Fellow Monmouth Ruggers
As a long-time member of Monmouth Rugby and the current President of the Monmouth Ski Club, I would like to invite you to join me at our lodge in Pittsford, Vermont for a weekend of skiing, boarding, sight-seeing and all-around fun.
This Event is scheduled for the first weekend of February – Thursday, Feb 2nd through Monday, Feb 6th. This trip can be as short as late Friday through Sunday or as long as late Thursday through Monday and I will discuss these options with whoever decides to go.
Our lodge is about 5 hours drive from the Red Bank area and is located approx. 25-30 minutes from Pico and Killington Ski Mountains near Rutland, Vt. Although it can sleep a maximum of 32 people, a group in the 15-24 range would be much more comfortable. And if only 3-4 of you want to go, we can do that as well. There will be two “couples” rooms available with everyone else staying in one of 4 bunkrooms. There are 4 full bathrooms.
If you or your significant other doesn’t ski or board, I have a list of many other activities that can be enjoyed around the area.
The Ski Club has a Chef – Mark – who will be available to cook some breakfasts and some dinners on the Saturday & Sunday while we are there. Interestingly, Mark used to bartend at various Lake Placid-Saranac Lake bars way back in the day so he will be more than ready for a rowdy Rugby crew.
We have a lot of room at our lodge and it is very inexpensive to stay there. Costs are as follows:
Lodge – $30 /night
Linens – $5 / weekend
Breakfasts – $9.50 each
Dinner – $ 19.50 each
Everyone will have to go online to buy their own ski tickets but I will provide details on this at a later time. If you would prefer not to go to Killington/Pico, Okemo is about 50 minutes, Mt. Snow / Stratton are 1:10, Mad River / Sugarbush are 1:30 and Stowe is 2:00 away so feel free to use whatever Ikon or Epic Ski Passes you might have.
Therefore, a 3-night/2 breakfast/1 dinner visit would be $133.50, while a 2-night/1 breakfast/1 dinner would be $94, plus lift tickets and miscellaneous.
I’m looking forward to having my fellow ruggers join me up in Vermont so start thinking about this and sign on to be a part of this trip. To reserve a spot, please Venmo a $50 deposit to @MRFC50 with “ski trip” as the annotation, or send a check to me at:
