    A message from Stew Price:

    I’ve logged quite a few ski days at Beaver Creek over the years, and I have to tell you it is one of the finest ski resorts for a mix of skiers of all abilities (like, for a ski club).  This mountain has it all:  19% “greens”, 52% “blues”, and 39% “blacks”.  If you’re a “casual” skier, Beaver Creek’s big blue groomers are the best in the world, and if you’re a “wild one”, Beaver Creek’s Birds of Prey World Cup downhill course will make you humble!  If you’re looking for a change of pace, Vail is a 20-minute bus ride away and is included in your lift ticket.

    ‘Not exactly roughing it’ is Beaver Creek’s campaign slogan, and for good reason.  The slopes are meticulously groomed and uncrowded, the lifts are all high-speed, and there are freshly baked cookies waiting for you at the bottom of the lift!  Most of us have learned that ski-in/ski-out accommodations make all the difference in the world.  Our 3-bdrm Highlands condos are literally on the slope.  You take the elevator from your room down to the bottom floor locker/ski storage, suit up, and carry your gear out the door a whole ten feet and snap in.  You can take the private “Highlands Lift” up, or take the ski trail down to the village lifts.  Not exactly roughing it.

    We’re planning some great social activities with this trip, with a wine and cheese reception when we arrive, a couple of apres ski socials, and a “margarita night” that you won’t want to miss.  There are many great restaurants in the village, and with a free continuous shuttle, everything’s an option.  Also included with our stay at the Highlands is complimentary access to the Allegria Spa, for those of you who want to really indulge yourselves.

    Nancy and I hope you’ll join us at Beaver Creek this season.  If you haven’t been there yet, you need to do it.  If you’ve been there before you know what I’m talking about!

    A message from Sharon Pardue:

    Whistler is a town north of Vancouver, British Columbia, that's home to Whistler Blackcomb, one of the largest ski resorts in North America.  Besides skiing and snowboarding, the area offers snowshoeing, tobogganing and ski jumping at the Olympic Park, a venue for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.  The hub of Whistler is a compact, chalet-style pedestrian village at the base of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains.  W
    histler is a true winter wonderland and was ranked as the # 1 North America Ski Resort for off-hill activities by Ski Magazine in 2015. 

    Think of Whistler Village as your home away from home, with added mountains.  A stroll along the stone walkways will reveal all the creature comforts you need (plus a few luxuries you really want).  And when it's time to escape, the great outdoors is just steps away.  From casual après-ski snacks to fine dining, Whistler's award-winning restaurants offer diverse dining options with many featuring organic, locally sourced ingredients.  Satisfy your cravings with a multitude of places to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner with price ranges to suit every budget.

    You will experience an unparalleled perspective of British Columbia while riding the longest and highest lift in the world.  The world record breaking PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola was built for sightseers, skiers and snowboarders alike and joins Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains meaning you do not have to choose which mountain to spend your day on.  Whistler has it all: 200 marked runs, 8,171 acres of terrain, 16 alpine bowls, and 3 glaciers.  Whistler Mountain has 20% “greens”, 55% “blues”, and 25% “blacks” and Blackcomb Mountain has 15% “greens”, 55% “blues”, and 30% “blacks.

    Conveniently located in the heart of Whistler Village, the Delta Whistler Village Suites is the perfect full service getaway.  The Delta Whistler Village Suites’ offers beautifully appointed one and two bedroom suites, fully equipped kitchens, in-suite washer/dryer, balconies, fireplaces, 1 heated outdoor pool and 3 hot tubs, saunas, and fitness center.

    We’re planning some great social activities with this trip, with a wine and cheese reception when we arrive, a couple of apres ski socials, and a group dinner that you won’t want to miss. I hope you’ll join me at for this wonderful trip to Whistler BC.
