IF YOU’VE NEVER BEEN, YOU MUST GO.  IF YOU HAVE BEEN, YOU ARE COMING BACK!
I
f you have never experienced Big Sky, Montana, this is the opportunity you have been waiting for to play in the snow with your Space City friends at a low price you will probably never see again!  We are staying at the fabulous Huntley Lodge, a slope side hotel.  Depending on the amount of snow, and where your room is located, you can ski right up to your room!  I know because I did just that the first time I stayed there! Worst case scenario, it is a 55 yard walk to the Explorer lift. Are you sick of trying to adapt to high altitude?  Big Sky is your answer as we stay at 7510 feet above sea level vs. the 10,000 to 12,000 feet of many Colorado ski resorts.  This package includes the best breakfast buffet you will ever experience, with just about anything your stomach desires, including omelets made to order. Meeting for breakfast daily makes for a most cohesive club trip. New members can meet new ski buddies at breakfast, so no one skis alone and everyone is immersed in the fun!!  Sick of lift lines?  What is a lift line?  They are nonexistent in Big Sky.  Your lift ticket includes the massive front and back side of Big Sky; a full 5800 of skiable acres.  If you are skiing several trips with SCSC this coming season, use your Max Pass for your lifts.  We have an incredible round trip flight on United, non-stop into Bozeman leaving at 10:00 a.m., at a price I dare you to beat!  We only have 36 seats, so sign up immediately to secure the full package as they are expected to go extremely fast!

THE SKIING AND BOARDING:  Whatever your level, you have plenty to ski/board at Big Sky!  Beginners and Intermediates can choose from 2295 skiable acres while advanced and experts have 3515 acres for their skiing/boarding pleasure.  Big Sky consists of four mountains connected by chairlifts galore.  Lift tickets are good on both sides of the four mountains touted as the biggest skiing in America.  There are a total of 23 chair lifts, including the infamous Lone Peak tram for access to the steeps.  There are also 11 surface lifts.  With over 400 inches of average snowfall per year, we are not going to run out of snow!  The average winter temperature is 25 degrees.  The longest run is 6 miles!

THE LODGING:  We will be staying right at Big Sky’s Mountain Village. Ample nightlife and restaurants are contained inside the cozy Huntley Lodge. Take the Huntley shuttle into town where there are other excellent dinner options for all price ranges.   We are staying at the popular slope side Huntley Lodge decorated with Montana antlers and wildlife galore. Did I mention the best full breakfast buffet I have ever experienced on a ski trip is included every day?   Located in the heart of Big Sky’s Mountain Village, this historic hotel was part of the late NBC New broadcaster Chet Huntley’s original vision for Big Sky Resort.  The Huntley is steps from the Explorer lift just out the back door.  Under the same roof is concierge, dining, shopping, ski storage, meeting rooms and the Solace Spa for a true massage treat.  The Huntley Lodge features Boyne Beds and convenient access to a heated pool and two hot tubs.  Your comfortable room includes a wet bar, a small refrigerator, a HDTV, free Wi-Fi, a coffee maker, a seating area, daily housekeeping and access to a free ski valet. Access to community washers, dryers and microwaves are also available. Our rates are based on double occupancy.  Porterage is also included.

TRAVEL:  We have secured 36 seats on a DIRECT flight right into Bozeman leaving at a leisurely 10:00 a.m. on United Airlines from Bush Intercontinental airport. The difference in price from the full package (with air) and the land package is only $488. 

Like short bus rides?  We aim to please.  The typical bus ride to Big Sky from our airport on our luxury private coach is one hour (50 miles).  Since we have included a short grocery/liquor stop along the way our travel time will be a little more.  Land package participants are welcome to ride our bus as long as your flights coincide with ours into Bozeman and back to IAH.

THE FUN:  A wine and cheese welcome party is included as part of this package as well as a top notch club party with more details later.  In addition to the usual after ski events (relaxing in the 2 Huntley hot tubs, daily announced Apres’ Ski events, etc.) we will be offering an optional snowmobile excursion into Yellowstone National Park.  The last time I did this we hovered 20 feet away from two male bison’s clashing horns in a fight usually only witnessed on T.V. on the Wild Kingdom!  If there is enough interest we might also arrange a group dog sledding option.  Along with the usual optional winter activities of sleigh rides, snowshoe tours and Nordic skiing, Big Sky offers unusual optional excitement including Zipline Tours and Snowcoach tours.  So bring along that non-skier adventure seeking significant other because it will be impossible to be bored on this trip!
