Ski trip to Big Bear 20 February 2016

The TSRI Society of Fellows is organizing our annual ski trip to Big Bear Mountain Resorts for Saturday, February 20, 2016. The Big Bear Mountain Resorts are the largest ski resorts in the San Bernardino Mountains near Big Bear Lake, about a 2.5-3hr drive from TSRI. They include the Bear Mountain and Snow Summit Resorts and the same lift ticket can be used at either location throughout the day.
All TSRI personnel and one guest each are invited to join in on the fun.

Tickets will sell out for this event, so if you are interested in attending purchase your tickets early.

Ticket options:

1: $59 for one adult lift ticket that can be used at both Bear Mountain and Snow Summit.  A $20 savings over the regular Saturday rate.

2: $94 for a Lesson/Lift ticket/Equipment package for skiing or snowboarding. Includes one adult lift ticket that can be used at both resorts, equipment rentals (skis/boots/poles or snowboard/boots), and one 2-hour ski or board lesson (beginner to advanced).  Regular price is $115 without our group rate! Helmets are available for optional rental at a $7 additional charge.  If you would like to rent a helmet, include an extra $7 in your payment.  Also please note, there will be no rental of high performance equipment this year, only basic equipment will be available for rent in the above packages.

Both options include free bus transportation to and from TSRI to the resort, and a small complimentary breakfast snack (bagel, muffin) and drink in the morning.

Buses will leave Scripps at 5:30am and arrive at Snow Summit around 8:30am, unless road conditions require the busses to install chains.
Buses will depart Snow Summit at 3:30pm and arrive at Scripps around 7pm.
