 *Late Winter Trip*

CRAFTSBURY COMMON, VERMONT

March 10th - 12th

 _____________2017_______________

 

 We are back to two weekend nights for our late winter trip to Craftsbury Outdoor Center .  There is space reserved for 21 members in twin-bedded, shared bath rooms, including one single room.  This year there is not the option for a double bedded room.  There is a small shared kitchen with a refrigerator and stove in the lodge for storing evening snacks and drinks.  The lodge has a shared lounge with puzzles and games, please feel free to bring your own games or puzzles.  The weekend includes six meals, Friday dinner through Sunday lunch.  It also includes the use of the spectacular 85km of carefully groomed trails and snowshoe trails. There is a shuttle for one-way skiers to the village.  There is a full service shop with ski and snowshoe rentals and sales.

Our price returns to $220 per person per room, double occupancy.   The single room is $275.  These prices include the 10% group discount! 

Make your checks payable to CASTA, and mail them to Sharon Bonk, PO Box 464  West Sand Lake NY 12196.  Please note  that the trip is open only to CASTA members paid for 2016/17.

Cancellation policy:   Payments will be refunded less a room cancellation fee of $20 if the request is made before February 9, 2017.  Please note that CASTA  is billed per room so that an individual's cancellation affects the second person in the room.  A waiting list will be kept to help identify a substitute. 

 

It would be great to have all the rooms taken this year!  ~ Sharon Bonk
