Christie Mountain Ski/Snowboard Trip

Ski

Join us on Saturday, February 8th from 4pm-11pm for a ski/snowboarding trip to Christie Mountain.  Meet at the Soul Garage at 4pm to grab a bite to eat before we head out.  We will return to the Soul Garage by 11pm.

Food

We will provide a light supper before we leave for Christie Mountain.  At Christie Mountain, we will provide water bottles.   Bring money if you want to purchase any snacks.

Cost

NOTE:  If we get a group of 20 or more, then we will receive a group rate, which is less than the rates listed below.

  • Supper = $5
  • Lift Tickets = $20
  • Rentals = $10
  • Tubing (Special, 2 tubers for the price of 1)

In addition to your payment, you will need to have a signed permission form and medical release form AND Christie Rental Form (if renting skis or snowboard).  If you went to the District youth conference in January in Green Bay or the Fall Retreat, you DO NOT need to fill out a medical release form, as we already have one on file for you.
