    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.

    MONDAY NIGHT VOLLEYBALL

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

    Monday, January 15, 2018 (Martin Luther King Day)
    Monday, February 19, 2018 (President's Day)

    Monday, April 16, 2018 (D.C. Holiday, Emancipation Day)
    Monday, May 28, 2018 (Memorial Day observed)
    Monday, Sept. 3 (Labor Day observed)
    Monday, November 12, 2018 (Veteran's 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.”

    TUESDAY NIGHT SOFTBALL

    Leader is Bill WIlkinson reliablebillw@yahoo.com

    Weather permitting, we play  at Annandale Community Park in Annandale, VA starting at 6:00 PM. Cost is only $2.00, no registration required. All players are welcome, male and female, all ability levels. Bring a glove if you have one. Afterwards, join the group at a local restaurant for pizza.

    Our season begins April 10 and continues each Tuesday during the spring and summer seasons. 

    Location:

    For the newbies, we welcome all players, male and female, of all ability levels – these games are strictly for fun and we offer equal-opportunity chances to excel (we don’t count strikes, and Bill’s team always wins)!  If you have your own glove or equipment, great; if not, we share nicely.

    After the game, neither rain, sleet or snow will stop us from having pizza and beer to discuss the finer points of the game. Pass the word to softball players and those who wish to be softball players.  Always check the Calendar for possible last-minute changes.

    Cost: $16 SCWDC Members; $21 Guests; check-in at 9:45 AM

    Every other Saturday morning, 10 AM - 12 PM, weather permitting.  Casual sailing, no experience needed.  We sail with experienced skippers on 19' Flying Scot sailboats, very stable and easy to sail.  After sailing, hungry sailors gather at Primo Family Restaurant to swap stories  and share good times (costs not included).

    Dress is casual, and should be appropriate for the weather.  You may get splashed, so bring a change of clothes, along with a hat, sunglasses, sunblock lotion, and water. If the weather is questionable, call the marina (703-768-0018) around 9:00 AM.  The wind can be very different on the river than in the city, so never assume there is not enough wind to sail.  Sometimes we can't make a decision until we get to the marina.  If we can't sail, we will head over to Primo's a bit early. 

    Reservations are strongly encouraged and the ONLY way to ensure your space. We reserve boats and confirm skippers based on the number of people who have signed up 3 days in advance.  If you can sail at the last minute, contact the trip leader or come to the marina; we’ll try to accommodate you if we have space.  If you’ve made reservations and can’t make it, please contact the trip leader as soon as possible.  Check-in time is at 9:45 AM, 15 minutes prior to sailing time.  Meet at the picnic tables by the marina's office trailer.

    Belle Haven Marina is located on the George Washington Parkway about one mile South of Old Town Alexandria and the Woodrow Wilson Bridge.  It is NOT the marina by Reagan National Airport.

    Overview: No experience is necessary! Captain Larry will gladly share his extensive knowledge. You can take the helm and help trim the sails, or just sunbathe on the bow if that’s your preference. Enjoy taking pictures or peering through the binoculars to see the beautiful osprey diving with their sharp talons to grab a fish to take back to the nest to quiet the peeping chicks. And as you sail out of the Patapsco River onto the Chesapeake Bay, you can see the Francis Scott Key Bridge and the buoy marking the location of where Key penned the Star Spangled Banner. After a great day of sailing, the fun continues with dinner at a local restaurant (separate cost).

    Cost: $13 SCWDC Members; $18 Guests; check-in at 4:15 

    Every Tuesday evening, 6-8 PM (times adjust with the season), weather permitting.  Casual sailing, no experience needed.  We sail with experienced skippers on 19' Flying Scot sailboats, very stable and easy to sail.  After sailing, hungry sailors gather at Primo Family Restaurant to swap stories  and share good times (costs not included).

    Dress is casual, and should be appropriate for the weather.  You may get splashed, so bring a change of clothes, along with a hat, sunglasses, sunblock lotion, and water. If the weather is questionable, call the marina (703-768-0018) around 5 PM.  The wind can be very different on the river than in the city, so never assume there is not enough wind to sail.  Sometimes we can't make a decision until we get to the marina.  If we can't sail, we will head over to Primo's a bit early. 

    Reservations are strongly encouraged and the ONLY way to ensure your space. We reserve boats and confirm skippers based on the number of people who have signed up 3 days in advance.  If you can sail at the last minute, contact the trip leader or come to the marina; we’ll try to accommodate you if we have space.  If you’ve made reservations and can’t make it, please contact the trip leader as soon as possible.  Check-in time is at 5:3O PM, 15 minutes prior to sailing time.  Meet at the picnic tables by the marina's office trailer.

    Belle Haven Marina is located on the George Washington Parkway about one mile South of Old Town Alexandria and the Woodrow Wilson Bridge.  It is NOT the marina by Reagan National Airport.

    Trip Price: $1,935
    Trip Leader: Erica Rozek

    Jackson Hole is a ski resort on steroids. Nicknamed “The Big One”, it has big vertical and terrain, and has a gnarly reputation for steep challenging runs that attract many local and international hard-core skiers and snowboarders.

    You ask, "What is Jackson all about?" It's about terrain, challenge and scenery. It's about the wide variety of skiing terrain and extreme challenges for the intermediate and advanced skier. It's about the 460" average annual snowfall, 2500 skiable acres, 116 trails, 2 bowls, 10 surface lifts and a gondola, plus a vertical of 4,139 feet. 10% beginner terrain, 40% intermediate, 50% advanced/expert.  Always known as an expert mountain, it’s now more accessible to intermediate skiers with a new high-speed quad and increased snow making improvements to "Apres Vous" Mountain.

    As the tram heads up the hill jammed full of early morning powder seekers, you notice one thing – the consistent fall line, the steeps and the vertical. Jackson Hole has some the most challenging (read FUN) terrain in North America. There is also some genuinely frightening stuff for the uninitiated. In Jackson Hole even the cat tracks are all marked intermediate, not because they’re steep, but because of where you’ll potentially end up if you come off one. When a sign at Jackson Hole says ‘cliff’ it really means it!

    Where is Jackson Hole?  Jackson Hole ski resort is located a few miles outside of the cowboy town of Jackson, Wyoming, site of several Clint Eastwood movies.   There is an airport at Jackson, with domestic flights from various major US cities. 

    Lodging:

    Located near Jackson's historic town square, amongst the best restaurants, galleries, boutiques and nightlife, The Parkway Inn & Spa in Jackson, Wyoming offers beautiful guest rooms that are furnished with antiques and original artwork.  Jackson's finest fitness & weight room, Jacuzzis, saunas and pool.  Guests enjoy a delicious complimentary continental breakfast in a cozy breakfast room with a fireplace and original paintings of the region.

    Spend the day in historic downtown Jackson or take a short trip to Teton Village, Grand Teton National Park or Yellowstone National Park. Guests will enjoy easy access to skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, local entertainment and Jackson's vibrant nightlife, shopping, and dining.

    Trip Includes: 

    • Delta Airlines, Reagan National via Minneapolis to Jackson Hole
    • Ground transportation to and from airport to lodging
    • 7- nights at the Parkway Inn
    • 5 day lift ticket at Jackson Hole
    • Daily Continental Breakfast

    Winter Park Resort is a Colorado favorite located about 67 miles northwest of Denver. Originally built by the city of Denver as a winter park for its residents, Winter Park Resort has continually operated since 1939.

    The ski area is known for being a very family friendly resort and has terrain for all ability types. Winter Park spans across two distinct mountains and is home to a great mix of beginner, intermediate  and advanced trails. Mary Jane Mountain is home to amazing tree skiing, world-class moguls, and wide open alpine bowls.

    The resort contains modern amenities with an extensive well developed trail system.  The village base contains multiple lodging, dining and shopping options.

    Ski and Snowboard Terrain

    The resort consists of three interconnected mountain peaks (and seven "territories") — Winter ParkMary Jane, and Vasquez Ridge — which share a common lift ticket. Mary Jane, opened in 1975, has a separate base area and is known for its moguls, tree skiing, hidden huts and generally more difficult terrain. Skiing magazine ranks Mary Jane the top mogul skiing area in North America, including the above-tree line terrain of Parsenn Bowl. Vasquez Ridge, opened in 1986, offers intermediate terrain and mogul runs. With a summit elevation of 12,060' and a base elevation of 9,000', Winter Park offers 3,060' of vertical, 3,081 acres of skiable terrain, and 162 trails.  The terrain mix is 24% Green (39), 39% Blue (63), and 37% Black/Double Black (60).  Annual snowfall is over 327".

    With five awe-inspiring peaks towering over an authentic mountain town, Breckenridge is unquestionably a must-visit locale. It is home to the largest historic district in Colorado, the highest lift in North America and miles and miles of endless possibilities (about 4.9 of them to be exact). Main Street is covered with exquisite eateries, spectacular shops and more winter watering holes than even the locals know what to do with. Not to mention, a vibrant nightlife scene keeps the party going well after après ski. Despite being situated among majestic mountains at 9,600 feet, you’ll find an incredibly charming and down to earth culture making Breck the perfect place for a unique and unforgettable getaway.

    Vail Resorts owned, Breckenridge Ski Resort boasts one of the highest summit elevations in the U.S. at 12,998 feet. The resort's several distinct peaks provide varied terrain to suite all skier types and ability levels, and the mountain also offers four award-winning terrain parks, along with a 22' superpipe. 

    A journey into the town of Breck serves up access to 30 bars, pubs and restaurants on Main Street alone, including Breckenridge brewery. While the town’s Victorian architecture and designation as Colorado’s largest historic district make a trip to Breck an aesthetically appealing and historically enriching experience, the array of activities—from powder and groomers to shopping, dining and nightlife—keeps things exciting. Not to mention that it's a great jumping off point for hiking, with close access to many of Colorado's 14ers. Breckenridge has its own pulse, and visitors feel it as soon as they arrive.

    Lodging


    The Village at Breckenridge is uniquely located, right at the base of Peak 9, steps from the Quicksilver lift and one block from Main Street and the River Walk Center.  Explore all Breckenridge has to offer - world class skiing and snowboarding, unique restaurants, relaxing spas, charming boutiques, hiking and biking trails for all ages and abilities and more.

    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%).

    Lodging


    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.

    Consistently an SCWDC favorite, Vail is a massive, 5,289-acre ski mountain, featuring 3,450 vertical feet, and fueled by an average annual snowfall of 366 inches. Vail also offers the most advanced lift system (not to mention the largest number of high-speed detachable lifts --31) in Colorado.

    One reason for Vail's enormous success is its vast variety of terrain suited for all skier ability levels --from the 193 long, groomed trails to the boundless back bowls where intermediate and expert skiers frolic on a great powder day. Terrain is 18% beginner, 29% intermediate, and 53% advanced/expert.

    The Vail Village is a charming and diverse, alpine-style pedestrian village whose twin centers are seamlessly linked with swift, free buses. Nightlife abounds with music, fun, and 110 restaurants and bars for all tastes. The village also features dozens of shops, boutiques, and galleries.

    Nestled in a basin at the base of the foothills of the Selkirk Mountains overlooking Lake Pend Oreille, Schweitzer Mountain offers 2900 acres of lift accessible in-bounds terrain. Averaging an annual snowfall of 300 inches, Schweitzer’s 92 designated trails include two open bowls - Schweitzer Bowl and Outback Bowl. 10% of the terrain is beginner, 40% intermediate, 35% advanced and 15% is expert. Accommodating every level of skier and rider, Schweitzer also has an open gate policy for access to out-of-bounds terrain that spans over 200 additional miles of the Selkirk Mountains.    


    Schweitzer is quickly developing  somewhat of a cult following. It's small, peaceful, there are no crowds, it is delightfully unpretentious, and the resort has a nice local feel to it.  

    Ski Magazine has voted Schweitzer as “the best kept secret in North America”, but this may be a slight exaggeration. Schweitzer is uncrowded and a hidden gem relative to larger ski resorts such as Aspen or Vail, but it’s definitely not deserted and it doesn’t feel like you’re skiing on your own private mountain (unless you go cat skiing with off piste). Despite Schweitzer already being well and truly discovered, the locals think it’s a well kept secret, so we’ll let them keep thinking that!


    Lodging:

    We will be staying at the Selkirk LodgeWith ski-in/ski-out access, Selkirk Lodge allows you more time for downhill skiing, snowboarding, and cross-country skiing. You can visit the spa to be pampered with massages or body scrubs, and Mojo Coyote Cafe, one of 2 restaurants, serves American cuisine and is open for breakfast and lunch. An outdoor pool and a bar/lounge are other high
