Troop 287 actual
The troop decided they want to go skiing this weekend since the Air Force Academy postponed the Freez-O-Ree. This is a last minute planning decision so we are looking at two options. One is a day trip to Monarch on Saturday, the 23rd. The other is a one night overnighter where we depart and Ski Saturday and return Sunday evening. Please sign up on what you would prefer to do and we will make a final decision prior to going. For this trip we will offer the Snow Sports Merit badge for those that would like to Ski or Snowboard. To earn the merit badge, you must already be a little proficient to complete the ski tasks. For those that just want to ski/snowboard for fun, then that is fine too. If you have never skied or snowboarded then its best to have an adult dedicated to hang with those scouts because they require constant supervision.
Here are some prices to consider for the trip if you do not have your own ski gear or have a season lift ticket:
