Jackson Hole Pre-Trip Meeting



Just a reminder that the Jackson Hole pre-trip meeting is scheduled for next Thursday, March 8th at 7:30PM.  Attendance is REQUIRED for all trip goers.  Also final payments are due on this day (we will have a credit card machine there but don't expect to pay there-- if too many people try to pay, we won't have time to process all payments).  


It will be held in the Memorial Union, TITU (this means they don't announce the room until this day -- just ask the front desk when you get there.  It should be in Tripp Commons on the second floor).


Spots are still open for Jackson Hole!  Come by the Hoofer OPO in the Memorial Union M-F, 9-5 to sign up!

Jackson is getting TONS of snow, so if you are missing out this winter, get one great trip in at least!

Blackjack Resort

Join the UW-Madison Hoofers Ski and Snowboard Club as we venture to Blackjack Ski Resort in Upper Michigan! This resort is one of the best in the Upper Michigan area!
They have over a 24 inch base and have received over 100 inches of snow already this year. All runs are currently open there and there will be even more snow when we get there!

We will be staying at the Bunkhouse Condos which are right on the slopes. It will be easy ski in/ski out access to the hill. There is a hot tub and sauna at the condos as well.

We will arrive Friday evening, ski/board all Saturday, ski/board Sunday, then head home Sunday evening.

The price for the trip is $135, which includes bus transportation, 2 nights lodging at the Bunkhouse condos, and a 2 day lift ticket for Saturday & Sunday.

You will want to sign up as soon as possible because spots are very limited! Sign up at the OPO (Outdoor Programs Office) in Memorial Union!
It will be an event you won't want to miss!!
