This is a one day event at Blue Mountain Resort in Palmerton, PA. As such, transport will be to and from Doylestown United Methodist Church Departing at approximately 6:30 AM. If a family or group is driving a maximum number of occupants for their vehicle they may proceed directly to Blue Mountain and meet the group at the resort. Slopes open for skiing and snowboarding at 8:30 AM. We plan on meeting at the main ticket location to hand out lift tickets and rental vouchers. Driving time is approximately 1.5-2 hours-see website for directions. Carpooling will be necessary but due to safety guidelines we will not “caravan” to the resort per BSA policy. This is a family event so additional family members are welcome to join for a day of winter sports fun. We need 15 skier/snowboarders to qualify for the group rates noted below.
Snow tubing is a separate activity and requires a specific reservation. If we have a large enough group (15 minimum) we may qualify for snowtubing “group rates”.
