A-Basin Campout

February 10, 2013 by  
Filed under Camping

It is that time of year again to get ready for the 3rd annual A-Basin skiing, snowboard, winter camping, and just all out fun weekend! This year it will be on March 1-3. We will drive up Friday evening and then ski both Saturday and Sunday, returning Sunday evening. This event is open to all scouts and their friends and families. You may come the whole time (preferred) or just for one day (transportation is up to you). Again A-Basin is giving us some screaming deals.  If your scout is interested, Mr. Johnson will also be running a Snow sport merit badge class on Saturday if anyone is interested.

Mr. Johnson will follow up next week with a detailed itinerary but here are some of the plans so far.  Camping in the Last Chance Parking lot on Friday and Saturday. Free skiing and snow sport MB on Saturday. Pizza party and short safety talk by the Ski patrol, Saturday night. Maybe Bonn fire and dutch oven desert after dinner. On Sunday, we will have a photo scavenger hunt throughout the mountain.  A Troop 88 cookout at the “beach” for lunch that day also.

The link to the spreadsheet below has three pages. The first page is the pricing. The second page is a medical waver for the ski patrol that says they can help you if you get hurt. This must be filled out for everyone skiing. The third page is a waver only if you are renting ski equipment or a snowboard from A-Basin.

In addition to that, you will need a BSA medical form for anyone camping.  Also, any adults camping must have a current Youth Protection Training on record.

The Pizza party and the slope side grill cookout for lunch on Sunday will cost $12.00 per person for both. Other meals you can do on your own.  A-basin will give you a 15% discount on all food and beverage if you show your Troop 88 neckerchief before they ring up your food.

To get all these great discounts A-Basin requires us to sign up as a group with one payment. Therefore everyone must submit forms and money by 2/27/2013, so please plan ahead.
