Ski with Sitzmark


Friday Oct 21, 2016 Warren Miller Movie & Happy Hour

As of 10/20/16 noon, there was 1 ticket left. When sold out, Contact Sally to be on the wait list for any cancellations. The fabulous show will be coming to the State Theatre (805 Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55402) on Friday, October 21, 2016 at 7:30pm (www.skinet.com/warrenmiller/film-tour). Sitzmark has bought tickets for the Friday night show at the group rate: just $25 each (you save $7.37 instead of buying them through TicketMaster, which charges $32.37!). RSVP by buying your ticket online at www.sitzmarkmn.org/skiing.html through paypal. To pay otherwise (such as with cash at the Kick-Off party), contact Sally Hed sally.hed@immunochemistry.com, 612-554-0864 (and text). Meet me before the show at Crave or the box office to get your tickets. In years past, ticket holders received a free weekday lift ticket to Lutsen, Welch Village, and others WI. They also received $25 off a purchase of $100 or more at ski shops. Make no mistake that it will sell out: in the last 4 years, we’ve had about 40+ people come to the movie and happy hour. There is a great feeling of ski camaraderie at the theater, and it’s a good place to meet other skiers. We’ve opened the event to SkiHawks and other MSC clubs, so buy your tickets ASAP! Happy hour at Crave: Meet us before the show around 5:30 or 6 for dinner/happy hour/drinks before the movie at Crave downtown (825 Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis. Last year, Crave was really busy and some people went to other venues nearby).

Saturday January 7, 2017 Spirit Mt day trip

Join Sitzmark and other MSC members on a day trip to Spirit Mountain (www.spiritmt.com) in Duluth for just $59! Nonmembers may attend for $69. (This is just $10 more than the box office price adult weekend lift tickets which are $49!) This unbeatable price for a day of skiing includes the lift ticket, deluxe coach bus ride, a hearty breakfast on the bus and extra snacks (such as bread, meat, hard-boiled eggs, cheese, Nutella, bananas, orange juice, granola bars, fruit snacks, and more). Rentals and lessons are available for an extra fee (skis or boards; pay there; let me know when you sign up if you want lessons so they can have instructors available). In the last few years, we've had 60+ skiers each time (including many many new people) and everyone wanted to go back again! We are also offering 10 lift ticket vouchers at $33 for people driving up on their own, which I can mail to you in advance, or you can meet us at the mountain. These vouchers are good for any day this 2016/2017 season (redeem them at Spirit Mt). You must be an MSC member to buy the voucher as it’s a special deal our club got and they are not available for sale to the general public. Board the bus at 7 am at the Honeywell parking lot (2600 Ridgway Parkway, Minneapolis, MN 55413; park on the southwest side of the complex, by 35W). Get cozy as the bus will be full (50 people). We’ll leave at 7:30 am sharp and serve breakfast once we get rolling; we plan to arrive at Spirit Mt around 10am. Upon arrival, just gather your equipment and head to the Fireside Room (next to the Moosehead Lodge) to get your lift ticket, settle in, change clothes, and relax throughout the day (we reserved the room all day but cannot guarantee complete security). Pick up your rentals and arrange lessons. For the return trip, the bus will board Spirit Mountain at 5 pm for a 5:30pm departure. We plan to be back to Honeywell around 8pm. This day trip will sell out fast, so sign up ASAP. To guarantee your seat, you must pay online at www.sitzmarkmn.org/skiing.html or contact Sally to arrange other payment in advance. If you need to cancel, please call/email me ASAP to find a replacement and I can try to resell your spot (you won’t get a refund unless I can find someone to take your place). Organized by Sally Hed, sally@immunochemistry.com 612-554-0864; co-hosted by Nancy Peterson of Traverskis. For just $5, buy a green Sitzmark bandana so we can find each other on the slopes! I’ll have them available on the bus. PS: If you are not a member of an MSC club and paid the member price of $59 instead of the nonmember price of $69, you will have to pay me an additional $10 on the bus or join Sitzmark for $25. If you paid the nonmember price and sign up to join the club on the trip, I will refund the $10 to you. If you don’t know what clubs I’m talking about, you should have paid $69 for the trip instead of $59, so bring $10 extra bucks. We’re glad you are joining us!

March 3-11, 2017 Whitefish Ski Trip

All aboard for the next stop: Whitefish, Montana! We are giddy with anticipation for our Rail/Air/Ski trip to Montana next March 3-11. Picture rolling out of the beautifully restored Grand St Paul Union Depot at ten o’clock pm on a Friday night. You will enjoy having drinks and talking with friends until the wee hours while we are hurtling (trundling?) Westward towards Montana. Later you may retire into to relative comfort of an (optional addl. expense) sleeper compartment on the rail line that James J. Hill of the Great Northern Railroad built in the 1800's. The less expensive base option will be to buy a coach seat that reclines with AC outlets where you will be able to have a comfortable ride and roam parts of the train... See America like some of our ancestors did. We will arrive in Whitefish Montana about 8 PM the following night after seeing some of the foothills of the Rocky Mountains before dark. After a short bus ride and grocery stop we will arrive at our slope side condos a couple hours later. The luxury condos are in the midst of a mountain village with 5 restaurants/bars and gathering spots and the ability to ride a free shuttle into the town of Whitefish to rustle up some trouble/excitement there. You will have the opportunity to experience some of the best skiing of your lives with 3000 acres of snow fields and helicopter and Snow Cat skiing as well. Whitefish is known for consistent snowfalls in March of 5"-8" as opposed to infrequent huge dumps of snow. Two or three bedroom Condos are available and trip pricing will be out soon to your club reps so start lining up your roommates! A bonus will be an optional ski trip to Fernie Ski Resort in British Columbia for about a two hours bus ride North for the adventurous crew in our cadre. I’m proud to present our trip co-organizer Jerry Ratliff who is a world traveler with lots of train experience and will answer our questions before and during the trip (we won't be sure if he is making stuff up until later!). This is an MSC endorsed Ski trip open to all Ski Clubs. Please see our ad in the Sportster and sign up for one of the greatest ski and vacation experiences that North America can offer. We can send you the signup form or please access them on the sitzmarkmn website. This could be one of the rollicking best ski vacations you will ever experience: The nostalgia of the railroad outbound trip, great friends old and new, World class skiing, and a possible visit with our northern neighbors!
