    “Super Saver Special”

    Right up front we want you to regard this as a value trip.  In spite of the USD exchange rate, we have secured a great rate for the accommodations which are in 1970's style condos.  The skiing is fabulous but there could be “variety” around the quality of each unit because they are owned and furnished by individual owners. Some units will be very well-appointed while other units will be of lesser finish with older decor. Its luck of the draw as to which unit a member will get. If you are okay with a 1970's style condo, this is a great deal unlikely to be repeated.

    Trip Highlights:

    ·                5 days of magnificent skiing on six interconnected peaks, 21 lifts including 2 gondolas at Killington resort (6 mountains, summit elevation  4,229’, vertical drop 3,050’, 155 runs)

    ·                The largest ski area in the eastern USA, 2nd greatest vertical drop next to Whiteface, NY.

    ·                  28% beginner,   33% intermediate,    39% advanced

    ·                No-charge, daily ski lessons from HPSC’s respected CSIA accredited instructors

    ·                5 day lift tickets

    ·                5 nights’ accommodation

    ·                2 BR condos sleeping 4 persons

    ·                Each condo has a well-equipped kitchen, gas fireplace, TV/DVD/Stereo, washer/dryer, free Wi-fi

    ·                No food included. A grocery run into town on Monday after skiing to stock up on supplies and refreshments for the week.

    Trip Description:

    Members will enjoy our return to Killington. Killington is a huge resort that will blow you away with so many trails and ski options during the week that it will be hard to do them all. Condo accommodation has helped keep costs reasonable in spite of the USD exchange rate. The date of the trip is the peak of the ski season and conditions should be ideal at Killington with all runs totally open. A combination of high elevation, lots of natural snowfall, and comprehensive snowmaking (71%) provides good conditions from early November until early May.  At least 50% of the runs are groomed nightly, and several are left alone for mogul enthusiasts. Expert skiers may even try the infamous double black “Outer Limits” run. We have HPSC instructors to guide us around this expansive resort. Killington is one of Vermont’s great skiing mountains and the largest resort in the East.

    This has been an HPSC favourite which offers exceptional value, great camaraderie and superb skiing. For those who have not been to Killington before, you should take advantage of the price we’ve been able to obtain for a full week of skiing. For those who have been to Killington, be forewarned that this trip will sell out quickly.

    Resort Accommodation:

    Accommodation is in Pinnacle Condominiums with 4 persons to each 2 BR condo. Condos are located at the resort base about one mile from the lifts.  A free local shuttle bus runs between the condominium complex and the main base lodge throughout each day (5 minute trip). Some restaurants and shops are within walking distance and a free shuttle bus is available in the evening to restaurants farther afield. The Activities Center on the property has two hot tubs, steam room, sauna, and games room. On the first day there will be a grocery run into town to purchase food and refreshments that you might want for the rest of the trip.

    Dining:

    There are a number of restaurants close by. A grocery run into town on Monday after skiing for members to buy groceries for breakfasts and dinners.

    Departure: 

    On Sunday February 25, 2018 from Yonge & York Mills, Toronto at 9:30 am and 10:00 am from Scarborough.

    From Killington at 2:30 pm on Friday March 2, 2018.

    Transportation: 

    To the ski area and return will be by HPSC luxury coach.

    Passport / Travel Documents:

    A valid passport is required for this US destination. A Visa may also be required if you are not a Canadian or US citizen.  It is your responsibility to have proper travel documents on your person before the trip departs. Anyone who is not admitted to the United States will have to provide their own return transportation from the border.

    Optional Travel Insurance:

    For overnight bus trips, members are responsible for arranging their own trip cancellation insurance and medical insurance. On USA trips, Out-of-Country health coverage in case of sickness or injury is strongly recommended. Insurance can be purchased from a number of Toronto sources. Some credit cards also provide coverage but check carefully that it will apply to your trip. All insurance claims must be made by the member to their own insurance company.
