About Our Trips!

2021-22 Ski Trips Preview

We are looking forward to hitting the slopes this ski season.  See our list of trips below and get more detailed trip information under the “Trip List” tab.

Dec. 8th – 13th  – Crested Butte (Epic Pass)

Jan. 14th – 18th – Wolf Creek (MLK Weekend)

Jan 21st – 27th – FSA @ Telluride (Epic Pass)

Feb. 18th – 22nd – Taos (Presidents Weekend)

Mar 5th – 12th – Utah – Park City, Sundance, Deer Valley (Epic Pass)

April 4th – 9th – TBD

For those of you not familiar with our trips, we take a bus and drive overnight and arrive fully rested for a full day of skiing. We also drive overnight on the way home and arrive (pending weather conditions) back in OKC in plenty of time to make your way to work if desired. It’s the best possible way to get the most ski days for the amount of time we are out of town.

Crested Butte is always a great way to start the snow sports season.  They always make our ski club great deals on group rate tickets.

Wolf Creek goes over MLK weekend in January. Year after year, Wolf Creek gets the most snow of any area in the Rockies. It is a great area with a wonderfully friendly family feel. Oh and did I mention the most snow in the Rockies!

Telluride is hosting FSA again this year. That’s the annual Flatlands Ski Association race/party/fun, fun, fun event! FSA is a group of ski clubs in the Midwest that get together for a friendly competition and a party weekend. Telluride is one of the world’s most beautiful ski resorts, this former gold rush town has been popular with skiers since the ’70s.

Taos is another extremely popular trip over Presidents weekend in February. The skiing is great and the local food and culture is amazing.

Our Premier Fly trip will be Mar. 5th – 12th to Utah – Park City, Sundance and Deer Valley. Space is limited so start planning now.

Our final trip of the year is TBD. We will update as the information is available

Trip Tips

Some of you may not know, but if you pay your trip in full when you sign up, you get to pick your spot on the bus!

We also have a new, secure location for people to park while we are away on trips.  We are parking at the OKC Will Rogers Airport Overflow Parking Lot #1.  You will turn left before you enter the terminal area and signage will be provided.  The cost is around $6 per day.

Don’t forget, you can earn $25 off your trip for each person you get to join the Ski Club…get 4 people to join and you get $100 off!

Trips are how the club is able to operate…our membership fees are low and allow us to host meetings, have a website and keep our members informed via a newsletter and social media, but trips are really the heart of this organization and we have to pay a lot of money up front to reserve lodging and transportation for each of our trips well in advance.  So, invite your friends and thank you for your support!!

RECLINER BUSES

For all of those that have been used to the sleeper bus configuration for many years, we now have to say goodbye to that experience due to regulations and restrictions passed down on bus operators from the government. We will now be using Executive Recliner Motorcoaches. 

The 40 passenger bus includes foot rests, an additional four inches of reclining, USB plugs in every seat, satellite TV included at no charge, on board Wi-Fi, Bluetooth enabled stereo, and more.

We would like to introduce the club to some pictures of the new bus so that you will be prepared for the change.  The seats recline a lot, but will not lay flat.  You will see in the pictures that the legroom in the seated position has increased substantially over the sleeper bus.  With the increased space comes a decrease in seats.  We will now be limited to 40 persons on the bus with everyone having an assigned seat.  There are no longer extra seats at the front and rear of the bus.  That means if you want a front seat you will need to sign up early and pay in full.

If you have any questions, please let us know.  Current pictures and video can be seen at the following site:  https://villagetours.net/executive-recliner-motorcoaches/

Please read the Bus Rules prior to each trip.
