Utah 5-day Trip

Lucky Number 8 — Olympic Dreams
January 10 - 14, 2009 (Closed)


For those of you who watched the 2008 Summer Olympics from Beijing, you might be aware that the Games commenced on 8/8/08 at 8:08 PM due to the Chinese belief that 8 is the luckiest number. Michael Phelps might agree, considering he came home with 8 gold medals.

Well, SAGAmites, this is also the 8th year we are returning to the Wasatch front of Utah's Rockies and it's destined to be the best trip ever. And in celebration of the Olympic spirit, we will also be spending one of our days at Snowbasin ski resort near Mt. Ogden, site of the men's and women's downhill events in the 2002 Winter Olympics.   Other days will include


Honeycomb Canyon at Solitude

Alta (Snowbird for our boarding buddies) and Solitude. Our fourth day will be a wild card day to one of the Cottonwood canyon resorts.

This winter, we have a new host hotel. The price of the trip includes

  • round-trip airfare from Oakland to Salt Lake City, departing in the afternoon of Saturday, January 10 and returning in the evening of Wednesday, January 14,
  • transfers to the hotel,
  • four nights hotel stay — 2 skiers per room in 2 queen or 2 full sized beds,
  • a full sized indoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi area,
  • 3 out of 4 days lift tickets,
  • van transportation to the ski areas,
  • full hot breakfast each morning, and
  • some of the best powder snow to be found anywhere on the planet.

And did I mention the Olympian feat of pricing this trip no higher than last year's?

We are only taking 14 members on the trip this year, and over half of last year's Utah bound skiers have already said they are returning once again. So edge and wax those skis, and sign up to join us as soon as possible. We're guaranteed to be full by early November!
