  • On overnight trips, members will be paired and grouped into rooms by the trip leader.  Any special rooming requests should be made well in advance, with your trip application.  If single accommodation is requested, the member making the request will be held responsible for additional charges and fees as a result of the request.
  • All overnight trips require you to be a fully paid member.

Trip Leaders

  • For an overnight trip: If the trip leader does not earn complimentary lift tickets and accommodations, the profit made by the overnight trip will be applied toward the trip leaders fee (at the member's rate) for the trip. Any remaining profit made by the overnight trip will be applied toward the club treasury. If no profit is made, the trip leader is expected to pay the full rate of the trip.
  • For a day trip:  A day trip leader will not be charged a bus fee for a day trip that he/she is running.  If a complimentary lift ticket is provided by the mountain, the trip leader is entitled to that ticket. Otherwise, the club treasury will pay for the trip leader's lift ticket.

 Pricing for overnight weeklong domestic and international trips

For an overnight trip add the following on to the price the resort quotes you. 

3% for the club profit, 5% to cover any upward currency fluctuations if an overseas trip. Round up to nearest 5$ increment.  Example- Tour operator quotes a price of $1500 for a 1 week trip to St. Anton.  If foreign currency drops in value then you can always give the signups additional money off of the final payment. 

$1500 x 1.08=   $1620.  Most International trips require 25 paid to get 1 free for the trip leader.  Domestic is usually 1 free per 20 paid.  Plan accordingly or markup further if you don't think you will get 25.  Do not be excessive in markup.  If trip leader only gets 15 people or less than only a half trip should go to trip leader.  Use some judgement and don't gouge club members. Discuss with club President before pricing if you are unsure of what to do.
