Suburban Ski Club skis every week. That means that every week between the beginning of January and the middle of March, you will find a ski trip on our calendar.
We now have preliminary information on our major trips for 2019. Watch this page for more details and additional trips.
Park City, January 26-February 2, 2019
Our western trip will be to Park City, Utah, January 26 to February 2, 2019. We will stay at Zermatt Resort and Spa. This elegant, 4-star resort features Swiss-style architecture and décor. It caters to ski groups and here are some of the amenities offered:
- A dedicated group liaison, Max. She will be around for our week taking us on mountain tours and making sure our stay at Zermatt is a wonderful one for all of us.
- A complimentary shuttle for our group to take us to the three nearby ski areas with two runs in the morning and two runs in the afternoon
- An onsite bar, bakery and many affordable restaurants.
- Indoor and outdoor pools, sauna. steam room, fitness center and more
- Lots of meeting spaces for us to gather as a group
- Both condo and hotel-style lodging available to us
What about the skiing? From the Zermatt we can get to the gondola for Deer Valley in only 11 minutes and it is just 20 minutes to Park City/The Canyons and 20 minutes to the Sundance Ski Resort. And, depending on interest, there is a possibility of adding other ski areas to the lift package. And there is something new for this trip. Our trip package will allow you to customize your lift tickets into a bundle you prefer and will offer very nice discounts for our seniors.
We chose the week of January 26th because this is the week of the Sundance Film Festival and the nearby ski areas have a record low number of skiers at that time. So, our skiing experience should be phenomenal with no lift lines. Locals tells us that this is a fantastic time for skiers to visit. And, if any of our members want to experience Sundance, Zermatt offers a complimentary shuttle to Park City.
Sunday River/Sugarloaf, February 24-March 2, 2019
Our eastern trips have become legendary for their great value and outstanding experiences. This year we are returning to Sunday River, Maine. As with past eastern trips, this will be an all-inclusive trip at a bargain price. The package includes 6 nights lodging; lift tickets for 5 days; a free group ski lesson; 6 dinners and 5 hot breakfast buffets; a welcoming wine & cheese reception; luxury motor coach transportation and more, all for the low price of $1049.
Our lodging is again at the Jordan Hotel at Sunday River where we will have ski-in & ski-out access to the slopes. Those who have been there can attest that Sunday River is a very special place offering some great skiing at the second largest ski area in the East.
Only one eastern resort is bigger than Sunday River, and that is Sugarloaf. We will ski two days at this fabulous resort as well. Those who went in 2016 can attest that even the hardiest of us could not ski all the trails offered by these two expansive resorts. The options at both areas range from Green and Blue groomed cruisers to some challenging Double Black Diamonds. There is something for everyone.
