Ski Trip Campout - sign up now!

Family and friends are invited to join us for a day of skiing!

Hey Troop 3 - ready for the downhill?  Our ski trip campout is next month, February 24-26th.  We’ll be camping in the shelter at Camp Crown and we’ll spend Saturday skiing at Wilmot Mountain ski area. And yes, you read that right:  we have the shelter reserved at Camp Crown, so we don’t have to sleep in tents in February!

I know February 25th may seem like a long way away, but we need to get an idea of how many people we will have. Also, while I’ll be leading the trip, I need at least one more adult to sign-on to be there, possibly more than one depending on number of scouts - since we’ll need to transport everyone to and from Camp Crown. 

Also:  if we have at least 15 people skiing, we can get a significant discount.  So I’d also like to invite family members to join us for skiing on Saturday and they too can benefit from the troop discount.  

And since Wilmot Mountain is only a one hour drive from Evanston, it's easily drive up just for the day to ski with us.

Things to know about the skiing:

  • skis, boots, poles and helmets are included - you don’t need any equipment (but let me know if you’ll be bringing your own)
  • a ski lesson is included

The costs for all scouts will be covered by the troop. 

The discounted price for family members joining us for a day of skiing:  Lift ticket $44, equipment rental $22, helmet rental $10.

So whether you’re an experienced skier, have never tried it, or anywhere in between, come on out!

I know it’s early, but please sign up now if you are planning to go. And if you are thinking about it, but not quite sure, or if you have questions, please send me an email or give me a call. Also, the sign-up is for the campout, but again, we would welcome friends and family to join us for the day for skiing at Wilmot. So if anyone is planning to come up for the day and ski with us, please send me an email.

We really need to get an early idea of how many we’ll have, so please sign up now, or drop me an email to let me know what your plans are.  And again, I need at least one adult to join me in providing adult leadership for the weekend.

Sign ups for camping and skiing: 

Scouts sign up here

Adults sign up here

Skiing only, and not camping?   Again, we’d love to have family and friends join us for a day of skiing. We don’t have a sign up form for folks coming up to ski with us for the day, so just drop me an email and let me know you’ll be coming (and if you are bringing others, how many) so that we can get a headcount. 

Any questions, feel free to email me or give me a call - Jeff Wootton
