Friday January 25 through Sunday January 27 - Ski Trip to Otis mountain

posted Jan 23, 2019, 5:15 PM by Troop 39 Marlborough
The troop will meet at 6:30 at the church on Friday and will return to town by 11;00 on Sunday. We will meet at the Town Hall for the drop off on Sunday.

Scouts can sign up for skiing at either Otis Mountain (smaller) or Butternut Mountain (larger). We will also offer an alternate activity for those that choose not to ski. Scouts that sign up for the trip are expected to partake in one of the offered activities.

The troop will cover the cost for the  food and will cook for the troop... patrols will be responsible to help cook and for clean up. Lunch on Saturday will be the responsibility of each scout (usually purchased a the mountain club house). Scouts choosing to go tubing will have lunch at a local restaurant... usually a pizza place where other menu items are also available. 

We typically have games and movies available on Friday and Saturday night... video games will not be allowed. 

Please plan to provide the required fees at tomorrow's Meeting. 


Costs for the Ski Trip are as follows: 

    Skiing at Butternut = $70.00  

    Skiing at Otis = $55.00   

    Alternate Activity = $30 (to be confirmed - may be $50)


    Rentals at Otis - $20.00
    Rentals at Butternut - $30

    Helmets at Otis -  $8.00
    Helmets at Butternut - $10

    Lessons at Otis - $20.00


There will be no option to stay at the cabin during the day on Saturday. If you are going on the trip, you need to sign up for a ski day or "alternate Activity".

The troop will absorb the cost of the food for the weekend and the adults will be buying and cooking the food, with the exception of Saturday lunch. Saturday lunch will be on each scout. They will have lunch on the mountain, in the lodge. Those scouts doing the alternate activity will stop at a local restaurant for Pizza or other Pizza Restaurant type food. Scouts will need money for this meal.
