Itinerary: Arrive Friday evening at host's chalet. Hugs & kisses, unpack, freshen up - head out to McVey's pub in the village of Mont Ste. Marie for supper, drinks and socializing. Plan to be at the pub for 7:00 eat around 7:30. Costs are your own. (Not part of $50.00/person event charge).

Saturday morning, meet at the hill to pick up downhill ski-passes. Passes are available at a discounted rate (not part of the $50.00/person event charge). Downhill ski- lessons will be made available to those who wish to learn or brush up on their skills. Cross country skiers meet at a designated time and location as well. Lunch is informal, many will meet up inside the Mont Ste. Marie lodge for lunch and a beverage or two. Often the weather is good enough to sit outside on the patio and enjoy the warmth of the sun and the friendship of others.

Around 3:00 many of the skiers are pooped and opt for heading to the Lodge for an apres ski drink or three. Typically we head back to our host's chalet to freshen up and prepare for the evening's festivities Cocktails are at 6:00 at one of our gracious chalet owners, a variety of hors d'oeuvres are served to complement the wine and beer. After cocktails we typically move to another chalet for the evening meal, some more wine, and then later coffee and high fat dessert .
