Family Ski Day? Think Snow!

Posted on Jan 22 2021 - 9:50pm


Hello Troop 186,
This is a follow-up reminder about the Family Ski Day event for scouts and their families.
Please remember to take the survey if you haven’t already, the troop will use this information after this Sunday’s troop meeting to finalize details- https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CPGG57W
We also want to share additional information to help scouts and families determine their involvement in this event.
As indicated in the survey, leaders plan to use this opportunity to work on the Snow Sports Merit Badge with all interested scouts. 
The event will be held at Mount Southington Ski area, and depending on the date selected the hours will be either:
Daytime (Saturday) 9am-5pm or
Evening (Friday) 5pm-10pm
Prices are as follows:
Daytime Adult (13 & Up)
Daytime Junior (Ages 7-12)
Lift Ticket Only
Lift & Rental Equipment
Scouts will require transportation to/from the mountain by their family. 
The mountain requests people gear up at their car, because even though the lodge is open there are time and capacity limits.  There is a complimentary bag check available, but again this is subject to a limited number of bags.
Finally, the troop expects to have a small dedicated table inside the lodge for warming up. There are also several outdoor socially distanced areas to eat and/or enjoy a hot chocolate. There is also an outdoor concession window as well as several food trucks located outside the base lodge.
