Ski Trip -- 2018

Saturday, January 27, 2018
Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Area

Without an official office space to come to and accept registration / participation forms and your $25 deposit to secure, we will likely use PayPal; check back here for instructions on how to do so either later this year or in early January 2018.  At the present time, simply set aside this date for an amazing time of skiing at night.  The approximate cost will be $100 (considerably higher than previous years due to cost increases at the lodge).  Please consider coming and feel free to invite friends to join you as well! There will be space for approximately 40 people total.  Don't wait until the last minute to let us know your intentions.  The last day to sign up will be Tuesday, January 23rd at 3pm.  If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Take care!

This is an annual trip that FOCUS sponsors for those wanting to enjoy the beauty and excitement of Mt. Hood in a slightly different way from the trips FOCUS volunteers have taken you on during the summer months.  This mountain is an icon relative to Portland, Oregon and so you won't want to miss out on this chance to take in the grandeur this place offers!

We will leave from the FOCUS Meeting Place (see link to the left) at Noon so please plan on being there no later than 11:45am.  Please buy or borrow warm clothing to keep you warm while taking your ski lesson (a 2-hour beginners class is included in the price for those not familiar with skiing or snowboarding).  We will return sometime before Midnight that same day.  The minimum age for this trip is 7 years old (additional fees will apply to this younger age group, however).

The total cost is estimated to be $100 which includes transportation to and from the mountain, ski lift, ski equipment rental, lesson, and light snacks.  The final price depends on the total number of participants (the deadline is three days prior to the trip).  You must secure your seat on the bus with a non-refundable deposit of $25.  You will also to need to complete and sign a participation form.  Check here later for instructions on how to pay this $25 deposit fee using PayPal since FOCUS no longer has office space on campus.  The remaining fee will be collected the day of the trip.

You can download a registration form and participation form below to fill out and turn it in with your deposit.

Contact Duane for any questions you may have about this trip.
