Hey, when is the SCWDC Ski Fest this year? What, no Ski Fest? Well, sorta yes, sorta no. Due to expense and other circumstances, the Ski Fest has had its run and is retired, at least for now. What we plan to have in place of the Ski Fest is a members’ party to celebrate the upcoming ski season, our second annual Back to the Slopes Party.

  • What: Back to the Slopes Party
  • Cost:  FREE EVENT but food and beverage are available at a deep discount  ("TWO FOR ONE" food/beverage tokens)  Members pay $10, non-members pay $15.  
  • Where: Tyson’s Biergarten, 8346 Leesburg Pike, Tysons, VA 22182
  • When: Sunday, September 15, 2019, 4 - 8 PM

Like at the Ski Fest, you can seek out your 2020 SCWDC trip leaders to discuss their trip, see ski trip displays, and visit with ski industry friends' displays/exhibits. Mingle with your ski trip buddies. Like the Ski Fest, there will be music and raffle prizes. Unlike the Ski Fest, the Back to the Slopes Party will be outside at the Tysons Biergarten, with picnic tables, pop-up tent canopies and discounted beverage/food tokens for purchase for members and guests. There is inside space but our party will be outside, where the action is.

Please register even if you are not going to purchase the discounted beverage/food tokens. We would like to get an accurate head count to help Tysons Biergarten set up for us.  Besides, if you register, you will get one raffle ticket at check-in.  If you register and purchase the discounted 2-for-1 beverage/food tokens, you will receive 2 raffle tickets. 

Door prizes? There are many as always, just like past Ski Fests.  

Food, beer, wine! Tysons Biergarten offers 140+ types of beer, 50+ types of Whiskey/Bourbon/Scotch, three indoor levels, a 10,000 sq. ft. outdoor patio (with heaters), music, outdoor games, and much more!  Register and purchase your discounted 2-for-1 food/beverage chips and enjoy!

Yum! Sample of available menu items. Each order includes 2 items of choice plus 2 sides, with and without bread. Menu includes vegetarian options.

We are arranging with our ski industry friends to exhibit their products and services like they would at a ski resort Ski Demo Day, to generate that ski season vibe. All the details have not been worked out yet but be prepared to be surprised at this fun members’ event.  Check the weekly SkiGram for ski industry friends that will be exhibiting as we get closer to Sunday, September 15. 

Current we have the following exhibitors, with more to be announced: Canadian Mountain Holidays, Club Med, Indy Pass, Massanutten, Wintergreen, Wisp, Liberty, Roundtop, Whitetail, Alpine Ski Shop, Pro-Fit Ski and Indoor Ski Training Center, Ski Hauss Sports, Sun & Ski Sports, and Zipline Ski. Tour operator Encompasse Tours will also be there to answer questions about our ski trips and destinations.

Do a snow dance, but please don't do the rain dance!

Of course, please invite friends and family to check out this party. They can register to just attend and receive a raffle ticket, or they can purchase discounted 2-for-1 food and beverage chips and receive 2 raffle tickets. Put Sunday, September 15 on your calendar.

It’s almost here. Think snow! Time to break out your winter gear and get ready for some winter sports. That’s right, it’s time to get BACK TO THE SLOPES

Greensboro Metro Station exit, only a few steps from the Biergarten!

Get our 2-for-1 chips (tip and tax ARE included).  If driving, look for the signs for the free parking next door, as parking is limited at the small Biergarten lot  in front.
