The Austria trip is back by popular demand! This trip is exceptional in many ways, one being that you can register before the Ski Buddies October potluck … a requirement due to the early commitment date!
So act quickly and join Seattle Ski Buddies trip captain Gil Price as he takes you on a memorable week skiing a first class European resort - the Austrian Alps Arlberg region. Ski over 260 km of prepared runs on several ski areas including Lech, Zuers, Oberlech, St. Christoph.
The Apex alpine and Nordic trip is new and improved in lodging and price since the original posting (and with only four spots left)!
Improved Price: $175 per person includes 4 nights lodging at the Apex Mountain Inn, 4 breakfasts and 4 dinners (one dinner out). This works out to only $43.75 per night! Apex Mountain Inn is a full service resort hotel with ski storage lockers and true Ski-in/Ski-out accommodations . Units have queen beds, fireplaces, kitchens and living areas. (Lift tickets and transportation are extra.)
Back again by popular demand, Ski Buddies is offering a group trip to the Blewett Pass, Teanaway Valley, Suncadia, and Salmon La Sac areas of Washington State. We will be staying at the incredible Huntley Lodge , which is central to all these snow sports areas. Enjoy cross country skiing, snowshoeing, backcountry skiing or downhill skiing on this adventure for Ski Buddies.
The Huntley Lodge is a private estate nestled in the trees on 20 scenic acres in the beautiful Teanaway Valley just 6 miles from Cle Elum, WA (90 minute drive from Seattle). When entering the Main Lodge you’ll be inspired by the soaring 40 ft wall of windows in the Great Room and open floor plan that's ideal for our group. The kitchen features slab granite counters, stainless appliances, 6 burner gas cook top and an oversized dining table and beverage bar -perfect for the group meals that we have planned for this trip! The centerpiece of the Lodge is the wood burning stone fireplace and comfortable couches for telling stories late into the evening. Upstairs we’ll be greeted by a TV lounge and game tables! Outside, soak in the eight person hot tub or warm yourself by the outdoor fireplace and take in the views of the meadow and surrounding hills and mountains.
