity of 200 people, making it the biggest, longest and fastest cable car in the world. With over 425 kms of piste (200km in Les Arcs alone), even an accomplished skier can be hard pushed to ski from one end of the Paradiski area to the other and back again in one day.

    For the more advanced or expert skiers there are in the region of 50 red pistes, 16 black pistes and a number of snowparks both in Les Arcs and La Plagne. Getting around the resorts is easy thanks to a great network of ski lifts which are mostly open in the day time, with a few also available at night to help people get from their accommodation to different restaurants and shopping areas. 

    As always, Club Med's All Inclusive package (all meals, drinks, lifts, lessons, entertainment & trip insurance) provides an incredible value compared to other ski trips.  

    What's Included:

    • Motor coach transport to/from the airport and the Club Med resort
    • Round-trip airfare via United Airlines from Dulles International Airport to Geneva, Switzerland (2 checked bags free)
    • Double occupancy slopeside accommodations at the resort.  Single occupancy rooms available at extra cost.
    • International gourmet cuisine, including all meals, plus lunch at Club Med's restaurant on the mountain, or in the Club Med dining room
    • Unlimited "open bar" drinks and refreshments, including beer, wine, spirits, soft drinks and bar snacks
    • 6-day lift ticket to all ski areas
    • Professional ski/snowboard lessons (full day) in English for all levels of ability, Monday thru Friday.  Instructors serve as mountain guides for experienced skiers.
    • Nightly entertainment
    • Basic Trip insurance included, extended coverage available at extra cost
    • *Basic equipment rentals (snowboard or skis & poles), available at extra cost

    Whistler Canada is the largest ski resort in North America and the biggest ski area in the world outside of Europe.

    TRIP LEADERS: sue miller 

    Mammoth Mountain provides over 3,500 acres of amazing High Sierra terrain - wide open bowls, steep chutes, tree-lined cruisers, terrain parks and half pipes, that draw skiers and riders of all ages and abilities. At 11,053 feet, Mammoth is the highest summit of any California resort. More than 150 trails for every temptation dot the landscape with names like Hangman’s Hollow, Climax, Broadway, Mambo, and Hansel and Gretel. Thirty lifts quickly move you between Main Lodge, Canyon Lodge, and Little Eagle.

    Thirty-two feet of snow blanket the mountain between November and June giving you tons of terrain to explore. You choose whether you want to float through the open bowls swelling with powder, get big air through one of the three terrain parks, fly through a steep chute, carve your way through the trees, or enjoy a gentle, gradual passage amidst the perfectly groomed trails.

    For skiers and non-skiers there are several winter activities for young and old. Take a scenic ride up the Panorama Gondola and enjoy a 360 degree vista of high altitude Sierra Nevada peaks with a commanding view of the San Joaquin River Valley below. Have lunch at the Eleven53 Cafe and learn about the amazing geologic, volcanic, and natural history of the region at the Eleven53 Interpretive Center. You'll quickly discover there's more to do above 11,000 feet than just ski.

    We will be staying at the Juniper Springs condominium, nestled along the pristine Valentine Reserve and framed by Mammoth's vast world-famous ski terrain. The area's premier ski-in, ski-out all-condominium hotel acts as the gateway to Mammoth's best skiing, exactly like the mountain home you've always dreamed of, quietly removed from town by just one traffic light and never too far from dining and nightlife.

    Park City Mountain is now owned by Vail and is connected to Canyons by a new gondola.  The combined areas make it the largest U.S. ski resort with over 7,300 skiable acres, 300+ trails, 38 lifts, seven terrain parks, 14 bowls, six natural half-pipes, a super half-pipe and a mini-half pipe.  There is a base area at both Park City and Canyons with restaurants, ski shops, rental shops, etc.  There is free bus service to both base areas of Park City Mountain as well as Deer Valley.


    Park City Mountain Resort offers something for everyone with extended glade terrain, upgraded on-mountain restaurants, expanded beginner terrain, and a ski-and-snowboard park. Enjoy the deep powder bowls, long groomed runs, gentle beginner slopes, steep chutes, and three world-class terrain parks.

    The Canyons, now Utah's largest area with 16 lifts (seven are high-speed), boasts 3,500 skiable acres with 106 trails and eight peaks. You'll relish groomed boulevards, glade steeps, and undulating meadows. The area offers Vail-scale terrain, plenty of off-slope diversions, and few crowds, but little of the Vail glitz.

    Leader:  Frank Peñaranda

    The “Heart of Europe” is a good description of the destination for our next Bike & Barge adventure. The region formerly known as “Bohemia” evokes exotic culture, customs and history; not just for its resplendent cities, but its villages and country-side. Our starting and ending points is the city of Prague, one of the few large cities whose buildings, monuments and culture were spared from the devastation that WWII brought to the rest of civilized Europe. We will have ample opportunity to visit this major capital of Eastern Europe, but also the villages and hamlets that dot the course of the two principal rivers in our journey: The Vltava (also known as the Moldova or Die Moldau in German) and the Elbe; all close and personal on bikes or on foot.

    This promises to be one of the most rewarding trips we have offered, and will fill-up very quickly, so if you are even remotely interested, please contact the trip leader immediately to reserve a spot
