Bring your sunscreen and a friend and sign up. The weather is supposed to be warm that day.

This is going to be a real relaxed event, as the snow conditions are probably not going to be great, but who cares? ***It is Slush cup, costumes are ENCOURAGED ** Even if it’s just a funny hat or a boa or Jersey

When you sign up don’t forget to say if you can drive or how many you can take.***If you plan on driniking lots PLEASE indicate that you CANNOT drive***

When we get to the hill each car can decide where you want to get ready and we will meet just outside the lodge at the top of the hill by the Angel chair at 10:15 am and break up into similar ability levels.

Since the snow doesn’t soften up until around 10 or 11 , we are not leaving super early in the morning,and will prob take a late lunch at about 1 PM in the Top lodge.( or pub deck TBA)
