TRIPS 2017 - 2018


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 at snowy destinations. Contact us for more information.

Scotland ~ Golf and Sightseeing ~ September 22 - 30, 2017

They're returned following a fantastic time in Scotland!

Snowmass ~ January 13 - 20, 2018

What's not to like? When accommodations at Top of the Village sold out we booked units at Timberline, next door to TOV in ski-in/ski out lodging on one of the best mountains in North America. There is terrain to suit the talents of beginners or experts, with a multitude of blue cruisers for the intermediates. And don't forget, your lift ticket is also good at Aspen, Buttermilk, and Aspen Highlands. Plenty of alternative activities are available for non-skiers too!

Steamboat ~ Jauary 20- 27, 2018

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. Sarasota members will stay at The Grand, a luxurious property just steps from the center of Steamboat Resort. Lift tickets and equipment rentals will be offered at reduced FSC rates.

Jackson Hole, Wyoming ~ Feb 24 - March 3, 2018

Whether you prefer staying at the mountain resort or in the authentic cowboy town, don't waste time before signing up. Room choices will be honored in the order reservations are made, so don't waste time! As a council trip you'll enjoy great rates for lift tickets and rental equipment as well as fun FSC parties and events. See you at the Elk Refuge!

Sierra Nevada, Spain ~ March 10 - 19, 2018

Cancelled to due lack of interest.  

Snowmass Spring Break ~ March 24 - 31, 2018

By popular demand, Sarasota families are heading back to Snowmass for this year's Spring Break trip. Top of the Village offers ski-in/ski-out convenience and amenities the entire family can enjoy. Have fun both on and off the slopes -- a welcome reception, annual pizza party, and farewell dinner will provide opportunities for comaraderie among our members. Sign up early!

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!
