Hello Friend,
It is not known what life, travel and ski resort operations will be in 2021. Let’s be optimistic.

In light of the current circumstances, until September 1st your CVOA $50 reservation fee will be refundabl e.

Your GE&E deposit of $500 is due on September 10th, at which time you will know what travel insurance is available to you.

We hope you will ski with us in 2021!

Would you like to be the trip leader?

Our trusty leader Pete Weston is ready to pass on the baton to someone else for this 4-night trip, typically held in February. This year, the group of 21 stayed in the Hotel Manoir Victoria in Quebec City and skied three mountains. Travelers provided their own transportation by automobile, making for simpler travel, appealing to many.

The trip can be provided by our tour operator Great Events & Escapes at a very fair package price. And if there are 21 travelers, the trip leader goes free.

If you would like to know more about the trip and what is involved, request a copy of the 2020 trip brochure by contacting Cindy Foster, or give a shout out to Pete Weston at pbweston@maine.rr.com or 207-831-8565
