Important Information

The cost of the ski trip is $670 + airfare if you sign up before December 1, from your local city. After December 1st, the price then rises to $715. The price includes the bus to and from the airport in Denver, lodging for three nights, breakfast and dinner each day, 2-day ski rentals/equipment, 2-day lift tickets, and tubing.

Your child will be flying out of your local city to the Denver Airport. There will be a staff member on certain flights from Houston and Dallas if you wish to have your child with a staff member on a flight. You may also book your ticket and have your child fly by their selves, but they MUST be in the Denver Airport no later than 11:30AM on Friday, January 13, 2017. We recommend flying DIRECT whenever possible. Please book your flight home on Monday January 16, 2017 no later than 4:00 PM unless you are on the flight with the GFC Staff.

A charter bus will pick up the group at the airport and take us to the resort. The travel time from airport to resort is approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes. The bus will return the group to the airport on Monday.

If your child’s flight is delayed, we will have a staff member wait at the airport in a rental car until the last child has arrived safely. Participants should book direct flights when possible.

We will be staying at The Vintage in Winter Park, Colorado. The cost of breakfast and dinner each day is included. Lunch on the slopes each day and while traveling is NOT included in the price.

If your child has never skied, s/he is required to take a ski lesson and the instructor will have to speak to a staff member to clear the child before s/he will be allowed to go out after the lesson. We will work with skiers of all levels to choose runs that are appropriate to their skill level.

The staff child ratio is 1 staff member per 7 children. Medical care is offered on the mountain and we will have a trained medical professional on the trip with us.

Things to know:
– Every participant, including staff, will be required to wear a helmet while on the slopes.
– Return flights need to be made after 2PM on Monday, January 16, 2017 from Denver to your local destination.
– A packing list will be provided at a later date.
