TRIPS 2018 - 2019


We hope you'll join us on at least one trip. We're a club of fun members from diverse backgrounds and ages, all with a common interest in spending time and enjoying beautiful places, particularly at snowy destinations. Contact us for more information.

Snowmass ~ January 19 - 26, 2019

We've already booked the condos at Top of the Village in 2019 and 2020!!  Reservations have already being accepted so get your deposits in as soon as possible. Each year Sarasota members congregate in the Snowmass/Aspen area for some of the best skiing in North America on four different mountains - Snowmass, Aspen, Aspen Highlands, and Buttermilk - each with a unique personality but all on the same lift ticket with free transportation between the resorts.  Join us!

Big Sky ~ Jauary 26 - February 2, 2019

Members will meet up with other Florida Ski Council clubs for a fun week of snow riding and festivities during the annual FSC January Ski Week.  Lots of fun FSC events are planned including 2 evening parties with dinner and dancing, the Florida Cup Race, FSC lunch, a "Sno-bar" apres ski, and a video showdown.  Join us!

Park City, Utah ~ Feb 23 - March 2, 2019

Join fellow club members in Park City, Utah where the ride from the airport to the condos takes less than 45 minutes!!  On this trip members will be staying in town where great restaurants and nightlife are plentiful, and it's just a 2 minute walk to the town lift that takes you to the ski resort.  Members  purchasing a 4 or more day lift ticket have the option to use at least 1 day at Deer Valley (2 days with a 5 day ticket or 3 with a 6 day lift).  Plan to be there for a fun time!

Venice & Cortina, Italy ~ March 6 - 16, 2019

Details about the trip to Italy will appear as soon as the website allows us access.  Sorry for the delay!  Information is coming soon...…...

Steamboat Spring Break ~ March 16 - 23, 2019

Join fellow Spring Breakers in the land of "Champagne Powder," whether its for some groomed cruisers or through the glades.  Maybe you get to make some turns with Billy Kidd or one of the other famous Olympians who call Steamboat home.  Spend a day off from skiing at the hot springs or visiting the quaint cowboy town.  Don't miss out -- Send your reservation soon!

Bike & Barge Champagne Country, France ~ May 29 - June 10, 2019

Contact Lynda immediately if you are interested in the trip to France.   Enjoy touring the world famous city of Paris, but also the Champagne region, famous of course, for producing Champagne wine. From your base on board your floating hotel, the barge MS Zwaantje, you will have the opportunity to cycle to boutique wineries, sample a variety of champagnes, taste delicious Brie cheese and generally discover everything the Champagne UNESCO world heritage region, which is centred on the towns of Epernay and Reims, has to offer.

New Zealand Sightseeing & Adventure ~ November 2018 ~ Optional pre-trip extension to Australia ~ Optional post-trip extension to Fiji

This non-skiing trip to the lands down under is during their Spring season. Prior to the week in New Zealand, members will have the option to extend the trip in Australia, staying in Cairns and Sydney before heading to New Zealand.  Then, following the stay in Auckland on the north island, we'll transfer by motorcoach to Rotorua with a tour of the "Lord of the Rings" Hobbiton Village enroute. We'll also have a Maori experience and learn about their culture before flying to Queenstown on the south island. Enjoy a cruise across the lake to Walter Peak where there's a demonstration of sheep herding by the well trained dogs.  There's plenty of adventure surrounding Queenstown like bungee jumping and  Shotover jet boat rides, and of course we'll offer an optional day trip to Milford Sound. If you want a stopover on the way back to the US, sign up for the post trip extension in Fiji.  Don't miss this opportunity of a lifetime!
