Our annual Back To The Slopes Party is now re-imagined as the "Back To The Slopes Tailgate Party", due the closing of the Tysons Biergarten. Our friends at Alpine Ski Shop in Sterling have generously offered us the use of their private lot situated behind their shop.
Enjoy a beautiful summer afternoon and early evening outdoors, socializing with your club friends, talking and dreaming about the upcoming ski season. Meet our 2022 ski trip leaders. We will have food and beverages, music, and of course, fun. Invite your family and friends to join in the fun.
Each attendee will receive a raffle ticket at check-in. Hang out for the raffle drawing for door prizes.
We will be inviting a few snow industry friends to exhibit their services and products. Alpine Ski Shop will be opened for their ongoing last season equipment and soft good inventory reduction sale.
Bring a lawn/beach/camp/folding chair or beach blanket/towel to sit on. A grassy lawn runs the parameter of the lot, with a few shade trees where you can hang out at a safe social distance to socialize. There are no picnic tables or chairs available at the event. We are welcome to use the bathroom facilities at the Alpine Ski Shop. Don't forget your face mask.
We'll will be providing food to nosh on, and refreshing beverages. Beverages include bottled water, beer, wine coolers, hard seltzer/cider. Attendees may wish to bring their own favorite summertime libations, just in case our selection is not to their taste or liking.
