Ski with Sitzmark


Friday Oct 27, 2017 Warren Miller Movie & Happy Hour

The fabulous show will be coming to the State Theatre (805 Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55402) on Friday, October 27, 2017 at 7:30pm (www.skinet.com/warrenmiller/film-tour). Sitzmark has bought tickets for the Friday night show at the group rate: just $26 each (you save $15.74 instead of buying them through TicketMaster, which charges $8.85 service fee per ticket AND $8.20 order fee - NO LIE - TM is charging $41.74!). RSVP by buying your ticket online at www.sitzmarkmn.org/skiing.html through paypal. To pay otherwise (such as with cash at the Kick-Off party), contact Sally Hed sally.hed@immunochemistry.com, 612-554-0864 (and text). Meet me before the show at Crave or the box office to get your tickets. We are generally in the bar area - ask people and watch for "Sitzmark" logo. In years past, ticket holders received a free weekday lift ticket to Lutsen, Welch Village, and others WI. They also received $25 off a purchase of $100 or more at ski shops. Make no mistake that it will sell out: in the last 5 years, we’ve had about 40+ people come to the movie and happy hour. There is a great feeling of ski camaraderie at the theater, and it’s a good place to meet other skiers. We’ve opened the event to SkiHawks and other MSC clubs, so buy your tickets ASAP! Happy hour at Crave: Meet us before the show around 5:30 or 6 for dinner/happy hour/drinks before the movie at Crave downtown (825 Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis. Updated by SAHD 9/23/17.

Saturday, January 20, 2018 Spirit Mt day trip

Message from SAHD 10/18/17: This trip was moved to Jan 20, 2018. Tentative info: Join Sitzmark and other MSC members on a day trip to Spirit Mountain (www.spiritmt.com) The price here for 2018 is tentative and may increase so buy now! (This price is just $xx more than the box office price adult weekend lift tickets which are $xx!) This unbeatable price for a day of skiing includes the lift ticket, deluxe coach bus ride, a hearty breakfast on the bus and extra snacks (such as bread, meat, hard-boiled eggs, cheese, bananas, orange juice, granola bars, fruit snacks, and more). Rentals and lessons are available for an extra fee (skis or boards; pay there; let me know when you sign up if you want lessons so they can have instructors available). In the last few years, we've had 60+ skiers each time (including many many new people) and everyone wanted to go back again! We are also offering extra lift ticket vouchers at $33 (which may increase for 2018, so buy now) for people driving up on their own, which I can mail to you in advance, or you can meet us at the mountain. These vouchers are good for any day this 2017/2018 season (redeem them at Spirit Mt). You must be an MSC member to buy the voucher as it’s a special deal our club got and they are not available for sale to the general public. Board the bus at 7 am at the Honeywell parking lot (2600 Ridgway Parkway, Minneapolis, MN 55413; park on the southwest side of the complex, by 35W). Get cozy as the bus will be full (50 people). We’ll leave at 7:30 am sharp and serve breakfast once we get rolling; we plan to arrive at Spirit Mt around 10am. Upon arrival, just gather your equipment and head to the Slopeside Room to get your lift ticket, settle in, change clothes, and relax throughout the day (we reserved the room all day but cannot guarantee complete security). Pick up your rentals and arrange lessons. For the return trip, the bus will board Spirit Mountain at 5 pm for a 5:30pm departure. We plan to be back to Honeywell around 8pm. This day trip will sell out fast, so sign up ASAP. To guarantee your seat, you must pay online at www.sitzmarkmn.org/skiing.html or contact Sally to arrange other payment in advance. If you need to cancel, please call/email me ASAP to find a replacement and I can try to resell your spot (you won’t get a refund unless I can find someone to take your place). Organized by Sally Hed Dahlquist, sally@immunochemistry.com 612-554-0864; co-hosted by Nancy Peterson of Traverskis. For just $5, buy a green Sitzmark bandana so we can find each other on the slopes! I’ll have them available on the bus. PS: If you are not a member of an MSC club and paid the member price of instead of the nonmember price of , you will have to pay me an additional $10 on the bus or join Sitzmark for $25. If you paid the nonmember price and sign up to join the club on the trip, I will refund the $10 to you. If you don’t know what clubs I’m talking about, you should have paid for the trip instead of , so bring $10 extra bucks or visit www.midwestfun.org to join a club.
