I'd like to plan a trip to southern Vermont for the first weekend of March, and wanted to gauge interest before I put in a lot of work.

 

Mike & I stayed at this gorgeous resort on an Okemo trip last year - it's a little pricier than the lodging you may be used to from WS&R's typical ski trips, but it's got every amenity, including indoor & outdoor heated pools, spa, exercise room, massage, and a nice on-site restaurant.  It's called the Hawk Inn & Mountain Resort.  I have yet to negotiate numbers, but I anticipate it'll be $100-$150 per person, per night, double occupancy for Friday/Saturday nights or $75-$100 if we stay through to Monday.

 

For lift tickets, Tony is working on getting us eligible for Okemo's discount that weekend, $46 on each of Saturday and Sunday.  Potter Brothers is also offering a flex day at Bromley that Sunday and Monday for $29.95 each.  If you prefer, Killington's Skye Base is also nearby, and it's actually the least crowded place to park, eat, and board the gondola at Killington.  (Shhh - don't spread this secret around.)

 

I'd try to coordinate group rates for the lodging and a Saturday night group dinner, (and possibly a Friday evening wine-and-cheese party).  Travel and skiing would be a la carte.

 

So?  Who would be interested???  Also, what's better?  Friday-Sunday?  Saturday-Monday?  Friday-Monday?

Sounds good.  I'll have to see what work is like... maybe I could sneak out earlier.  Either way, I'll just drive to you straight from work.

For March 16-18, that sounds possible. Probably in for this one.

so to confirm 198 is with 2 days skiing and two nights at the Hawk

How do we pay? Individual/direct to the lodge? Separate for lodging and lift? Or does the Hawk require one lump sum? 

This deal is individual, direct to the lodge, but let's keep track of numbers of attendees so I can try to sweet-talk them into throwing in free continental breakfasts.

 

Interested attendees should call 1-800-685-HAWK to reserve the Okemo "Stay & Ski" package: http://www.hawkresort.com/packages/index.html

 

Please also RSVP here: http://www.facebook.com/events/363460937012607/ so I can keep track of our numbers when I try to negotiate more perks from the inn.

Thanks. I'll switch this thread to "Recent comments first" because I noticed we have to click to a second page to see the latest replies.  Also will post as an event now that booking details are available.

I'm booking during my lunch break today...need a roomie!  Ladies, anyone going??

Hi folks- I posted this as a Calendar Event-- That way we can RSVP on there as well and keep it featured so that you don't have to go digging in the Discussion section to find it. 

Brian- if you want I can close this discussion down and we can continue everything on the Event page.... (Unfortunately I don't think I can move all of these comments-- but I have posted the important details that show up in them.)

VERMONT HAS THE "SCENE." NEW HAMPSHIRE HAS THE SCENERY.

You’ve skied Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont, and you’ve skied New England. Right?…
