Snowmass ~ January 13 - 20, 2018

What's not to like? Deluxe accommodations at Top of the Village 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.

Sierra Nevada, Spain ~ March 10 - 19, 2018

Been there, done that, and we're going back to ski the Sierra Nevada Resort in Spain! The hotel in Granada allows easy transfer to the ski resort or one of the optional daily excursions to tour Granada and the Alhambra, Cordoba, Flamenco Show, or the Tropical Coast & Nerja Caves. Several nights will then be spent in Torremolinos, Costa del Sol.  Optional day trips from Costa del Sol: Ronda, Gibraltar, Tangiers, and Malaga. An optional post trip extension has been planned to Lisbon, Portugal. Don't miss this awesome opportunity.

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

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.  Don't miss this opportunity of a lifetime!
